We are excited to announce that we are going to be doing afternoon activity signups a bit differently this year. In years past, students in Elementary School and higher were assigned to their school electives classes individually by school personnel. This year, however, we have the option of parents doing these class signups with their children online! This electives method will be overall more efficient, as well as allow our families to be more involved in these important decisions. This is a chance for parents to discuss with their child what their goals are and help lead them to success. Online signups will need to be completed prior to school starting, and classes will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
To sign up, go to your Delphi parent portal and select “Class Signup” on the sidebar. Then select the category of classes you and your child have agreed upon. You have up to five selections for each day of the week. Please include any notes necessary to clarify your choices.

Throughout the coming term, students will be exploring new ways they can create, whether it is a remote control car, or a blinking light system, or an animate art piece or miniature video game.

The Student Services and Student Council programs consist of giving students positions of responsibility in the school, seeing that the student successfully masters the challenges of that position, and then promoting them to new, expanded levels of responsibility. Just as with a “real-world” job, a student’s performance in these positions will be evaluated by the products they create. Students may start out in an entry-level position of basic cleaning or organizing, get promoted to a more impacting role in administration or peer leadership, and then continue on to running entire school events, and projects impacting the community. The Student Services and Student Council Programs are designed to help students cultivate responsibility, personal integrity and leadership skills necessary for their lifelong success.
