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

Volume 23 Issue 2 PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE Dear Parents and Students, Can you believe it? We are already beginning the second nine weeks. Now that the hurricanes are behind us, students should be settling into their new classes and working hard to learn the challenging material and standards in their courses. Please encourage your son/daughter to take advantage of all tutoring available before school, during lunch, and after school from their teachers to make sure they keep up with the academic rigorous material in each of their classes. In addition, every teacher has office hours M-Th during lunch for assistance. 99 Report cards were distributed to your son/daughter on Friday, October 27th. Please take the time to look over the report card and encourage your son or daughter to take advantage of all opportunities for academic success. Please feel free to contact Ms. Farnstrom, school counseling department @ #44397 to schedule a parent conference with the teachers. 99 Did you know we have a “Think Tank” during the school day? This program was started last year and proved to be very successful. Any student who received a grade of “F” in a course needed for graduation will be placed into this study hall course instead of their elective class until credit is earned in that class.

99 Come join SAC (School Advisory Council). We are looking for parents who can meet once per month @ 6:00 pm in the Media Center. Our next SAC meeting is November 21st. I hope to see you there. 99 I want to thank each of you for being supportive of Deltona High School. As you know we are trying to increase our academic focus, school spirit and culture at Deltona High School. Please get involved and join the Wolves’ Family by participating in school events and programs. This is OUR community. As a team, with all our stakeholders working together, we will make DHS the best school in Volusia County! I appreciate all your support for Deltona High students, faculty and school community.  As always, if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to contact me. Together we can make sure that students reach their highest potential.

DHS Wolf Pack Learning Commons “Where the learning continues…” We are transitioning from a Media Center to a Learning Commons. A Learning Commons embraces the concept of an open area where, “All students come together to read, study; do homework; work on projects—individually or collectively; to collaborate; explore; meet; and participate in a number of school based activities. It is also the place where all education providers and facilitators gather to provide instruction; develop their expertise; and share their collective knowledge to enhance student learning. It is a common area where learning is both physical and virtual—an environment that supports 21st Century skills and the various literacies including technology integration. All who visit the Learning Commons should find comfort and feel safe.” In the 2016-2017 Academic year over 31, 000 visits were recorded. The majority of these visits occurred during lunch time. We encourage students to relax; meet with their friends; catch up on things; meet up with clubs and reset for the rest of their academic, fun filled day. This year we hope to exceed, not only in the number of visits, but also in the type of activities students can engage in. IMPORTANT UPDATE You should know that every student is required to use their personal log on to access computers on campus and a slightly different logon (email) to access their VPortal from home. Please see below. USERNAME: ALPHA CODE (1abcd) PASSWORD: 8 DIGIT BIRTHDATE or MMDDYYYY (09232001) ON CAMPUS: When you’re on campus you will sign in as yourself and then access VPortal via the Volusia County website: OFF CAMPUS: To access your VPortal off campus: 1. Go to 2. Locate and click on VPortal 3. It will prompt you to log in using the email option: Your alpha code followed by the LIFE LONG READERS The Paws2Read Book Club is in its third year, but this year we battle like a TEAM. Our book club still features the Florida Teens Read titles, but we will do more than just turn the pages. We will read closer; have deeper discussions about what we read; and work on developing higher level questions in preparation for battle against other schools. We are 20 strong and looking forward to competing as Wolves. We also participate in a number of literacy based activities throughout the year. This club meets on Tuesdays during lunch. If you’ve missed the opportunity to join a club and enjoy reading; reading with others; or unraveling a book…then come see Mrs. O’Brien by October 27th. INNOVATION AND INSPIRATION The Makerspace is also embarking on its third year at Deltona. We sort of work like a club, but not quite. On any given day students can play a game of chess; draw or write on the white or chalk board; color in a book; participate in a group game and more. On other days, students are invited to participate in STEM based learning in a stress-free environment. On club-like days, we work in groups of two or more. You may work with circuitry, small robotics, gamification, coding, or 3D printing to complete a project or meet an objective. Lunch time is a perfect time to have fun learning and in the process, develop 21st Century skills. Activities are offered every other Wednesday. Activities are posted, announced, and shared on our Learning Commons website: A Parent invitation to a “Spook-TECH-ular” Night (No tricks—just treats and technology to getting better grades) This is an invitation for parents to meet with members of the Technology team to discuss resources like, (e.g. Gradebook, Canvas, VPortal, Edmodo, Office 365, school website, etc.). This “Spook-TECH-ular,” session is scheduled to take place right after the first grading period—an opportunity for parents to ask and learn about these tools: 1) How they are used in the classroom; and 2) How students are expected to use them at home. Please plan to attend on Thursday, October 26th from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm in our Learning Commons (Media Center). Snacks and light refreshments will be served. For more information go to: spook-tech-ular-parents.html


