World Languages

This month, students are gearing up for the Seal of Biliteracy test. The test is a statewide assessment given to juniors and seniors, who have completed four or more years of study in a foreign language, or who can demonstrate proficiency in another world language, as well as English. This year we have students not only taking the test in French, German, and Spanish, but also in Portuguese, Turkish, Hindi, and Chinese.


The World Language Department is so proud of all our students who are taking this test. It is also a testament to the rich and diverse culture we have in our community. We are looking forward to celebrating the seniors at graduation who pass this exam. They will receive an official Seal of Biliteracy on their transcripts, as well as a certificate of achievement. Good Luck to all those who are taking part!!

Scholarship Opportunities

Many new scholarship opportunities are being posted on the Guidance webpage. OVER 50 individual scholarships are posted.


Check back often as we make updates as information is received. Although many scholarships are exclusive to seniors, there are quite a few that accept applications from underclassmen.


For the most part, these scholarships are offered each year, so it’s a good idea for underclassmen to check out what is being offered and begin a “scholarship portfolio”. They can prepare the applications/essays, view the criteria, and think about letters of recommendation they may need.

The Quell Foundation believes education is the key to understanding, supporting, and generating awareness of the mental health issues millions of people face today. They offer four awards to spread their message further. This opportunity is open until February 15th.

Financial Aid

Financial Aid Night was held on November 18th. The Director of Financial Aid at TCNJ presented beneficial information pertaining to the types of financial aid, the application process, and the financial aid package. Please see the Guidance webpage to view the Power Point presentation.

ATHLETIC NEWS

Mr. Guidotti's Update

Delran High School Winter sports will be back at DHS this year. Delran High School has the pixellot system from NFHS for live streaming events. It is a subscription service. $10.99 per month gives you access to all home events including wrestling, boys basketball, and girls basketball. In addition, you will have access to any away teams that also use the NFHS pixellot system like Moorestown and Pennsauken when the Bears play there. The link to order your subscription is https://www.nfhsnetwork.com/schools/delran-high-school-delran-nj


Masks are required for all indoor extracurricular activities including Basketball and Wrestling. If you are coming to watch a sporting event, you must wear a mask.


Anyone interested in participating in a Spring Sport at Delran High School? Registration is now open. All requirements must be completed by March 3rd in order to participate. If you recently had a physical, do not hold onto it. Turn it into the main office at DHS. The link for registration is here.


We, like many other districts, are continuing to struggle with transportation for students and extracurricular activities due to a bus driver shortage. To combat this, we have changed game schedules and game times. We do, however, anticipate that there will be days that there just are no buses available. The Delran Township BOE has a Transportation by Private Vehicle policy (Policy 8660) in place for situations that may occur. In addition, the BOE along with the Superintendent has developed a permission process that would allow a driver of a student to carpool with other students in the event that a parent/guardian is unable to take their child to a board-approved activity. HERE is a permission form for parents who are able to transport their child to/from away sporting events. HERE is a permission form for parents who are unable to provide transportation, but agree to have their child transported by another parent. Students who drive are able to drive to the contest; however, they MAY NOT transport a teammate. In order for our students to get the most out of this school year, we must work together to develop solutions. Thank you so much for your support, patience, and understanding during these times of uncertainty.


We have been asked questions about our canine friends and whether they are allowed to attend home events. Unfortunately, the answer is no. Dogs are not allowed on district property at any time as we will not take on the liability. Please leave your dogs at home when you attend our events. Thank you very much!


The fitness center will be open Monday through Thursday from 2:30 pm to 3:45 pm. A fitness center permission form must be filled out and dropped off at the main office before permission is granted. The form can be found here. At this time, masks must be worn while using the fitness center.
