Principal's Message

{title}
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.

The Episcopal Church of the Advent’s Girl Scouts generously donated about 300 books to our school!

Thank you Troop 1664 girls!

Celebrating Reading at Mary H. Wright!

We’re celebrating reading more strongly than ever at Mary H. Wright this week as part of Read Across America and Dr. Seuss’ Birthday. Guest readers from our community will read to students in grades 2-5 before school each morning, and Community Helpers will read to our kindergarteners in their classrooms.
On Dr. Seuss’ birthday, our Church of the Advent partners are providing a fun-filled carnival event for our 1st graders.
Thank you to all who are coordinating these events for our children.

Help Student Council add a little more COLOR to someone’s life!!!
Children who have to stay in the hospital for long periods of time, can get bored very easily. Please help Mary H. Wright’s Student Council during the month of March collect coloring books and crayons to donate to Spartanburg Regional’s Pediatric Unit.
Thanks so much!

Black History Program

Our school community celebrated Black History Month with an outstanding program featuring Kris Williams as our Master of Ceremony. The speaker for the event was Jerome Rice III, “Jay,” and he was introduced by his father, Mr. Jerome Rice. He spoke to our students and audience about Goals and their importance to everyone.
We enjoyed video tributes to famous Black Americans, several special Boys and Girls Club dance performances, and our Mary H. Wright Chorus’ musical selections.
Members of our community visited the Black History Committee’s fabulous Black History Museum following the program. Complete with interactive displays, historical scenes, documentaries, activities, beautiful works of art, and much more, it was an educational experience enjoyed by all.
Thank you to all who had a part in coordinating and creating our Black History Month events.
