Every new school year brings many changes and this school year is no different. Delta High School is finishing up some changes in the first phase of the winterization project. Change can be exciting and provide an opportunity for everyone to contribute in a positive way. All of us should take a moment to look at the contributions we can make to ensure a successful and productive school year.
The summer was short and soon all of us will have an opportunity to visit with old friends, make new friends, and start a new school year with all of the same excitement and new experiences that it will bring. Staff at New Horizons High School and the Delta Cyber School are preparing for the return of students. You can expect that the faculty and staff have put every effort into making the school year will be both academically challenging and rewarding. Gerstle River School students and staff are already off and running for the new school year.
The Delta Cyber School is currently enrolling students in a wide variety of courses ranging from a full Home School curriculum to individual classes that students can take to advance their education or as credit recovery and allows DCS students to participate in DGSD sports and other activities. Students will have an introduction to online coursework and receive instruction in the Blackboard class format (prior to the start of their coursework) so anyone is capable of taking cyber classes. The first day of school is August 27th for both online students and NHHS and DGHS students that are taking classes in the Cyber School lab.
Gerstle River School had the honor of starting off the DGSD 2009-2010 school year on August 11th with Mr. Curran returning to Gerstle River. We look forward to a good school year filled with learning and fun. Additionally, last school ended with the graduation of Zoya Kuzmin.
New Horizons High School has continued to serve as a more “school within a school” alternative education program. The staff of the school has begun curricular preparation for the returning students and we will have a number of new enrollees for the current year. The school was designed to give students another option to complete their education while getting the help they need in a more individualized classroom.
Whether you are a New Horizon Mustang, a Cyber School Explorer, or a Gerstle River Ram we look forward to providing you the education to make your future dreams possible.
