AFS in need of host families

AFS_LogoThe AFS Club at Delavan-Darien High School is looking for host families for the upcoming 2015-16 school year.

AFS volunteer coordinator Robert Dahl said about 32 international students are looking to come study in and experience United States culture. The only way they can land in Wisconsin is to have a host sponsor.

If families decide to host a student before July 31, the student will arrive in the U.S. in mid August. If a student is chosen before Aug. 15, they will arrive in early September.

DDHS currently has no families volunteering to be a host home for AFS, Dahl said.

If your family is interested in hosting a student, call or email Dahl for more information: 262-728-9585 or rkdahl@sbcglobal.net.

Golfers highest Honorable Mention Team Academic All-State

The Delavan-Darien High School varsity boys golf team was awarded the highest Team Academic All-State Honorable Mention recently for its success in the classroom.

The squad — comprised of seniors Alex Grover, Nick Ward, Andrew Pierson, Julius Kursatz and junior Nathan Johnson — finished just out of the top three placings, according to the Golf Coaches Association of Wisconsin (GCAW).

It was the fourth year of the awards, which were established to recognize high school golf teams with the highest ‘team’ grade point averages (‘team’ is defined as the five designated golfers on the roster for the spring 2015 WIAA regional tournament).

Teams had to receive a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.25 to qualify as an honorable mention. The Comets had a team GPA of 3.69. DDHS was recognized as the highest honorable mention in Division 1.

The three teams with the highest cumulative team GPA in each division (D1- D2-D3) were recognized with gold, silver, or bronze medals for each student-athlete, and their schools received a certificate to note this accomplishment.

Last year, DDHS golfers also received an honorable mention.

Summary of teams being honored (in order of finish) for the Spring 2015 includes:

Parents/guardians of enrolling students should bring the following documents on Enrollment Day:

  • Child’s Original Birth Certificate or Passport
  • Proof of Residency (i.e. current utility or cable bill, lease agreement, mortgage bill)
  • Parent/Guardian Photo ID
  • Child’s Immunization Records (provide within 30 days from start of school)
  • Proof of Guardianship/Parentage (i.e. child’s Birth Certificate with parent name, legal papers, etc.)
  • High School Transcript, if applicable

Enrolling students must be age 4 or older on Sept. 1, 2015, to be eligible for 4-year-old kindergarten (preschool), or 5 years old by Sept. 1, to be eligible for kindergarten. Students should attend with their parents/guardians.

Registration Day

Registration Day is scheduled for 7:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. – 6:30 p.m., Monday, Aug. 10, at Delavan-Darien High School (150 Cummings St., Delavan). Registration is for parents and students who were enrolled in Delavan-Darien schools in 2014-15 and are continuing in 2015-16.

At the events, parents and students can learn about the new Infinite Campus online enrollment/registration and payment system the district is rolling out for the upcoming school year.

The new additions to the system will allow for faster registration and give parents the opportunity to make payments to the district online with a credit or debit card (school fees, gym uniforms, etc.). Parents and students can already use Infinite Campus to keep in contact with teachers, check on student academic progress and attendance, review schedules and much more.

Enrollment and Registration Days are Aug. 4 & Aug. 10

EnrollmentRegistrationWe are excited to offer some new tools to help get your child or children enrolled and registered in our schools.

We are working hard to have our online enrollment and registration system up over summer break. The system may not be quite ready by our Enrollment and Registration days (August 4 and August 10, respectively), but we are trying.

Once operational, the systems will include opportunities for online registration and enrollment, online payment of school fees, and more offerings in the Infinite Campus parent portal (where you can check on your student’s grades and attendance).

As we roll out the system, we ask that parents attend our upcoming Enrollment Day (for any students new or returning to the district), and our Registration Day (for all students who will be attending Delavan-Darien Schools in 2015-16).

 

August 4th – Enrollment Day: Enrollment of new and withdrawn students only. Parents should attend.

  • Time: 7:30 AM – 12:30 PM and 3:30 PM – 6:30 PM
  • Location: DDHS

August 10th – Registration Day: Registration for continuing students for the 2015-16 school year. Parents should attend. If a family missed our earlier Enrollment Day, they can come in on Aug. 10 and we will accommodate the family.

  • Time: 7:30 AM – 12:30 PM and 3:30 PM – 6:30 PM
  • Location: DDHS
  • *Enrollment day is not for registering. If you cannot make it Aug. 10, please schedule a registration appointment with your school by calling 728-2642.
