Back to School
Posted by Ryan Allan on 8/30/2019
Welcome back to school! There are so many emotions that come with this time of year. Just like our students, we, at Wright Elementary, are experiencing a range of feelings. Excitement, hopefulness, joyfulness, nervousness, determination, anticipation, to name just a few. This year at Wright is going to be amazing and when we all pull together in the same direction, we can continue the great tradition that our school has begun.
HOW CAN YOU PULL IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION?
- STUDENTS --- Be intentional. Think. Dedicate yourself to the job of being a Wright Jet and a member of a team that wants to see you soar to success. Know that you have support (teachers, administrators, parents, friends, in fact, our entire school system) that wants nothing more than to see you achieve at high levels. Embrace our core values - Joy, Empathy, Teamwork, and Service - and live them out with everyone with whom you interact. Remember who you are and represent your family well.
- PARENTS --- Be engaged. Did you know that current research tells us that the most accurate predictor of student success is not socioeconomic status, or how prestigious a school is? The best predictor of student success is the extent to which families encourage learning at home and involve themselves in their child’s education. We invite you to be as involved in your student’s education as possible.
- STAFF --- Be urgent. Today matters. Every day matters. Allow your Joy of teaching to be seen by all. Prepare our students to master standards, lead by example, and embrace social responsibility. Believe that every student can achieve at high levels and maintain high expectations. Support each student in the personalized way they deserve and empower students to own their own learning.
The 2019-2020 school is going to be our best ever at Wright Elementary. Do your part and I’ll do mine and together, as JETS, we will soar to great heights. J-E-T-S Jets! Jets! Jets!
