Week 4

Thanks for supporting our team!
Many students will benefit from the scholarships!  
"Home computers are being called up on to perform many new functions, including the consumption of homework formerly eaten by the dog!"



Friendly reminder! Please be sure to pick up a Visitor badge and sign in at the Delaney or Annex office before entering the school.

Now that we have reached the end of September, it is important to remember that K-3 students need to walk independently to their classrooms. Parents accompanying children may stop in the office if support is needed, but please refrain from walking your child to the classroom door.

When planning appointments for your child(ren) please try to avoid the end of day, especially when they have a special. When they leave early from a once per week class, they miss content that is not easily made up.
Students that are being  picked up in office before end of school day due to unforeseen circumstances...
Please plan to pick up your student at their respective office!

Grades 2 and 3  at the Janelli Annex Office (Mrs. Dumas)

  Wrentham Public Schools-Bus Change Requests
 Procedure Update-September 2015
Bus changes will not be approved for any other reason than childcare purposes. 
Effective immediately, bus change requests will be made through the administrative assistants in both Delaney and Roderick Schools.
A request for a change from the student’s regularly assigned bus must be made by email to the following:

Delaney School:
Roderick School:
The request will be forwarded to the district bus coordinator who will determine if there is enough seating on the new bus.
The district bus coordinator will notify the office of approval and an email will be sent to parents/guardians and classroom teacher to confirm the change.
Please expect the process to take a few days from the initial email request.
Contacting the building principal will no longer be necessary.

This fall the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation is teaming up with Cradles to Crayons for our annual winter coat drive.  We are looking to collect gently used and new winter coats for infants, toddlers and children as Cradles to Crayons expect over 17,000 requests for coats this winter alone.   The boxes will be in the Delaney school lobbies.







What is Fountas and Pinnell Testing?
     The Fountas And Pinnell Baseline Assessment Assessment System is one-on-one (student to teacher) assessing to determine students' independent and instructional reading levels. This allows teachers to plan differentiated instruction that best meets the needs of students. Student progress can be documented across a school year and across grade levels.

Thank you for reading and viewing.

Delaney Principal
