Delran High School Broadcast

April 26, 2018

A Message from Mr. Finkle!

Well, it looks like Spring may have actually arrived! Please enjoy the wonderful weather by coming out and supporting our Bears on the softball, baseball, and lacrosse fields, as well as stopping by the tennis courts and the stadium to watch our athletes compete!


I wish to call to your attention the Alumni Walk information listed below. What a great memory for every graduate as their name will forever be a part of the Delran High School fabric. Please consider purchasing a brick in your child's name before the May 11th deadline.


I wish to thank the PTA and all of the work that they do to support the students of DHS throughout the school year. From sponsoring assemblies to helping students in need, to running Project Graduation, your help and support are appreciated. The Gift Basket Extravaganza was a grand success and we thank each and every person who donated items, time, and effort! We couldn't provide everything for our students without your help!


If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact me at dfinkle@delranschools.org or (856) 461-6100 x3005.

Academic Awards Night

We look forward to honoring our seniors and underclassmen again at our Scholarship Night on Thursday, May 31st! During Scholarship Night, the Principal's Award and community scholarships will be presented to the seniors. We will also honor seniors and underclassmen with the #1 Club Award for spring sports!

Congrats Principal's List & Honor Roll

Congratulations to all the students who achieved Principal's List and Honor Roll List for the 3rd marking period. Principal's List students enjoyed a wonderful dessert on Monday in recognition of their achievement.

Alumni Walk DEADLINE EXTENDED TO 5-11-18

We are paving the way to celebrate Bear Pride! 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. The new deadline is Monday, May 11th. 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. Click HERE for more information.
