November 2017

It was amazing to see all of the creative costumes during our Halloween Parade!  I hope November is as exciting as last month.  Our Progress Reports will go home with students on Friday the 3rd.  The DSC Fun Fair is on Saturday, November 4th.  Bring the whole family to the Courtyard for 10:00 am to 12:00 pm for fun, games and prizes! 

Monday to Friday from 3:20 pm to 5:00 pm during the week of November 6th to 10th we will have our Progress Report Conferences.  These are valuable opportunities for families to discuss with teachers how their child is succeeding at school.  Please note that during this week there will be no Extracurricular Activities and no After School Tutoring classes.  On Friday, November 10th at 2:00 pm, there will be a parent workshop discussing why technology is important at Delia and beyond.  On Thursday, November 30th we will have our Operation Santa Clause Casual Dress Day.  More information about his special day will be sent to families.  I hope everyone has a great month and enjoy the traditionally perfect November weather!

I graduated from Dalhousie University with a B.Sc. in Agriculture (Hons).  After five years working in the golf course management field, I attended The University of Maine and completed my Bachelor of Education in anticipation of looking to work overseas.  In 2003 I started working at Delia School of Canada.  I have been a homeroom teacher in grades 3, 5 and 6 before becoming Head Teacher in 2014.  Currently I am a candidate in the MBA Education (International) programme at Keele University.
