  Form 6 Completion - Mia

This form took me a lot longer than I expected. When first started Form 6 I had trouble confronting different things such as projects or even communicating with my supervisor or classmates. But, I feel like I’ve grown so much since then and have had many wins since being on this form.


Some of the wins I had were increasing my confront and communication. I used to avoid things that I felt uncomfortable with or didn’t want to do. I learned that this would only drag things out and that once you decide to do something it isn’t as bad (or bad at all) as you think it is.


Another thing I also realized was that I couldn’t wait for my goals to happen, but had to take the initiative and put in the work to accomplish them. For a while, I felt like I was stuck in a victim viewpoint and expected others to solve my problems for me. I realized that at the end of the day I was the only one that could make the decision to do something and that if I didn't change my outlook or attitude about things everything would stay the same.

For example, with my studies, I realized I had to set in self-discipline for myself to finish my courses by working outside of class and having more intention.


Putting in the work to meet my goals made me feel happier and helped me make more progress on my program.


My favorite part of this form was the reading program. It was amazing to learn about so many different viewpoints and to live the lives of the characters through the pages. I enjoyed reading all the books because after each one I felt I learned so much that I didn’t know before. It also became easier to read as I read more and my vocabulary increased.  


Now I’m going to say some thank yous. Thank you Quinn and Emily for the form exam and review. After doing the form exam I feel very much ready for Form 7. Also thank you, Alyssa, Todd, and Robin for helping me get through this form. Thank you Melissa for being the best FA and helping me with anything. Last I want to thank my family for supporting me the whole way.


You’re all amazing and have helped me in so many ways.

 
I’m also really excited to start Form 7 and to learn even more.

Debate Team at the State Championships

"We were the only school in our district to qualify in Lincoln-Douglas style debate and one of only two in Public Forum style. This means we had our entire team qualify for the second year in a row. 

"At States, which are held at Western Oregon University every year,  Remy and Joseph won a round but they did not qualify for elimination rounds. Rachel and I won 3 out of 4 of our rounds each and qualified for the quarterfinal rounds. Delphian was the only school to qualify more than a single entry (since Rachel and I both did) to final rounds in Lincoln-Douglas. 

"Summing up, this year we went from a team of 2 to a team of 4. For the second year in a row, every team member qualified for the championships, something that few other schools have done before. After this tournament I moved up in the rankings for the state of Oregon to the top 5 in Lincoln-Douglas debate. 

"All in all, we had tremendous success!"

-Cayden, Debate Team Captain

Groundbreaking Ceremony for the Serafina Early Learning Center

We recently broke ground on our early learning center which will open in 2023. It will be named Serafina Early Learning Center in honor of author and beloved Delphian Alumna Melissa McPhail, who passed away in February of this year. Serafina is the childhood home of one of Melissa's heroes in her fantasy series, A Pattern of Shadow & Light.

Members of Melissa's family, whose generous donations made the building possible, attended the groundbreaking accompanied by Delphian faculty and many of the school’s youngest students.

The 1400 square-foot center will serve as a warm and supportive environment for children to explore, create, grow, learn, and thrive. It will have the capacity to accommodate up to twenty-five children, focusing on ages two through four. This will provide a unique opportunity for young students to start developing their abilities, creativity and knowledge.
