Dear Delaney families,
It has been another busy week here although we are not keen on the weather and there was a full moon! Students are still working hard, such as grade 3 children presenting their Massachusetts history VIP projects and Kindergarten children being assessed in reading with Fountas and Pinnell. I had a chance to visit a preschool class and sing "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" with everyone. In the spirit of our Core Value of continuous growth and learning, I will be attending a conference tomorrow on the topic of early literacy. Here are some of the other highlights:
This student was mindful and respectful of other children's point of view.
This class used mindful behavior in the hallway and exhibited kindness toward one another.
Grade 3 VIP
Grade 3 Math tessellating multiplication mosaics based on the art of Paul Klee. See if you can find the multiplication facts!

For Grades 3, 4, 5, and 6
Flame, a group of talented musicians from upstate New York who happen to have disabilities, has been capturing the world’s attention for a decade. In 2003, Lexington, an agency in Fulton County, NY that supports people with developmental disabilities, held a talent show from which Flame was born. The band has been changing the world through their music ever since. Flame has performed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the House of Blues, in Cleveland, Ohio; had a feature story in People magazine; and a segment on ABC TV’s Good Morning America. They have brought their message of inspiration to people and performances all over the world – Flame has played to audiences from Athens, Greece to all four corners of the continental United States.
With a generous grant from WEST we are happy to announce that Flame will be performing for Wrentham Elementary students this June for our 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade.
