Volume 25 Issue 3 PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE
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 boot camps for additional assistance in these areas. Please continue to watch the calendar of events and our DHS website (dhswolves.com) to stay informed of the many activities taking place on the Deltona campus. Did you know: • We Improved our school grade from a B to a B+ (Highest scoring high school in all Volusia County). We are the highest ranked high school regarding school grade. We are only 3% points from an A. This is the Deltona Way.
Improved our graduation rate again this past year with a 4.7% increase. This is nearly a 12% increase in two years. We are proud to say our graduation rate is 88% which is higher than both district and state average! • Recognized by Volusia County Schools as a school of Excellence in Attendance where we receive the highest recognition for all grading periods. • 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 18th, March 10th or April 21st @ 6:00 in the Learning Commons. We would love your support! Until next time……………Go Wolves!, Carolyn Carbonell Principal

SCHOOL COUNSELING NEWS
Greetings from the School Counseling Department and welcome to the second semester! January begins with an opportunity for Juniors & Seniors to register for the NON-college reported test administration of the ACT. This test administration can be used for obtaining a concordant score used to meet the FSA ELA and Algebra 1 EOC test requirements for a standard high school diploma. Eligible students received letters in December and must respond by January 8th if they wish to take the test on February 25th. Also, in January, counselors will be reviewing 1st semester grades and meeting with at-risk students to prepare a plan for success in the 2nd semester. During the months of February and March, seniors should be finalizing plans for graduation and post-high school pursuits as well as completing financial aid applications (FAFSA & FFAA) and applying for scholarships. College-bound Juniors are encouraged to take the standard ACT and/or SAT (required for college admissions and scholarships) as they continue their college search. Underclassmen will be selecting courses for the 2020-2021 school year and are encouraged to challenge themselves to select rigorous classes. Counselors have open office hours mornings before school and daily during student lunch to assist students in selecting courses. Counselors are also available by appointment throughout the school day. With post-secondary planning in mind, counselors strongly advise students to meet with college representatives visiting our campus and to sign up for on-campus college presentations being offered this Spring. Representatives are here to answer any questions as well as highlight their many academic programs from vocational certifications to Bachelor’s degrees. Visit the Counseling Office to learn more about these opportunities. As always, your DHS counselors are here to assist and support you. Go Wolves! Ms. Kara Kauffman, Director of Counseling

6 THE LEARNING COMMONS @ DELTONA HIGH SCHOOL “Every Wolf deserves a HUB.”
We continue to do the work that is needed to make the Learning Commons a central location for all to explore and enjoy. Expect the Learning Commons to be a HUB that provides our students with a diversified collection of books and an environment that embraces the many ways we live and learn. In the next couple of months our fiction collection will be rearranged and displayed differently on our shelves. Instead of looking for and/or finding books alphabetically by the author’s last name, students can quickly go to the genre and/or subject of interest, (i.e. Action and Adventure, Drama, Historical Fiction, Horror, etc.). The goal is to get students to read what they like, love, and enjoy reading with as few barriers, as possible.
