There’s something for everyone at DeLaSalle, and we want you to get involved!  Hundreds of you participate each year in fine arts programs, academic clubs, and other organizations through our robust Student Activities program. Some groups compete and others do not.  Some are seasonal and others meet throughout the year.  These co-curricular activities provide students with opportunities to connect with their classmates, enrich their skills, and pursue topics that interest them. We encourage students to explore the many activities we offer here. And we invite students to register here to participate in a club or organization.

Are you interested in learning a survival skill that was started 40,000 years ago? Do you want to be able to feed yourself if you ever get lost in the wilderness?

The first meeting will be in Mr. Sczepanski’s room, B302, at 3:10pm, on Tuesday, September 15. Atlatl Society meets Tuesdays after school from 3:10 to 4:10. We will throw darts at targets and for distance. If the weather is lousy, we will remain in my classroom and apply fletching to darts to use in the future. Please see Mr. Sczepanski if you have any questions.

The DeLaSalle Cafe serves breakfast daily with easy grab ‘n go options to give you a boost to start your day. A student breakfast costs $2.00 and includes yogurt, muffin, orange juice, and milk. You can buy breakfast from the mobile cart located in the hallway behind the Florance Center stage (the hallway right across from the Albers Atrium entrance).

Students who participate in hybrid learning on campus may purchase breakfast and lunch each day. Breakfast will be sold from a mobile cart located behind the Florance Center stage (in the hallway across from the Albers Atrium entrance). Lunch will be sold from a mobile cart near your child’s 3rd or 7th period class (on the first and second floors of the A building, and also on the second floor of the B building). Lunch will occur during three different waves between 11:30am-1:30pm – when you eat depends upon which class you are in. Find the lunch wave schedule in the Lunch menu section at the top of the Source.

Students who wish to purchase lunch should complete this form at the beginning of their first class period of the day so we can get an accurate count of how many lunches to serve. A student lunch costs $3.25 and includes a pre-packaged main entree, fruit or vegetable, and milk. You may find the lunch menu each day in The Source. A student’s LunchTime account will be charged according to their eligibility (paid, reduced, or free).

Parents are reminded that a student must have sufficient funds in their LunchTime account in order to purchase food from the DeLaSalle Cafe. Families may deposit money electronically into their child’s LunchTime account (click here for instructions on how to create and manage your LunchTime account). DeLaSalle this year will not accept cash or check payments at the school to prevent the handling of currency. Please contact with questions.

Students who do not wish to purchase a lunch may bring their own cold lunch from home. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, microwaves are not available and we suggest packing the lunch in a lunch bag with an icepack to keep the food cold.

If you qualified for Free or Reduced lunch benefits in the 2019-20 school year, you must re-apply for the benefits for the 2020-21 school year by Monday, October 12. You can find the application here.

Orders must be placed by noon on the first day the student attends in-person instruction (Monday or Thursday) and picked up outside the kitchen at the end of the school day on the last day they attend (Tuesday or Friday).
