Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2016-17 school year. Mary H. Wright Elementary School has entered the candidacy phase to become an International Baccalaureate School. There are 10 student attributes valued by IB schools (inquirers, thinkers, principled, caring, and reflective are just some of the attributes) that will permeate all that we do. As our teachers and students learn much more about being successful IB students, we will invite parents in periodically to learn more about this challenging program.

Teachers of the Year Awards
LaTyphani Littlejohn (Typhani), first grade teacher from The Cleveland Academy of Leadership, has been selected as the 2016-17 Spartanburg School District 7 Teacher of the Year. Ms. Littlejohn finds no greater pleasure than of a servant leader. “Teaching is beyond a career for me. Teaching is a major part of my purpose and my life’s work!” With only 8 years so far in the classroom and the distinction this year of being voted Cleveland’s Teacher of the Year AND District 7’s Teacher of the Year, Littlejohn has proven herself a well respected, effective educator who goes above and beyond to satisfy the needs of her students. She stands out, with her calm disposition and compassionate nature, as a team player who understands the common goal of improving student achievement. In her warm, welcoming classroom Ms. Littlejohn approaches each topic with excitement while also incorporating interactive technology in her lessons to make connections. She says giving her students a purpose for learning is paramount and that it’s her job to help them find success.

Spartanburg County Library’s Summer Reading Program
Visit the Website for information: SCPL-SummerReading
We’re partnering with our public library to promote reading for all of our students. Every Mary H. Wright Elementary School student was given a Summer Reading Log on which to list the books, or hours, they read between the last day of school and July 31, 2016. We encourage participation over the summer by visiting the public library to check out books, pick up reading awards and prizes, and participate in special events.
You’ll also receive a $10 fine forgiveness voucher just for signing up!
We’ll have a representative visit our school in August to award prizes to those students who didn’t pick them up at the public library. Keep your reading record through the summer and bring it back to our school librarian, Mrs. C. Haggerty, for more reading prizes and fun!
