• The Diversity Club - where EVERYONE is welcome!!!!!!!

     Embrace Diversity?

    Believe in Equality?

    Love to get involved?

    Consider joining the Diversity Club. We are Del Val's GSA (gay-straight alliance), a small club that wants to make a big statement! We need students who are ready to support one another and willing to help out in a big way. If you think all people deserve to be treated equally and that differences are what make us unique individuals then the Diversity Club is for you. Send an email to Mrs. Cartwright at  lisacartwright@dvrhs.k12.nj.us  and you will be put on the email list. Hope to see you at a meeting!

    This week’s Rainbow Room will meet in our regular spot, have a quick snack, check-in, and then a FUN, art-filled, field trip… all the way … across the street!
    We’ll have a private tour of The Arts & Cultural Council of Bucks County’s Fall Salon Show at Freeman Hall - where we’ll meet with 3 of the featured artists, see 140 paintings, drawings, prints, photographs, relief sculptures, textiles, mixed media works, and more.
    All the art is created by regional practicing artists—some experienced professional artists, some who are just putting their toe in the creative waters, and some in between.
    🖤🤎❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