Greetings from the counselor’s corner! It has surely been an eventful couple of months with the beginning of school starting off with a W.O.W. of a first day to welcome our freshman and a smooth start for the rest of our Wolves. Our department has also welcomed a new counselor that is Mrs. Christie Wilson and she oversees the cohort 2021 class. We are so happy to have her here in the Den and look forward to many productive years of collaborative work. Then it happened….. Hurricane Irma It has slightly thrown our game off course but alas we prevail and are back into the swing of things! Throughout the year so far, we have welcomed six colleges and universities to our campus to meet with students who are interested in attending. Additionally, UCF will be visiting on October 9th and Daytona State has set up monthly meeting opportunities to speak with students about various programs, assist students in completing the application process, show them the financial aid site, and inform them of scholarship opportunities. Students can sign up for college and university visits in the school counseling office. The counseling office has a number of events also coming up that are listed below: October 19th: SENIORS!! Get working on those college applications right away at College Application Day! This is a full day event where seniors will work on their college & university applications with counselors present to assist them with information, look over application essays, or submitting their academic self-report. Sign up NOW to reserve your spot! October 25th for 5-7:30pm in the Media Center: FAFSA night. Students and parents meet with financial aid advisors from Daytona State College to work on their Free Application for Federal Student Aid. This application is for federal financial aid so the student does not have to be attending DSC to attend this event. Their staff is just kind enough to come assist our families’. November 2nd: The Armed Forces Vocational Aptitude Battery or ASVAB will be administered here on campus in the media center. This assessment is meant to gauge a student’s natural aptitude in specific content areas. This battery is also used for specific career placement for students who plan on joining the Armed Forces. Please sign up at the School Counseling desk. Our senior students have met with Mrs. Estelhomme to go over their academic transcript to make sure that they are on track to graduate or make any adjustments to ensure that they have all they need to walk across the stage in June. Additionally, she has been in Economics classes having those same seniors complete their Bright Futures applications and stressing to them the importance of completing scholarship applications. Lastly, I want to address that the school counseling department here at DHS is committed to assisting our student with both academic as well as personal growth. We are able to assist students who are having challenges with transitioning into high school, peer relationships, coping with feelings of anxiety and depression. Additionally, we gladly provide support to those that just need a listening ear. We are proud and happy to serve our Wolves and their families’.

4 ROUTINES FOR STUDYING ESTABLISH A SOLID HOME-STUDY ROUTINE WITH YOUR STUDENT Encouraging, supporting, and participating in this vital activity will improve your student’s attitude and performance at school and support a work ethic that endures for a lifetime. 1. SET A SCHEDULE: Establish a regular timeslot for this important daily activity. Seek your child’s agreement and commitment to reserve this time each day for homework and study. Encourage this habit. In many ways, it’s his/her job and should become routine. Your support and involvement in your student’s home-study effort makes a huge difference in the high school experience. 2. CREATE THE ENVIRONMENT: Students can be easily distracted. Teach them to create an atmosphere conducive for concentration. Having a defined study area works with some students but not all. The most important requirements are time, focus, and your support. Minimizing social media access, loud music, and other detractors will improve effectiveness and retention. 3. OBSERVE AND ENGAGE: Psychologists suggest that it takes three weeks to break or establish a habit. Now that the new school year has begun, commit three weeks to this routine with your student. Make it become a habit for both of you. Your daily assistance and attitude toward school have a huge impact on your child’s success.


