Report Card Friday

Report Card Day

I always sent this quotation with the first report card because it can be a day of many emotions for both students and parents.


“ As we read the school reports on our children, we realize a sense of relief that can rise to delight that---thank heaven----nobody is reporting in this fashion on us.“       
J.B. Priestley



The Delaney staff and I congratulate you for making a difference by being sure your children are here everyday, ready to learn, collaborating with peers, and accepting challenges both academic and social.

Here are some highlights of the week…

Veteran's Day Week

Delaney students have been working really hard this week in their classrooms. I am sure they enjoyed their small break on Tuesday for Veteran’s Day.  We welcomed two new administrative assistants to our school this week. Ms. Best is in the Delaney Main office and Mrs. Dumas is in the Delaney Annex office. They are working hard to learn about our school and to get to know your children.

Here are some of the week’s highlights:

Coat Drive Continues
Thank you for your support!  



As a connection to our mission statement (Opportunities will be provided for students to make connections between their actions and the world around them.), students at the Wrentham Public Schools will be joining the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation and participating in a community service program.  Beginning on Monday, November 10th, the Wrentham Public Schools will be assisting Cradles to Crayons in gathering items for local families.  Students at the Wrentham Public Schools will be collecting new or like-new winter coats.  Families who would like to donate to our community service project can send in coats between Monday, November 10th and Friday, November 21st.  Cardboard bins, provided by the Patriots, will be located in the foyer of our school for collections.
