Dear Wheelock School Families,
Welcome to the Ralph Wheelock School website. I am honored to be the principal of Ralph Wheelock School. I am excited to share with you some of the components that make Wheelock School such a great place to learn each and every day. It is our goal to educate your children within a safe, loving, supportive and nurturing environment.
At Ralph Wheelock School teachers and staff work hard to insure that the needs of all learners are met. Our priority continues to be student learning, insuring every student is challenged to achieve or exceed grade level, district and state expectations. We also are committed to helping children to think critically and creatively and to develop the citizenship and character traits essential for living within our society. We will accept no limits on the learning potential of any child. Our priority is clearly student achievement.
Collaboration with the community is a strong component of a Wheelock education. We are fortunate to have strong parent organizations in our CSA, SEPAC, and the support of the Medfield Coalition. Strong community involvement is the hallmark of an effective school.
As parents and guardians, you are the first and most important educator in your child’s life. Your children bring enthusiasm and excitement to our school every day. I am grateful to be working with such a caring, dedicated staff to our students. It is a privilege to have the opportunity to be your partner in the education, as we work together to inspire the strong belief that all children receive an education that enables them to reach their fullest potential.
We truly appreciate the tremendous parent support at Ralph Wheelock School. We want parents and community members to visit our school and feel welcome. I look forward to getting to know you this year. Please feel free to contact me at any time with concerns or questions.
Donna M. Olson
