Monthly Newsletter~June Issue

2021-2022 School Year

Dear Delaney Families,


It's hard to believe that it's already June! I want to thank you for your ongoing support throughout the year. I am truly grateful to be a part of such a wonderful school community.


I'd like to thank you for your input in the placement process. Teachers and staff members continue to work on the important task of putting together classes where all students can find academic and social success. Placement information will be sent out in August.


Our kindergarten registration page is up and running. Please click here for information on kindergarten registration. You may contact me with any questions or concerns.


I hope that you and your families have a wonderful summer vacation. Please feel free to reach out to me over the summer with any questions.


Sincerely,

Miss Kathleen Maloney

Classroom supply lists will be posted early in the summer to give families plenty of time to purchase school materials.

Welcome to the Staff

Please join me in welcoming Mrs. Laura Dietz to the WPS staff! Mrs. Dietz will be our new Assistant Principal for the Delaney and Roderick Schools. We look forward to working with her and would like to wish Mr. Robert Worth all the best in his new position as Principal in Foxboro. He will be missed!

Thank You!

Thank you to our wonderful PTO for their ongoing support! The Staff Appreciation Week events were absolutely incredible and very much appreciated. The playground now has new toys and games for the students to use, and additional equipment will be installed over the summer!

Thank you to WEST for their continued support. Our students and staff continue to benefit from the generous grants awarded each year!

Thank you to Tavern In the Square for the catered lunch provided to the Delaney School staff in honor of Staff Appreciation Week.

Continuing to Learn Over the Summer

Our WPS scholars have learned many things this year and there are some additional resources your children will have access to while they are enjoying the summer with your family to maintain their learning momentum. Reading daily (even for just 15 minutes a day), along with practicing math skills during the summer months, can help to prevent regression to start the 2022-2023 school year with confidence. WPS families will receive more information via email from Dr. Beauchaine by June 10th about the Summer Reading and Math Learning Activities available on our website.
