Deltona High School For the parents, students, & community supporters of Deltona High School.


Dear Wolves’ Families, Happy New Year and welcome to the second semester. Teachers and students have been very focused on their academic courses where teachers are giving many opportunities for the students to meet the standards in all academic areas. Testing is right around the corner. Students will take a variety of tests this year to show proficiency in a course or to meet graduation requirements. Please review the school website and stay abreast of all testing information. We will keep you informed closer to time regarding detailed testing information. Please encourage your students to focus on the outstanding teaching and learning that is taking place to prepare them for these exams. Encourage your students to take advantage of the many tutoring opportunities we have before school, during lunch, and after school. We also will continue to offer several EOC camps for additional assistance in these areas. Stay tuned. Please continue to watch the calendar of events and our DHS website ( to stay informed of the many activities taking place on the Deltona campus.

Did you know: • Improved school grade from a C to a B (largest improvement in all Volusia County High Schools) • Improved our graduation rate with a 7.2% increase (largest increase of all Volusia County High Schools) • Recognized as Five Star School for the 2017-2018 school year. • Recognized as “The School of Excellence” by the DeLand Chamber of Commerce/Orange City Alliance. • And many other school and student recognitions! We are truly “on our way to an A”! • I hope to see you at our remaining SAC meetings on February 19th, March 12th, or April 16th @ 6:00 in the Learning Commons. Until next time……………Go Wolves!

3 THE LEARNING COMMONS @ DELTONA HIGH SCHOOL “A place with a space for every learner.”


We recently added JSTOR to our collection of digital resources. This digital library provides our students access to scholarly content, (i.e. Peer reviewed articles, pamphlets, etc.). This collection is usually reserved for Colleges and Universities. Students needing to access authoritative information for research-based projects now have one more viable resource. Logging into JSTOR will be automatic when you are accessing it on campus. However, you will need log in information to access it off campus. See Mrs. O’Brien. We are currently working on having it added to the Student VPortal. Racing to Read!

Daytona International Speedway offers our Volusia County School students an opportunity to attend pre-selected races during Speed Week with the “Racing to Read” program. Last year 3,219 students participated. This year we want to help the Speedway meet and/or exceed the 4,000 participating student mark. To be eligible students must read 500 or more pages before January 25, 2019. Reading needs to be verified by a Race to Read Literacy agent, (e.g. Reading, English, or Media Specialist). Selected teachers will distribute the program materials in their respective classes or you can see Mrs. O’Brien if you’re interested. As an incentive, students are invited to join the Paws2Read Book Club every Friday during the month of January. Join our Book Chats, share what you’re reading; check out more books; win some books; join the race. Learning Commons is now OPEN during Lunch

If you’re looking for a quiet space to read and study; a space to work on group projects; finish your assignments; gather your thoughts for the afternoon or catch up with friends…then consider visiting the Learning Commons. Every Wolf has a space in this place. Be you, but be considerate. Noise level needs to be appropriate; food and drinks are not permitted without permission from administration or approved by a supervising teacher. Most spaces are open, but at times reserved for clubs or scheduled activities. Want to learn more about the Learning Commons, visit our website: Seniors, consider visiting the Learning Commons to work on scholarship or college applications, essays, or use the time to do the research. Study for the ACT or the SAT in a designated space. See you in the Commons! FOR MORE INFORMATION Visit our Website at Thanks, Follow us on Twitter @Wolvescommons Mrs. O’Brien, Media Teacher
