Student Council to Host Squire Picnic for Fourth and Fifth Graders
Delone Catholic High School Student Council will host a Squire Picnic for students in fourth and fifth grades on Sunday, May 4 from 1-4 p.m. on J.T. Flaherty Field. There will be games, hamburgers and hot dogs and prizes. 
Student Council feels that this is a great opportunity for area grade schoolers to meet one another and become familiar with the Delone Catholic community. This event is open to any fourth or fifth grader - students do not have to attend a Catholic School to participate. Students are encouraged to bring their friends. There is no cost to attend, but students must pre-register by April 25. Registration forms can be found here or picked up in the Main Office. 

Delone Catholic Kicks Off "The Last One Percent" Campaign; Learn How You Can Help
Through mid-February 2014, Delone’s Diamond Decade Initiative had received overwhelming support in gifts and pledges both large and modest totaling more than $2.8 million. The unexpected discovery of additional asbestos and the decision to use more durable materials for the hallway floors added approximately $50,000 to the total cost of the project. At this time Delone Catholic needs to raise approximately $23,000, or less than one percent of the total cost, to pay off the remainder of Phase II. We can reach this goal with your help in any amount, even if it is one dollar at a time.  Read more...

Delone Catholic is Latex-free!

Because of the increasing number of students who have allergic reactions to latex, through contact and through the air, Delone Catholic will use only products that are free from latex. We need the help of all parents and students to make sure that no latex balloon enters this school for birthday celebrations, for athletic senior recognition, for school dances or for any decoration throughout the school. For one of our students, this could be a life-threatening situation so everyone’s help is needed and appreciated.


Delone Catholic Practices Safety for those with Nut Allergies!

Items containing peanuts and other tree nuts may be brought to school for individual lunches, but we ask that after eating foods containing nuts, you thoroughly wash your hands and any surfaces you have come in contact with. When supplying food for group consumption, please refrain from bringing items containing nuts unless you also supply an alternative. Thank you for keeping the safety of all of our students in mind!
