A message from Mr. Finkle!

I want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving! Please take this time to enjoy some quality time with family and friends.


Congratulations to the cast and crew of "If A Man Answers!" The show was completely entertaining and I laughed a great deal due to your timing and delivery of the lines. Theater is alive and well here in Delran and I am waiting with baited breath for our Spring Musical...Little Shop of Horrors.


I also wish to congratulate Caitlyn Auguste, Sophia Chasca, Javera Chaudhry, Andrew Chojnacki, and Kelly Deschaine for auditioning and being chosen for the All South Jersey Regional Choir! They will perform on January 27th and 28th at Washington Township High School.


Our Student Government is also very busy planning an Adult Talent Show to be put on in late December. Our teachers will be showcasing their talents beyond what they do in the classroom. More about this in future issues. It will be an event you can't miss!


Coming up December 4-9 is the Computer Science Education Week and the

Delran Schools are celebrating with a variety of Hour of Code activities. Click HERE to see activities planned at DHS and at the other schools throughout the district!


If you ever have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me at dfinkle@delranschools.org or 856-461-6100 x3005.

If your child gets a new physical, do not wait to turn it in. The procedure for approval has been altered due to the change in school physician. Turn all new physicals into Mr. Guidotti or Ms. Jordan on any Monday of any month so that the approval process can be completed efficiently. Any issues with ATS, please contact the main office for guidance. The Winter season is shaping up to be another memorable time for the students of Delran. Go Bears!!!

Alumni Walk

Alumni Walk Update- We are paving the way to celebrate Bear Pride! The latest pavers were installed last week along with the an Inlay from the Class of 2016! The Advisors from the Class of 2017 are working on their inlay design. We are very hopeful this year’s Senior Class will buy a brick and cast their permanent legacy on DHS. It looks like we have established a new tradition of not only allowing a platform for individuals, but also each graduating class as a whole, to leave their mark. Please consider purchasing a brick in order to pave the entire walkway. The link for purchasing a brick is below. We would also like to acknowledge the work of Best Cut Lawn-care and Landscaping for installing our bricks. They have donated their time and talents to DHS and provided their work free of charge. Thanks you Phil Velo and Best Cut.
