Learn to Swim
Program Starts Soon
Delta will again offer the Learn to Swim program this summer. For details, see this flyer.
Sophomores Mason Bechdolt and Rebekah Box have broken school records in track this spring.
Box broke the Delta school record in the 100 hurdles at the Hoosier Heritage Conference meet on Tuesday, May 7 at Mt. Vernon High School. Her time was 16.22 seconds.
Bechdolt broke the Delta school record and Noblesville Invitational record for the 100-meter dash with a time of 10.88 seconds on Tuesday, April 23. Making the time even more impressive was the fact he ran in cool rainy conditions.
Delta, Yorktown Unite
The girls' tennis teams from Delta and Yorktown put the rivalry aside on Tuesday, April 30 for their second annual #SmashCancer 2.0 benefit match.
The two schools combined to sell 902 multi-colored T-shirts to recognize the many varieties of cancer. All proceeds from the shirts sales go to the American Cancer Society Relay for Life program.
Cancer survivors hit out the honorary first serves. Each player honored a cancer victim or survivor with a special handmade sign. There was a white balloon release, more shirt sales, multi-colored bracelet sales, and concessions.
The two teams then met on the court in a Hoosier Heritage Conference match, with Delta gaining a 5-0 shutout victory. SmashCancer began last year with the Delta-Yorktown match and has now expanded to more than a dozen matches statewide.

Delta HS Celebrates
"A" School Designation
Dear Delta High School Community and Friends,
We all know that Delta High School is a great school. When school grades were released late in the fall of 2012, Indiana Department of Education confirmed that fact. Delta High School received an “A” grade. In Indiana, a high school’s grade is based on the percentage of students passing the Algebra I and English 10 End-of-Course Assessments, graduation rate, and the percentage of students who have gained college dual credit, passed advanced placement exams, participated in an inter-baccalaureate program, or received an industrial certification. High schools also receive bonus points for improvement in scores on the End-of-Course Assessment compared to previous ISTEP+ testing. Delta High School excelled in all of these areas.
Delta High School is a great school due in large part to the faculty and staff. Delta High School teachers have come in early and stayed late to provide extra help and tutoring for students. Delta High School teachers have worked together, on a voluntary basis, to provide one another with additional resources and training. It is through the dedication and devotion of the teaching staff that Delta High School continues to achieve at an “A” level.
Delta High School is a great school due to our student body. Students from Delta High School study bio-medical and other subjects at the Muncie Area Career Center. Other students at Delta High School study for college credit in many different classes offered at school. Still other students have worked hard to improve their scores on standardized tests. Success at the high school level is a result of several factors, but students are the key.
On Friday, January 4, 2013, the faculty and staff wore blue and gold t-shirts proclaiming Delta High School’s grade. Delta High School represents an outstanding community. I hope that community will share in the spotlight of that achievement.
On behalf of the administration of Delta High School, I would like to offer my congratulations to all of our faculty, staff, and students on this great achievement.

Conway Commits to
Indiana State for Baseball
Senior Austin Conway recently signed his national letter of intent to play baseball at Indiana State University in Terre Haute, Ind.
Austin made his announcement during a ceremony on Monday, Dec. 10 along with his father, brother, and Delta baseball coach Terry Summers.
Indiana State competed in the NCAA Tournament last season after winning the Missouri Valley Conference title. The Sycamores currently boast the No. 2 pro prospect among all college baseball players in pitcher Sean Mannea.
Conway led Delta in earned run average in each of the past two seasons and will be a top pitcher for the Eagles this spring.
We are very happy to have signed Austin," said Indiana State head coach Rick Heller. "He's a bulldog on the mound with a high-80s fastball and a very good slider."
