Welcome to Delta Secondary School

 

Our first term is now over and report cards were posted in December.  Congratulations to all students who achieved Principals List standing or Honor Roll and G Club status through your hard work and dedication to your studies.  Copies of all of the lists are posted in the office.

For those students who experienced some difficulty in courses this past term now is the time to make changes and develop a plan for improvement.  Attending all classes on time, keeping up with assignments, and asking for extra help when you need it are all steps in the right direction.  Make a commitment now to put yourself in a stronger academic position at the end of the next term.  Your teachers, counselors and administrators are available to help you get extra support if you need it this term.

Although we had a late start to the school year Delta Secondary staff and students quickly got back into school life in and out of the classroom.  Some of the highlights for the fall were:
