Principal's Message

Jaclyn DelaneyWelcome to the Boone School website!  This is a great place to visit to find information regarding instruction, student activities, and school events.  You will also see lots of pictures of students, staff, and families working, playing, and learning together.  We hope you will visit us often to stay up to date with all that is happening here at Boone.

Boone School serves approximately 830 students in grades PK-8.  With over 30 different home languages spoken by our students and their families, we have an incredibly diverse student population. We work every day to create an inclusive community where all students find joy in learning, and where all students are encouraged to explore, create, and advocate for themselves and others. As a Fine and Performing Arts Magnet Cluster School, our Expressive Arts teachers provide instruction in Visual Art, Dance, Music, Drama, Visual Communications, Technology, Health and Physical Education. We also integrate the arts throughout our curriculum to ensure that students have regular opportunities to perform and share their artistic and athletic abilities.  

Parents and guardians have many opportunities to participate in school activities. Please visit our “Community” section for more information about our Local School Council (LSC), Parent Advisory Committee (PAC), and Bilingual Advisory Committee (BAC).  We also encourage parents to make appointments with their child’s teacher to schedule classroom visits or to discuss volunteer opportunities.  

Thank you for visiting our site and for your interest in Boone School, and please feel free to contact me at jdelaney@cps.edu. We look forward to a fantastic year of learning and growing together!


With gratitude,

Jaclyn Delaney, Principal
