I hope the first full week of school was terrific for everyone! We have just finished 9 days of learning and I am happy to report that the students and teachers are all settling in to the new year.
It was wonderful to see so many parents attending open house on Thursday evening. This event always shows how vital parents are to the educational success of their children. I appreciate all who came to hear about the many areas of learning your children will be experiencing. Thank you for coming and being important partners in the learning process.

The first fall fundraiser has begun!
Events of the Week
Dr. Cameron held a convocation for all students in both Delaney and Roderick Schools. He shared a power point of photographs that introduced himself to the students and gave great examples of how our Core Values should look from the student perspective. Ask your child how loud it was when we all yelled "Wrentham"!
Dr. Cameron was also busy reading to all Kindergarten and Grade 1 classes this week! He will be visiting Pre-K, Grade 2, and Grade 3 over the next two weeks.
Thank you to Glenn Gillespie for installing a fence near the bus circle that keeps the children safe as they walk!
Drop off Reminder
Children may not be dropped off prior to 8:10 when school personnel appears. There is no supervision for your child prior to that time. Teachers are not in their rooms due to meetings, collaboration, and office chores. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
Welcome back families of the Delaney School! Here are a few topics for this week’s blog:
Please know that your school nurses are monitoring the much publicized Enterovirus. Please refer to the CDC website @ www.cdc.gov for the latest information regarding this virus.
Simple measures to keep your child healthy include:
· Encourage proper hand washing after bathroom use and before eating- consider sending in a hand wipe in your child’s lunch box or back pack so hands can be wiped before lunch
· If your child has asthma, contact your child’s doctor for guidance since children with asthma are at higher risk for respiratory illnesses
· Have your child get adequate rest and encourage a healthy diet
Food Allergy Awareness:
If your child is in an allergy aware classroom, please help us keep our fellow students safe by sending in only those packaged foods with proper ingredient labels. If the room is a nut safe room, please do not send in foods that are labeled “processed in a facility that processes or manufactures peanut, tree nuts or this food may contain traces of peanuts or tree nuts.” These foods seem harmless but do put our students with food allergies at risk of accidental exposure.
The school staff greatly appreciates your cooperation!
Thank you for reading and viewing!
Have a great weekend.
