Delphi From the Parent’s Perspective


Delphi Boston Update

Happy first day of Autumn!

Delphi Academy of Boston welcomed our students back for in-person classes just a few weeks ago and we’ve been so thankful to have them back. School has resumed and the fun, educational and creative activities that we teach have commenced!

Here is to a continued exciting and safe school year:


Back To School Fun

We are so happy to see our students back in class as we follow safety precations for Covid-19. There are just so many reasons why in-person learning works. Let’s all do our part to make sure we can continue to operate safely.

 

Wrapping up Summer and Getting Prepared For the 2020-2021 School Year

Summer is coming to an end and navigating the process of returning to school this year will be more different than any other for parents and educators alike. Learning was slightly halted during the 2019-2020 school year after in-person classes were no longer a possibility. Because of this many parents worry about their kids having fallen behind too much to catch up this Fall. With this in mind, we’ve come up with tips for wrapping up the Summer and transitioning into the 2020-2021 school year as smoothly as possible:

 

  • Ask your child about their feelings (both excitement and concerns) regarding going back to school. Regardless of your child’s age this is an important and helpful conversation to have. Ask them about the coming school year, what they are expecting, what they might be fearful of, what they are excited about, and what goals they have for the Fall. 
  • FInd out and let your child know what his schedule will be like this school year. Visit your school’s website and find out what the schedule will look like this coming year. What is different about this year than other years? Is there anything specific you and your family should prepare for regarding the schedule? 
  • Go back-to-school shopping. This is a great way to boost excitement about the school year and help your child feel like they are more in control over the coming year and how it will turn out. Control, especially during this time, over education can help make you and your child’s lives easier this coming year.
    Have a virtual or socially distanced back to school party! Get your kids’ closest friends together for a virtual or socially distanced back to school party. This will help amp up the excitement and get everyone ready and thrilled for school!
  • Get a personally refillable water bottle. Not only is this a sanitary measure, but it’s great for the environment and your child’s health. Find a bottle your child loves and wants to carry around and drink from. 
  • Purchase a mask your child loves. Masks in school are new for all of us, but we know it’s important to help your kids become as comfortable with it as possible. Find a reusable mask that your child likes wearing. You might consider purchasing a neck gaiter or clear face shield so their friends and teachers can see their smiles!

This school year will be more different than any other, but we are going about it like any new adventure we might experience. At Delphi Boston, we are applying all safety precautions to ensure in-person classes are possible, safe and fun. Our staff are excited to see new and old faces this Fall and to help our students adjust back into life at Delphi Academy of Boston. Here’s to new experiences and adventures, and we look forward to seeing you soon! 


Delphi Boston’s Fall Program

Here at Delphi Academy of Boston we are so excited to walk back into the classrooms this Fall to find that they have become a whir of creative and educational activities: Each student busily working, individually or as a team, taking charge of their education at the most basic levels. 

The way students are taught at Delphi Academy of Boston is what makes our school truly unique. Our strong focus on reading, writing and mathematics gets children off to a great start. It is obvious to see in each classroom the fostering of self-confidence and independence.  We strive to ensure each child reaches their full potential by taking charge of their education and making it their own. 

There is something truly magical about seeing a child excited about going to school and learning. With Delphi Academy of Boston, your kids loving school is no longer just a hope for the future, but a sure reality for the present. 

There is still space available for your child this Fall. Daily tours are available by appointment. Call into our admissions office to secure a tour and a spot for your child in our program today! We look forward to hearing from you and having you in our program this Fall!

Summer Fun In Boston For Families!

Here at Delphi Boston we are dearly missing our students, but realize that the show must go on! Although we aren’t running our summer camp this year, it doesn’t mean that summer will be lacking those fun and productive days we all love. With this in mind, we have done some research and come up with a few activities that you can fill your days with this summer if you live in the Boston area! 

