New this year, AP Studio Art and Honors Art students will feature their work in the Schulze Learning Lab (D104), as well as the hallways near Albers Atrium and the Florance Center. Please join us in appreciating the time and talent that so many students exhibit in their work.

Are you interested in current events in our country and the world? Do you like to talk about and debate political issues? Are you a Democrat, Republican, or unsure? No matter your political background and interests there’s a place for you at DeLaSalle’s Political Affairs Club! This is a new club at DE that is starting this spring. The organizational meeting is Thursday at 3:15pm in D207. There will be food, open discussion, and important debates – come join us to help form this new activity!

The DeLaSalle Cycling Club will ride after school on Friday. Come enjoy some beautiful spring weather as we ride along a bike boulevard on 5th Street SE. We will explore the Dinkytown neighborhood and then return to campus. If you picked up a waiver in the past, please get it signed by your parent or guardian and bring it back this week.

Students are encouraged to bring their bike to school that day and to lock it to a bike rack outside the building. All participants will be required to wear a helmet in order to ride. We will meet in A206 from 3:15-3:30pm and will ride from 3:30-4:30pm.
