Information for the Families of Incoming Kindergarten Students

(2022-2023 School Year)

 
Dear Incoming Kindergarten Families,
 
On behalf of the School Committee, administration, faculty, and staff, welcome to the Wrentham Public Schools! Our mission is to work with you to help all of our students become reflective, life-long learners. We look forward to getting to know you and your child(ren). 
 
We want to make the transition to kindergarten as easy as possible. To that end, we hosted Kindergarten Information Night on March 24, 2022 at 6:00 p.m. in the Vogel Auditorium.  At Kindergarten Information Night, administrators and teachers will share details about the kindergarten program and answer your questions. 

In addition to Kindergarten Information Night, we have compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions about Kindergarten in Wrentham. We hope that the information provided will help you understand our kindergarten options. 

Sincerely,

Kathleen Maloney
Delaney School Principal

Kindergarten Screening
Top of Page

Kindergarten screening is mandated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Once registration is completed, parents will be contacted by the school to set up a screening appointment through a signup link. 
 
The screening process involves:
  • Children’s readiness skills in basic concepts, motor, and language will be assessed in order to identify any students in need of special education services
  • A norm reference tool that yields age equivalent scores is used. 
  • Wrentham Public Schools use the DIAL-4, Developmental Indicators for the Assessment of Learning.
Please note:
  • Parents can help to prepare by ensuring your child gets a good night's sleep. Role playing might be helpful so your child feels comfortable going with the teacher.
  • It is NOT a pass fail test to enter kindergarten or determine readiness.
  • The entire screening process takes approximately 60 minutes.
  • Screening is completed by teachers in kindergarten classrooms.
  • Parents do not accompany children to the classroom.
  • Parents will be informed of results via mail.