 

    1. Strawberry picking: Boston is brimming with countless great places to take the kids for a fun strawberry picking afternoon. Some of our personal favorite places include: Smolak Farms, Parlee Farms, Cider Hill Farm, Marini Farm, and Sunshine Farm.

    2. Head to the Drive-In Theater: Some locations around Boston are beginning to open up while following safety guidelines. We’ve collected a few of our top choices for all of you! Make sure to check out their websites to find out what movies are playing and when: Wellfleet Drive-In Theater, Milford Drive-In, Mendon Twin Drive-In and Mansfield Drive-In. 

    3. Play with Legos: If you already have Legos, get them out for your kids to use. If not, don’t stress it! Head to your local Walmart or toy store and find a few sets your kids are excited to build. Lego building is both fun and creative!

    4. Walk to a local park/playground: Pack up some snacks, sunscreen and water and head out with the kids for a fun day in the sun at the park!

    5. Start a garden: Speaking of playing outside… This is one of our favorite activities for having fun and learning at the same time!  You can do this simply by choosing a location and building a garden box or by digging out a space to plant.

Here at Delphi Boston, we hope your Summer is filled with fun and growth as a family! We can’t wait to see all of you here next Fall. As a friendly reminder, we have space available in our Fall Program at Delphi Boston and are currently enrolling new students for next September.

Fun Ways to Keep Your Kids Learning This Summer!

Summer break is here which means beautiful weather, family trips and this familiar question from your kids: “I’m bored, what should I do?” Delphi Boston is here to help you out with a few tips on keeping your kids on task and productive this summer. Not only will your kids get to enjoy the weather and fun activities, but they’ll learn more and get caught up on basic school work. When it comes to time to roll into the school year in September it will be a total breeze for the whole family! 

  1. Improving their reading skills is a must this Summer! Put aside 20-30 minutes a day to read aloud with your younger kids and get your older kids to read pleasure books. Go on weekly trips to the local library/browse the vast collection of books on Amazon/Audible. Research a bit online about local reading challenges for the summer to get your kids excited about reading! 
  2. Teach your kids about saving and making money. You can get quite creative with this one and involve many different subjects at a time in order to teach about basic saving habits, work ethic and math. You can either create a paid chore list or help them come up with a simple business plan of creating and selling something online/to your neighbors. The sky’s the limit! 
  3. Build a garden, grow some edible crops and teach your kids how to cook. This is a super fun and involved activity for the whole family. Teach your kids a bit about construction and DIY activities, growing and maintaining plants through basic science and then show them how to cook different recipes! We guarantee your kids will love the time spent outside learning with you! 
  4. Put on plays. This is an activity we love and it’s a creative way to teach your kids about creative writing, grammar and public speaking. Go crazy on this one through story ideas, costume design and fun sets created through recycling! 
  5. Teach your kids about basic planning and research by giving them the assignment of planning and organizing a future family trip. This is not only a great way to teach them organizational skills, but it’ll be a way for them to become more involved in your group as a family. 

Here at Delphi Boston we hope your Summer is filled with learning and fun. We will miss you dearly without our annual Summer Camp, but can’t wait to see you again this Fall! Good luck on your endeavors in teaching your kids something new this Summer break.


All About Summer 2020:

Summer 2020 is approaching and with it comes the beautiful weather we dream about all year! It’s been a difficult and strange past few months and it feels good to look forward to brighter days. 

With this in mind, we wanted to reach out to our Delphi Boston community with an update on this Summer and thank you for all of your support throughout these unsure months. 

This was a tough decision, but we have decided not to hold our annual summer camp this year. We will miss all of you dearly through these next few months but look forward to having you back next Fall. We hope to see updates on how you and your families are doing through the Summer months and what activities are keeping you busy and productive!

There are still spots open for our Fall program filled with exciting educational opportunities for your child where they will not only learn more, but find a new love for learning itself. 

Enjoy the Summer! We will see you soon.
