The Kindergarten class had a special treat on March 18. After winning the Caught Being Good challenge for the 3rd quarter, the students had a special visit from a magician. They were entertained and awed by his magical talents. Thanks to our Magic Man, Pattrick, for the great entertainment!

The first grade students celebrated their 101st day at school on Febraury 4, with a 101 Dalmatians theme. Students and teachers dressed up and celebrated the day with many fun activities.
The Kindergarten classes had a great day celebrating Grinch Day on Friday, December 4. The students had some fun while still working hard on their learning standards.
The fourth grade students at Delta Elementary took a step back in time on Friday. With teachers and many students in costume, they spent the day learning about the life and times of pioneers as they made Johnnycakes, sang songs, played games, and made a mini log cabin. A special guest from Sauder's Village also visited to reenact how teaching and learning took place in a one room school house. What a great day of fun and learning!
The Delta Fire Department came to visit the kindergarten students for Fire Safety Week. This year's theme is, "Hear the Beep, Where you Sleep!" The firefighters taught the students about finding a family meeting place and checking to see that we have smoke detectors in our homes. Thank you to Fire Fighter Jeremy, Fire Fighter Kim, and Fire Fighter Josh for teaching us all about fire safety!
Third graders from Delta Elementary joined area schools on September 23, 2015 for Ag Fest at the Fulton County Fairgrounds. During Ag Fest, students visited several different stations throughout the day. These stations provided hands-on learning opportunities that correlated with state curriculum standards in math, science, social studies, and language arts. Fulton Soil and Water Conservation District hosted the event, and many area sponsors and volunteers made this fun day of learning possible.
