Students May Begin Requesting 2021-22 Courses February 12

Returning students in grades 9-10-11 will take the next step forward in their enrollment for the 2021-22 school year when they request courses starting next week. On Wednesday, February 10, students will receive an email with a course request worksheet that will help them identify required courses and elective course possibilities. Students will discuss their individual course options with their academic mentor during mentor meetings February 10 from 1:30-3:00pm. Students should also consult with their families and teachers to identify course selections that will help them meet requirements for graduation. Students select courses electronically and will receive an emailed course registration link on Friday, February 12 to begin requesting courses. Course requests must be submitted by Friday, February 26.

2021-22 Registration Deposit Will Be Added to March Tuition Invoice

As part of our continuous enrollment process, the 2021-22 non-refundable registration deposit of $350 per student will be added to your TADS tuition accounts for March billing.  Monthly payers will have this deposit added on your normal tuition payment date.  For families who have paid tuition in one or two installments, we will add an additional invoice to their agreement and TADS will process the registration deposit from their account. Ron Rice manages family tuition accounts at DeLaSalle. Please contact him with further questions at 612-676-7601.

DeLaSalle to Bless New Gym Floor February 19

DeLaSalle has a new gym floor! Crews recently finished installing the new floor after a water leak in November caused the old floor to buckle and rendered it unusable. The new floor reflects the new DeLaSalle logo and brand identity that we unveiled in the fall. School chaplain, Fr. Kevin Kenney ‘78, will bless the new floor during a short pregame ceremony Friday, February 19 before the varsity boys’ basketball team hosts the Academy of Holy Angels at 7:00pm. You can tune into a livestream of the game (find the livestream link on the Athletic Programs webpage the week of the game).
