Financial Aid Night

Delran High School will host our annual Financial Aid Night tonight, Thursday, October 27th at 6:30 p.m. in the Media Center. Financial Aid Nights have become an important tool to communicate financial aid information to parents and students new to the process. These events can raise parent and student comfort, just as they raise awareness of the most important financial aid issues that must be addressed. A representative from HESAA will provide families with information on all of the Federal and State grants, scholarships and loan programs available through the FAFSA. Key information and requirements on filing the FAFSA are covered. The presentation is approximately one hour in duration and includes materials. All are welcome, but we especially encourage parents of seniors and juniors to attend. We look forward to seeing you!

Students of the Month

Congratulations to Kayla Daly and Margot Clarke!

The winners were provided with two Philly Passes which grants them admission to over 40 attractions in Philadelphia over a 24 hour period. The students were nominated by their teachers, Ms. Sanchirico and Ms. Rubano.

Schedule Change for 10/28 & 10/31!

Congratulations to the Girls' Varsity Field Hockey Team and the Boys' Varsity Soccer Team who are in the state tournament and have home games scheduled. The field hockey game is on Friday, October 28th, and the soccer game is on Monday, October 31st. I have been asked to amend the schedule to allow students and staff to attend the games if they so choose. We will follow a Grade Level Schedule both days. The afternoon buses will arrive at 2:00 for dismissal. Good luck to both teams! Please come out and support our Bears!

Assembly Program - Steriods

What do you know about APEDs (Appearance and Performance Enhancing Drugs)? It’s not all about steroids. These include nutritional and dietary supplements that are readily available in grocery stores, vitamin stores, health food stores and online. The Taylor Hooton Foundation will bring us important, eye-opening information, a fascinating story and more on Thursday, November 3rd. All students will gather to hear the program during the school day. The community is invited to hear the program in the evening at 6:30pm in the Performing Arts Center.

Diversity Day

The MS/HS PTA is sponsoring "You Don't Know Me Until You Know Me" with Dr. Michael Fowlin assembly on Wednesday, November 9th. In his one-man presentation, Dr. Fowlin takes the audience on an experiential journey, having them reexamine core precepts that were taught to us from as early on as 1st grade. He uses many of his gifts – humor, performance art, poetry, storytelling, psychology, theatrical monologues, and his personal journey – to create a moving experience for all who are open to this evolution. A big thank you to the PTA for their support and generosity.
