A Principal’s Winter Wisdom
A Principal’s Winter Wisdom
It has been a terrific fall season at Dulaney!
The accolades and awards for students are too many
to list, but here are a few highlights.
Students are doing great things every day—
1,049 students earned honor roll! This is a
significant achievement and a testament to the
exceptional quality of the teachers and students of
In addition, fall sports teams won 6
Regional Championships (Boys Cross Country,
Boy’s Golf, Girl’s Golf, JV Volleyball, Varsity
Volleyball, and Varsity Field Hockey). Let’s not
forget Boy’s Cross Country State Finalists, State
Cross Country Champion Isabelle Griffith, and
State Champion Volleyball!!
Our Robotics teams have all scored well and
won events in the area.
The “It’s Academic” Team was fantastic in
their win of the first match on WJZ.
The music programs have been recognized
as ‘Best in Parade’ for the Marching Lions.
We had 59 of 250 students selected for the
‘All BCPS Honors Program’ featuring Band,
Orchestra and Chorus.
Our service clubs have been very busy
serving the community. The Key Club organized
Dulaney participation in the Save-A-Limb Run.
SGO is spearheading a massive Canned Food Drive
and there are many other service projects by the
various groups of Dulaney students who model
citizenship every day.
Keep shining; you make us proud!!
I would like to extend a big THANK YOU
to all parents and friends of Dulaney who joined us
in celebrating American Education Week. As
evidenced in the paragraph above, there are
wonderful educational opportunities every day at
Dulaney. You don’t have to wait until next year’s
American Education Week to come by and see our
teachers and students at work. You are always
Registration for the 2014-15 school year is
just around the corner. Due to all BCPS high
schools shifting to the 8-credit per year model,
students will have more opportunities to select
classes of interest to them. This will provide
students with broader educational experiences and
better prepare them for college and careers.
Dulaney will be organized into 4 classes each day
on an alternating day schedule. (Called the 4 period
A/B schedule.) The longer periods will support
incorporating into lessons more higher-order
thinking, and opportunities for application and
synthesis of learning for students. If you have any
questions or concerns about our new schedule,
please let me know.
Happy Holidays!
We are one-All In! GO Dulaney Lions!

Happy Holidays from

The Library Needs You!
Free time? Like to volunteer? The Library
is looking for Parent Volunteers to help during
Jan 17 – Second marking period ends
Jan 20 – Schools Closed (MLK Day)
Jan 21 – Schools Closed (Prof. Development Day)
Jan 25 – SAT
Parents, if your students are struggling with
any aspect of their academics, please don’t wait!
Encourage them to speak with a teacher or a
guidance counselor. Encourage them to go to the
school library and sign up for peer tutoring!! It’s
free! It’s convenient!! And they can learn from a
student’s perspective, which may be the help they
need. If need be, and funds allow, consider
professional tutoring. Everyone needs it at some
time in their lives. Don’t let it drive a wedge
between you. Don’t let falling grades discourage
or depress them. These are rather impressionable
times in your students’ lives. Help them help
themselves and their futures…one day at a time.
How Very Sweet the Tune!!!
Robotic Excellence

best of luck!!

SGO Wishes for our Troops
SGO Electronics Donation Drive
The SGO has been asking students of all
homerooms at Dulaney to sign a card or make a card
that will show others how much we appreciate their
services and sacrifices. SGO has garnered about
100 cards so far.
Show your support for our troops and this
Country! It won’t cost you a penny; but think of
what their service may cost them!
Help to put a smile on the face of a Hero this
holiday season! Help to keep their spirits strong!
Isn’t it worth it?
Have you thought about all of the electronic
devices sitting around your home or in your car that
are just collecting dust? Are you upgrading your
electronics this holiday season? Consider donating
your gently used electronics to the Electronics
Drive we are hosting on behalf of Mr. Merani’s
Church. Donations can be dropped off at Mr.
Merani’s classroom 109. Act fast!! The collection

A Picture’s Worth What??
If you know a hero, be sure to thank them
for their service and sacrifices from all of us here at
Dulaney High School!
Thanks and Happy Holidays Everyone!!
SGO Says Thanks
The SGO would like to thank you all for
giving your time to help out with Dulaney’s 2013
Homecoming! It would not have been a successful
and enjoyable homecoming for the students if it
were not for all of the school staff and parent
volunteers! We really appreciate all that you have
done for us to make it special!!
It is said that a picture is worth a thousand
words. But in this case, it is worth One Hundred
Dollars. It’s the Dulaney High Photo Program.
There has been a Photography Contest
underway at the Towson Delly North. Eighteen
Finalist Photographs – nine black and white photos
and nine color photos – have been on display on the
wall of the delicatessen and patrons were able to
vote for the Top Awards. One artist from each
category was awarded the prize of One Hundred
Dollars. Congratulations to the winners!!
The competition closed this fall on
November 29th, but you still have time to check
them out. The artwork will be on display until
December 15th. The delicatessen is located in the
small strip mall in front of Best Buy in Lutherville.
We’ll run the competition again in Spring.
Homelessness Hits Home
Did you remember to donate to the SGO
food drive? How about your local shelter or Church
food pantry? Remember, many grocery stores have
dented cans on sale for only $0.59. How much
change do you have in your couch cushions? I
