Delran High School Broadcast

June 7, 2018

A Message from Mr. Finkle!

Dear Parents of Underclassmen:

Schedules were given to the students this afternoon for next year. Please review the schedule carefully to ensure that the courses that were requested appear. Understand that this is a tentative schedule, and it may not be exactly the same in September. During the summer months, schedules are subject to change as a result of class balancing, room or staff changes, and alterations due to unforeseen circumstances.


There will be absolutely no changes to schedules after July 31st.


Counselors will be in throughout June and July to help and support schedule changes. Please remember that unless your child was recommended for a course, a waiver is not possible at this time. Any counselor can help with schedule changes. If you wish to meet with your child’s specific counselor, an appointment can be made through the Guidance Office at extension 3008.


After the mailing of the final schedules in early August, there will have to be an exceptional reason for a change to be considered at that time. Therefore, the only changes that will be considered by the high school administration are those that are deemed educationally sound.



Dear Parents of Seniors:

We are exactly one week away from graduation, and we would like to make graduation an exciting and enjoyable event for both students and parents. I am respectfully requesting your help and support for the following:

  • On May 7th, a detailed letter was sent home to senior parents regarding mandatory graduation practices and graduation. As stated in the letter, graduation tickets are not required if the ceremony is held outside. In the event of inclement weather, graduation will be held in the gym. Due to limited seating, only four guests will be allowed to attend. Tickets will be distributed at practice on Friday morning. The ceremony will be streamed live on our web site, in the media center and the performing arts center. We will do our very best to hold the ceremony outdoors.

  • Please be mindful and respectful of your neighbor during this important event. Please do not bring balloons to the ceremony whether it will be held outdoors or indoors. We receive many complaints after every graduation ceremony from family members and friends that they had a difficult time viewing the ceremony because of the obstruction.

  • The procession will begin promptly at 7pm. Due to the large volume of cars, parking will be a challenge. I ask everyone to give yourself extra time that evening. If anyone needs to be driven to the football field, the custodial staff will be available with golf carts. Please drop off your family members at the gymnasium doors.

  • Diplomas will be distributed to the seniors during the ceremony. Only one copy has been ordered for each student. Getting a duplicate copy is costly and time consuming.

  • The Class of 2018 worked extremely hard. They deserve to enjoy the fruits of their labor with little distractions so please plan your arrival time accordingly.


All obligations/book fines must be paid in full by Thursday, June 14th. Any senior who has an outstanding obligation will not receive their graduation cap and gown after graduation rehearsal on Friday, June 15th. If you have any questions regarding an obligation or book fine, please contact Mrs. Susan Jordan at sjordan@delranschools.org or (856) 461-6100 x3003.


Project Graduation

The Delran Middle and High School PTA is proud to be sponsoring Project Graduation 2018 on Friday, June 15th from 9:15pm to 2:30am at The Moorestown Field House. Project Graduation is a drug and alcohol free party for the graduates held on graduation night. It allows our graduates to celebrate with their fellow classmates in a safe environment. Additional information is posted below.


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

Good luck to Miekel House who will be competing in the Meet of Champions at Northern Burlington High School on Saturday, June 9th in the 100 meter dash. He placed 2nd at the Group 2 Championships last weekend, and we are excited to cheer him on this weekend.


Another spring season at Delran High School has come to a close and the students have given us another reason to be proud. It was amazing to watch the hard work, determination and teamwork that each student showed. Great sportsmanship, effort and resilience was on display at each contest, everything that Delran wants to see from its student body. Go Bears!

The school year is coming to an end. So too is the life of your school shoes. What will you do with them? Most likely you’ll toss them in the trash. But wait…there’s a much better plan.


ShoeBox Recycling is a recycler of shoes. Its mission is to recycle as many pairs of shoes as possible while offering the opportunity to find your SoleMate in the process. With over 300 million pairs of shoes hitting landfills each year, ShoeBox Recycling is looking to change the way people think about their shoes and the need for reuse around the globe. In short, this program reduces waste, creates an economy in areas that need it and provides money to the athletic training program for the purchase of additional health and safe supplies.


ShoeBox Recycling take all types of wearable pairs of men’s, women's and kid’s shoes. The only shoes we do not take are Heavy Winter Boots, Skates, Blades, Flip-Flops, Slippers, Crocs, Singles or Unusable. They take shoes in all shapes, sizes and colors. In return they pay the DHS Athletic Training Program for each pound we keep from hitting the landfill. So, bring them in! Recycling boxes can be found outside of the athletic training room at DHS.
