Welcome to Delview Secondary School

DELVIEW'S 24TH ANNUAL THANKS FOR GIVING OCTOBER 13!

Delview Secondary’s ​24th Annual Thanks For Giving is on October ​13​th! On Oct. ​13​th from 5-​8​pm, student teams will be canvassing North Delta to collect non-perishable food items.  Every year, we collect over 15,000 food items for the Surrey Food Bank and Deltassist (​two years ago we set a record at over 22,000 cans). This is the largest one-night food drive in B.C.! Please help us out and gather food items to donate that night. We will try to pick them up from you in the North Delta neighbourhood or you can bring them to Delview Secondary School. Thanks for your support!

 

FEE WEEK

Fee week will be September 26 - September 30.  Students are asked to pay their fees at the office before and after school and at lunch.  Not during class time.  Fees may be paid by cash or cheques payable to Delview Secondary School.  Fees are available for viewing on Parent Connect.  Once in Parent Connect, click the fee tab at the top of the page.  Fees will be collected by grades as follows:

Monday - Grade 8

Tuesday - Grade 9

Wednesday - Grade 10

Thursday - Grade 11

Friday - Grade 12


 

Walk to School Collaboration Wednesdays

Frustrated by the long student drop off lines at the front of Delview? Feeling as though your teenager should be getting to school without your help? Thinking that your kids and all kids, in general, could do with more exercise and the outdoors?

Well…the staff of Delview agree (and research supports our view)! As such, we are bringing about a new initiative this year: WALK (or bike, rollerblade, or skateboard) TO SCHOOL COLLABORATIVE WEDNESDAYS!

Beginning with our first Collaboration Day on Wed. Sept. 21, the STUDENT DROP OFF PARKWAY IN FRONT OF THE SCHOOL WILL BE CLOSED from 8:00-9:45am. Please encourage your kids to plan to walk, scoot, or skate to school with their friends.

Adjacent parking lots will also be unavailable during this time! Please help us help your kids experience the value of independence, exercise, and community spirit by LEAVING YOUR CAR PARKED AT HOME!

Canadian Guidelines Recommend That......

For health benefits, youth aged 12 - 17 years should minimize the time they spend being sedentary each day.  This may be achieved by:

- Limiting recreational screen time to no more than 2 hours per day; lower levels are associated with addional health benefits.

- Limiting sedentary (motorized) transport, extended sitting and time spent indoors throughout the day.

 

One recommendation is that "instead of driving or taking the bus, teens can walk or bike to school with a group of friends from the neighbourhood."

 

 

Ciao Delview Travellers! As you know there is an amazing EF school trip to Italy planned for Spring Break 2017 (only 6 months away!).  On this GRAND TOUR of ITALY, we will visit Milan, Venice, Florence, Assisi, Pompeii and Rome.  Please note, Delview will have its next trip in 2019.  There is still a few spots left for Delview students currently attending grades 10-12.  Don't wait...contact Ms. Li-Hindson, Ms. Couwenberghs, or Mr. Prideaux the organizers  for this trip to find out more about this great opportunity.

To preview the trip, go to www.eftours.ca/educational-tour/grand-tour-italy">http://www.eftours.ca/educational-tour/grand-tour-italy

STUDENT SCHEDULES

Student Schedules are now available on Parent/Student Connect.  Student schedules will not be handed out on the first day of school.  Students should be coming to school with a copy of their schedule.  Because counsellors are working diligently balancing schedules there may be changes to schedules so please check on the weekend for your most up-to-date schedule.
