    DeltonSchool provides meaningful learning experiences that will enable all students to attain at their highest possible levels and all staff members to grow professionally and personally in an atmosphere of mutual trust and respect. The staff, students, their families and the community will work collaboratively as we pursue the mission of excellent results from each member of our school family.

    The DeltonWay... It startswith us!

    I believe I am an important part of the Delton Community. I believe in being kind, caring and respectful to everyone.

    I believe I have the power to make a difference.

    I believe I am responsible for my own learning, and will respect the learning of others.

    I believe that it’s okay to take a chance, and learn from it.

    I believe I will be successful.

    I believe in us.

Principal's Message

Welcome to Delton Elementary School, home of the Dragons! I hope you find our website informative and useful. Delton School, in my opinion, is truly an outstanding school. We are never satisfied and we are constantly seeking ways to improve for the benefit of our students, our staff, our school district and our community. We are committed to the education of our students and working with them to achieve at their highest possible levels.

At Delton School, we are all about the success of our students.  We believe that it will take all of us (parents, staff, community), to be successful in providing our students with the best education possible. We pride ourselves in offering a top notch academic program following the Alberta Program of Studies.  This combined with our focus on literacy provides our students with amazing experiences.  

Our staff is truly amazing.  In addition to their regular assignments, staff members volunteer to run clubs and activities before school, at lunch time and after school. They constantly go above and beyond the call of duty to assist students and meet all individual needs. Our staff has helped us to create a climate dedicated to learning, living and laughing!

Parents, I urge you, to be involved with your child. We are here and willing to assist in anyway possible, however, we need to have open lines of communication and work together to ensure a successful school experience for your children. School can pose some challenges but with us working together, we will certainly overcome them.

Students get ready for exciting, fun and rewarding time at our school.  I encourage you to get involved with activities, and focus on your education and leave a legacy at our school.  We are very interested in your results, not your excuses! Shoot for the stars!  We believe that you are capable.

Again, welcome to Delton Elementary School. We are so proud that you are or considering being a part of our family. With us working together with optimism, enthusiasm and a sense of belonging as well as encouraging each other, we will take the education of our children to the next level. I look forward to getting to know you and developing a quality relationship that will foster success for all. 

Christine Simmons
