  • Report Card Distribution Delayed

    Parents and Students:

    As you may be aware, the MMS Portal has not been working properly this week. The technical issues are beyond our internal scope, and are being addressed by MMS.

    Because of this, grades are unable to be entered into MMS. We are hoping this will be resolved over the weekend and have changed the deadline for faculty grades due to Monday at 3 p.m. However, without knowing when MMS will be operational, this deadline may change.

    Due to the uncertainty of MMS, report cards will NOT be distributed on Jan. 26. As soon as MMS is repaired, and we are positive of the date for report card distribution, you will be notified.

    We apologize for any inconvenience.

  • An Important Message from Dr. Thiec and the Board of Directors

    December 13, 2016

    Dear Parents,

    As written in the book of Ecclesiastes, "To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under Heaven." After twenty-five wonderful years as Principal of Delone Catholic, I am announcing my retirement. Leaving dedicated and faith-filled faculty, hard-working and determined students, supportive and caring parents, brings a lump to my throat and tears to my eyes.

    In February 2016, I informed the Diocese of Harrisburg that the school year of 2016-2017 would be my last year serving as Principal. The purpose of this advanced notice was to provide the optimal time for the search, for interviews, for dialogue to find the most capable person to continue the tradition that is Delone Catholic High School.

    Delone Catholic has made so much progress in this quarter of a century. With input of faculty and willingness to provide expanded academic subjects, we increased the number of AP courses. We also introduced the Algebra I program for Grade 8 students in our deanery. This move led to the ability to expand both the science and math curricula with the addition of Statistics at the AP and Honors level, Biology II, Chemistry II, Physics II and Anatomy and Physiology both Honors and Academic. Economics was added as a required course along with the re-configuration of the computer courses. The virtual high school courses came into existence last year and have potential for great growth and challenge.

    Delone Catholic added the positions of Spiritual Life Direction, Instructional Support Coordinator/Teacher and Director of Enrollment and Marketing. These positions have strengthened our Catholic identity, our ability to assist students with learning difficulties to gain success and confidence in academics and our ability to spread the good news which is Delone Catholic High School.

    There are so many memories - the first day of school in 1992, the first of everything throughout that school year (athletic contests, band competitions, forensics competitions, honor roll presentations during what was A1 assembly period, Masses in the old gym, concerts, dramatic performances, and musicals). I thank Mr. Yealy for giving me the opportunity my first year to participate in the school play, "Fiddler On the Roof." The bond with some of those cast members has continued throughout the years.

    The memories have grown each and every year as I rejoiced in the accomplishments of the students. Those accomplishments continued into future education and beyond. These students have excelled as they matriculated to the choice of profession. They continued to exemplify our motto, "Be Doers of the Word."

    Now as I face the last time for everything, the realization is difficult. I know it is the last time I will gather with the football team at the end zone. It will be the last time I serve with the coach in the presentation of a District medal. It will be the last Algebra class. It will be the last Baccalaureate and Graduation. So many "lasts" will occur.

    What I can look forward to is time with the grandchildren to attend those grandparent days at school, concerts, plays, athletic contests, and sacraments (First Communion and Confirmation). Education is and will always be a part of my life. I will wait for that phone call to come and substitute here or at the two local deanery schools.

    I thank all of you for your support of Delone Catholic High School and me. You will always be in my prayers and in my heart.

    Sincerely,

    Maureen C. Thiec, Ed.D.
    Principal

     

     


    From the Board of Directors

    Dear Parents, Alumni and Friends,

    Dr. Thiec has announced her retirement at the conclusion of the 2016-17 school year after 25 years of service to Delone Catholic High School. Through her leadership, we have strengthened Delone Catholic with an exceptional Catholic identity which is exemplified in our academically strong, socially responsible students; our outstanding faculty and staff; fiscal health and prosperity; major capital improvements; and a strategic plan to guide our tradition of excellence.

    Change is inevitable, and while transition brings uncertainties, the Board of Directors is committed to seeking a new leader of Delone Catholic High School that will continue our success, provide fresh ideas and new enthusiasm, and challenge us to grow in new ways.
    The process is one that is undertaken in collaboration with the Diocese of Harrisburg.
    While the initial search is primarily a Diocesan initiative, local representatives will play an important role in the process, with the final decision to be made by Bishop Gainer.

    The Board of Directors thanks Dr. Thiec for her dedication and love of Delone Catholic High School. Her commitment to Delone Catholic has fostered an atmosphere where parents have been strongly supported as the primary educators of their children, outstanding faculty and staff members have called students to their very best in academics and in extra-curricular activities, and our graduates have gone on to serve God and country, as active
    "Doers of the Word."

    Information regarding a celebration will be provided later in the school year. Please join in
    thanking Dr. Thiec for her time-honored dedication to Delone Catholic High School.

    Sincerely,

    Douglas A. Little, PhD, C'81
    President
    Board of Directors
