MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL
December 9, 2019
This has been a busy year with much learning happening at Colonel Wright Elementary School.
Last Thursday evening, our gymnasium was full of parents and family members of Grades K-3 as they shared their “Holiday of Lights”. It was a wonderful turnout and every chair in the gym was filled. Ramona Harwood led the Troubadours, and grades K-3 in songs about the season, gratitude, and being a change in the world.
Since last writing in this column, students have participated in a walk-a-then under the guidance of the Parent Teacher organization. The winners were able to “silly string” the principal and Mr. Conklin, our PE teacher. Students also participated in a cross-country completion with other elementary schools and Colonel Wright brought home the trophy.
We have had many “firsts” of the year : our first report cards, our first Parent Teacher Conferences, and our first Family Night where we had “passports” to visit other countries.
As we head into this holiday season and a time of year when illnesses happen, please stay healthy. Yes, every day at school matters. We learn so much. We also need to stay well. Have a wonderful rest of this year.

Colonel Wright Elementary School is now in its third week of school. It has been a busy time! Students have visited the different areas of the school to learn expectations. They have experience two fire drills—one on Friday the 13th with a full moon and the other unexpected. They have handled both of these quite well. Students have met their teachers and have quickly adjusted to the change from summer to school and from summer to fall.
At Colonel Wright Elementary School there is an emphasis on respect, responsibility, and safety. We want to treat everyone—adults and students with kindness. We hope to have students present at school daily because “Every Day Matters”. We know that when students are in school they learn and grow in their skills. Much happens in the classroom daily and each skill learns builds upon another.
As a new administrator in the district, I am constantly learning. I welcome visits from the community and involvement in the school. Please know that your children are valuable to us. We hope to provide the best education for them.
