OUR ANNUAL (2nd and 3rd grade) 

New date : Wednesday March 23rd
No School the 24th- Professional Development Day

Thank you for your understanding while we have made every attempt to choose a date that would work for most families. This took a great deal of coordination between planners, school administration and the central office. We have many outside organizations that use rooms and all of these details led to a new date posting that took longer than some would have preferred. 
The Glitter Ball will be a fantastic event for all despite the interference of "mother nature"!

Please support Superintendent, Dr. Cameron as he dances his way to (hopefully) winning 2016 Dancing with the Stars and helping us achieve our goal for a new state-of-the-art playground that will be accessible for all our children!

What is School Committee?

The Wrentham School Committee is responsible for setting Policies for the District and approving the District Budget on an annual basis.  The School Committee is responsible for hiring and supervising the Superintendent of the Wrentham Public Schools.  In private business terms, the School Committee is the Board of Directors of the District and the day-to-day operations of the District are operated by the Superintendent and his Administrative team.  The Committee consists of 5 Members, each elected for staggered 3 year terms in the annual April Town elections.  

Next Meeting:  Tuesday March 8th 
Open to the Public! 

Safety for All at Delaney Morning Drop Off!

We are working really hard on the morning drop off procedures, and need everyone’s cooperation.  The safety of our students, staff and visitors is of primary importance.  We need to follow several procedures to keep it safe:

      Cones are placed along the sidewalk at both the Delaney and Annex ends of the building. Please pull up to the cones to let your children out and then proceed with caution back into the driving lane. Do not let children out at any other location unless you are parking.

Please make sure your children have all the clothing needed for the playground. They need boots when there is snow or mud. They need snow-pants when there is snow on the ground. 
Mittens and hats are necessary in the cold weather!
