Art Awards!

Ms. Marjorie Belizaire, our beloved Art Teacher, does it again. Delphi Students receive regional level recognition in the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. Scholastic Art & Writing Awards is celebrating 90 years! Visit their website at www.artandwriting.org.

Several Delphi Students were chosen to have their art on exhibit at the Milton Library as well. Here is the article: http://02186.mytownmatters.com/?p=28747.

Bubbles!

The Children’s Discovery Museum of Acton brought their traveling Science Workshop to Delphi this January. The Beginners students participated in a fun-filled, hands-on program to learn more about bubbles!

Puppets!

The Gerwick Puppets visited in February and performed “The Adventures of Thornton W. Burgess.” This was adapted from stories of Massachusetts author, Thornton W. Burgess, to help children learn about the habits and habitats of some common New England animals. The Form 1 and 2 classes then participated in a puppet-making workshop!

Lower School students were enchanted by the touching tales.

Class to Class – Around the World!

This year’s Geography Fair was spectacular! The classrooms were decorated from top to bottom, representing ten different nations. The costumes were amazing, the student presentations were very professional and the food was out of this world! Thank you to all the parents who helped.

Lower School Science Fair!

Cole Saphire from Ms. Veronica’s Class proudly displays his volcanic model of Olympus Mons. Do you know what planet he is on?

On Friday, January 18th, the Lower School students presented their knowledge and hard work in Science. Some students had individual projects ranging from volcanoes to lemon acid batteries, some worked in teams on the different life cycles, and the preschoolers all worked together on a big “Sink or Float?” project. The projects were amazing and the students were very knowledgable. Well done, Lower School!

Swoosh!

Rahel Demissie holds her breath while Ashley Hancock makes a free-throw with perfect form against the girls at Thatcher!

It’s basketball season and the girls opened with a win against Thatcher Montessori! Our girls team only has five players. That’s right, that means they are on the court the whole time with no substitutions!

Both the boys and the girls have a full schedule this year and we will keep you posted on their Dragon ferocity!

Form Completions!

This year has become one of our most productive school years ever. The number of Form completions is staggering. Our Standards team, Katie Campbell and Chelsey Reckis, work tirelessly to make sure that each student walks out of an examination with full understanding and the ability to use what they have learned. No short cuts, no holes – just competence!

“Morale is boosted to high highs by accomplishment. In fact, it can be demonstrated that production is the basis of morale.”

Parent Workshop Success!

Attendees of this year’s Study Technology Workshop proudly display their certificates.

On Saturday, November 3rd, parents attended the Annual Study Technology Workshop. This full day, interactive event brought over 35 parents more in touch with the educational methods developed by L. Ron Hubbard used here at Delphi. It also gave them tools they can use at home to help with raising their children.

Here are a few success stories from this workshop:

“I thought the workshop was definitely ‘eye-opening.’ I find myself already using the tools with my daughter!”

“I think we can get so carried away with the hectic train of life, we sometimes forget to take a step back to reflect on the parenting alignment with school – and what study technology entails and how we can achieve more using its tools and techniques.”

“I got a deeper understanding of the teaching methods used at Delphi and a fresh and sometimes new look at what it means and takes to successfully educate children. This once again reinforced our feeling that moving our son from the public school to Delphi was one of the best decisions that we could have made!”

“I left Delphi that afternoon with a renewed sense of purpose and determination. A feeling I’m sure most of us shared that day. My advice to any parent who has not had the experience of the technology training is to certainly invest the time to attend the next session.”

A Kick Off Season – Go Dragons!

Mr. C and the ferocious Dragons.

Another milestone in Delphi Boston athletics. Once again, Marco Cenafils, Delphi parent and Physical Education teacher (also know as “Mr. C”), spearheads a competitive sports team; last winter it was basketball and this fall it was soccer.

Jared Hancock gets tough with an opponent from the Epiphany School.

The Dragons have not suited up and competed in soccer since 1996, but this year students from Forms 3 & 4 braved several tough matches against more veteran teams. Though most of their opponents were larger and on an average much older, our fearless Dragons came out fighting and kicked off a great first season!

Congratulations Mr. C and the Delphi Dragons!

Form Completions!

When a student completes a Form here at Delphi, he or she has accomplished the requirements for their level, they are ready to move on to the next. We verify that accomplishment through a “Form Exam.” This is not a random multiple choice test that a student can pass with a grade better than a “D.” This is a sit-down-with-the-student process to find out what they have truly mastered, allowing them to demonstrate their knowledge and their skill. We verify that each requirement is achieved 100% and that the student can USE what he has learned.

“Learning bears fruit when it is applied. Wisdom, of course, can be pursued for its own sake: there is even a kind of beauty in it. But, truth told, one never really knows if he is wise or not until he sees the results of trying to apply it.”

– L. Ron Hubbard, The Way to Happiness

The Feast!

On Friday, November 16th, parents and children from the Lower School joined in our annual Thanksgiving Feast.

We would like to thank all the parents who contributed to the amazing amount of delicious food. A special thank you goes out to the parents that helped with the set up and serving of the food. The children, the staff and all the parents who attended truly enjoyed themselves.
