It is with great excitement that I want to welcome you to the 2016-17 school year at Delshire Elementary. This year promises to be filled with excitement, learning and continued growth. Our theme for the year is “The Delshire Learner.”  This means that we will be looking at the key factors that assure success for our students and making sure that we are doing everything possible to fulfill our Vision for Delshire Elementary. 

Our emphasis on “The Delshire Learner” will build on work that we did last year with Corwin Press and Mrs. Tanny McGregor along with our Positive Behavior Supports work. We will be helping students to explore the behavioral expectations and learner qualities that lead to being a successful student. In terms of Behavioral Expectations, we will continue to emphasis the three “Rs” of Delshire- Respectful, Responsible, and Ready. Teachers will be helping students to understand these factors and how they create a positive learning culture within the classroom and the larger Delshire Community. In relation to learning, we will be introducing students to Learner Qualities this year: Motivated, Self-Aware, and Persistent. 

Please take the time, this year, to become an active participant in your child’s education and The Delshire Community. It has been my honor to serve as Principal these past two years and I look forward to serving you and the Delshire Community during the upcoming year. I am committed to providing your child a quality education, therefore I will often be in classrooms or out in the building with students and teachers supporting learning. This means that you will often not find me in the office. If there is ever anything that I can do for you, please don’t hesitate to contact me. 

Thank you for entrusting your child to us and thank you for being a part of the Delshire Family.

Let’s work together to do amazing things.

-Mr. Winters
