Principal's Message

{title}
Welcome to the 2015-16 school year. I am excited to return to Mary H. Wright, where I began my teaching career under the tutelage of Dr. Judith Bazemore and Mrs. Barbara Whitney. I learned so much from them and from colleagues and students at that time, and I hope to help facilitate that with our present school community. There is no place I would rather serve.
We have a committed staff that is ready to serve our students and families. There is an abundance of resources to help our students succeed, including 1:1 iPads for our students and dynamic partnerships with several local businesses and faith-based partners.