Parents requesting early check-out of their student can complete a Pre-Arranged check-out pass (located in the front office) and return it to the Attendance Office a few days before the appointment. This alleviates any wait time for you when you come to pick up your student. If you call or come in, please understand that we need some time to get your student for you. Please allow 30 minutes. This will allow the school the opportunity to look up the student’s schedule and send for them to meet you at the Attendance Office. Parents/guardians, it is important that we check the driver’s license of anyone picking up your student early from school. This will be done to ensure the safety and well-being of your child.


I. Purpose  The purpose of this policy is to ensure compliance with federal reporting requirements for the USDA Child Nutrition Program, and to provide oversight and accountability for the collection of outstanding student meal balances.  The intent of this policy is to establish uniform meal account procedures throughout Deltona High . The provisions of this policy pertain to full pay and reduced-priced school lunch meals only. While the USDA Child Nutrition Program does not require that a full pay student or reduced-priced student be served a meal without payment, Deltona High has established this policy as a courtesy to students without lunch money. NOTE: This policy is school administration-based and may vary between schools. II. Policy  A student will receive a reimbursable meal. The student’s account will be charged accordingly.  Parents/Guardians are responsible for meal payment to School Way Café. Notices of deficit balances will be sent to parents/guardians at regular intervals during the school year.  Students/Parents/Guardians may pay for meals in advance via cash or with a check payable to Deltona High SWC or you can pay,. Please note this service does have a minimal fee. Funds should be maintained in accounts to minimize the possibility that a child may be without meal money on any given day. Any remaining funds for a student at the end of the school year will be carried over to the next school year.  School Way Café uses computerized point of sale/cash register systems that maintain records of all monies deposited and spent for each student and said records are available by setting up an account at .  No ala carte charges or purchased items are permitted for students with a negative balance.  If a student is without meal money on a consistent basis, the administration will investigate the situation more closely and take further action as needed. If financial hardship exists, parents and families are encouraged to apply for free or reduced-price meal benefits for their child by visiting: Pages/Free-and-Reduced-Meal-Applications.aspx to apply for meal benefits.  Currently, breakfast is complimentary to all students enrolled in Volusia County Schools; however, this service may be discontinued at any time.


Students in the NEW Food and Agricultural Sciences Academy are excited to participate in fall events with the Deltona Sr. FFA Chapter. Students have had leadership opportunities and community service opportunities already this school year. Students are gearing up for co-curricular environmental science projects as they learn more about the agricultural industries of Florida and the impact of global agriculture. •

ATTENDANCE EVERY SCHOOL DAY COUNTS An estimated 5 million to 7.5 million U.S. students miss nearly a month of school each year. Research shows that missing 10 percent of school days, or about 18 days in most school districts, negatively affects a student’s academic performance. That’s just two days a month and that’s known as chronic absence. Chronic absence is a leading indicator that a student will drop out of high school. When students improve their attendance rates, they improve their school performance. Good attendance is an important life skill. Parents play a key role in school attendance. Let your student know it is the expectation. Establish home-study routines and sleep habits that make attendance a non-issue. Encourage participation in school clubs, organizations, and sports. Monitor his/her progress and talk about it. Students who are engaged at home and at school rarely miss a day.


Our AVID juniors and seniors are trying to go on an overnight Grand College Tours trip in November to south Florida. The students will visit 7 different colleges in a two day period, they include; USF (Tampa & St. Pete), University of Tampa, Eckerd College, FGCU, University of Miami, FIU, FAU and Lynn University. Any amount you can donate would greatly be appreciated, to offset some cost for these students.




September 27, 2017 Dear Parent/Guardian: The School District of Volusia County policy is to provide information to you regarding your child’s teacher and paraprofessional qualifications in a timely manner upon request. You have the right to request the following information: • Whether the teacher has met state licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas for which the teacher provides instruction. • Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status by which the state qualifications of licensing criteria have been waived. • The baccalaureate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree. • Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications. Please be assured that the School District of Volusia County is dedicated to providing our students with a quality education. The information regarding the qualifications of your child’s teacher and/or the classroom paraprofessional may be obtained by contacting the principal of the school. Sincerely, James T. Russell Superintendent of Schools
