Once again I am privileged to congratulate the entire Delevan community on being awarded another prestigious honor for academic achievement Ė becoming a California Distinguished School, the highest acknowledgement a school can receive in our state! Knowing the culture of our school as I do, it comes as no surprise that this recognition has been earned. We all are aware of the many school qualities that put Delevan above and beyond the rest.
Delevan students continue to be dedicated to reaching their maximum potential in all that they do. They take learning seriously by consistently completing assignments in class and at home in an outstanding manner. They participate in lesson discussion with enthusiasm and seek to expand their understanding to new levels. They work together as learning teams that help each other reach beyond the average. They never fail to treat each other with respect and kindness.
Our Delevan teachers are among the best in leading students to mastery of grade level skills and development of a range of abilities beyond the norm. They find creative methods to make learning motivating and meaningful. They push students to challenge themselves academically, artistically, athletically, and socially. They themselves are learners that constantly incorporate innovative ideas into instruction.
All Delevan staff members make certain that children are able to work daily in a supportive, organized, clean, and healthy environment.
Delevan families contribute to this setting of excellence. We see them organize many enriching activities that increase our ability to provide service to children. Their presence on campus and in classrooms allows us to develop a deeper sense of school community, as well. The PTA and Councils are important groups that collaborate in establishing our strong focus on academic achievement.
Everyone has played a critical role in make Delevan a California Distinguished School that prides itself in reaching higher levels of success each year. Letís celebrate this spirit of excellence and continue to believe in the people and exceptional learning opportunities that are the Delevan tradition.
Go, Koalas! Always remember to distinguish yourself above and beyond the rest!
