Greetings, Wrightwood Elementary School families,
The nature of Wrightwood Elementary School was validated last Spring by the students and parents who completed the California Healthy Kids Survey. Specifically, our “customers” responded overwhelmingly that they are proud of their school (97%). Students and parents believe their teachers and staff genuinely care about the kids (98%), and 96% of our students feel safe every day at school. This is important information for our staff, as a successful school begins with how we make students feel. When that feeling of safety and caring is in place, we can then tackle the academics.
Perhaps the biggest feeling I have as principal of Wrightwood Elementary is one of gratitude. I am surrounded by kind and fun and ambitious children, by teachers who put kids first and who work tirelessly to provide a great school experience for them, and by families who support our efforts both in school and at home. And I get to do all of this in the small, beautiful, community-minded town of Wrightwood, where everyone looks up to us (elevation 6000 feet)!
Welcome to another school year, and thank you in advance for being a contributor to this school. Thank you for trusting us and sharing your children with us. We know how precious they are to you, and every day we strive to treat them as if they were our own. We hope to make you proud of your school!
