Dear Parents,

It is great to be back at A.E. Wright! Thank you for all of your support and well wishes for the new addition to my family. Mr. Nardo and I have been in regular contact during my leave and he has expressed many times his appreciation and amazement of the students, staff, and parents at A.E. Wright. Thank you to all those who wrote short notes of appreciation to the staff last week as part of Teacher Appreciation Week. The staff truly appreciated the kind words, the many goodies that were brought in throughout the week, and the tasty and beautifully decorated luncheon put on by the PFC.

I am pleased to announce that Dr. Stepenosky, LVUSD Superintendent, has recommended to the Board of Education that Mrs. Christina Desiderio be named the principal of A.E. Wright next year. Mrs. Desiderio has been the principal at Yerba Buena Elementary School for the past six years. Prior to her tenure at Yerba Buena, Mrs. Desiderio was a dean and assistant principal at Lindero Canyon Middle School. We welcome Mrs. Desiderio and look forward to working with her.

We are on the final stretch of the school year! These next few weeks are going to be very busy for your student. Please help your child finish the year strong by encouraging them to complete their WARP requirements early, checking AERIES, study small amounts each night the week before a test, and getting plenty of rest at night. The 15week grading period ended on March 8 and progress report grades are now available on AERIES. If you have any questions about missed assignments or citizenship grades, now is the time to have the discussion with your student and if necessary, with your child’s teacher(s).

This week the students have the opportunity to participate in a fundraiser in support of Nepal. As you know, Nepal was hit by a massive earthquake on April 26, 2015. Thousands of Nepalis have lost their homes and are desperate for clean water, food, medical supplies, and materials to rebuild their homes. Please help A.E. Wright support the people of Nepal by encouraging your student to donate to the cause. This week we are having a “Change Challenge” in the homeroom classes. Each homeroom has a change bucket to collect monetary donations. Checks may also be made out to Karuna-Shechen USA and turned into the main office. Today, students had the opportunity to send happy messages around the world by creating “Wish Flags” during lunch. On Friday, students are encouraged to wear the colors of the Nepali flag – red, white, blue, and black.

6th & 7th grade Elective Request Forms must be completed online by May 15. To access the request form, please have your student go to aewrightmiddleschool.net, click on News and Notes, then click on the link for your student’s grade level in the fall (i.e. current 6th grade students should click on the 7th Grade Elective link). Students should fill out the form and then hit submit at the end. If you have any questions about the electives or your student is having difficulty filling out the online form, please email your student’s counselor. While we try our best to give students their first or second elective choice, it is not always possible. That is why we asked students to prioritize their top elective choices. We once again anticipate a wait-list for zero-period. Students will be notified by the beginning of August whether or not they were selected during the zero-period lottery.

8th Grade Parents, Culmination is right around the corner. Please make sure you review the information that was sent home in the Culmination Packet and check the A.E. Wright web site regularly for end of the year information and updates from the high schools. Please note, students must have 90 points to participate in any of the culmination and end of the year activities. Applications for giving a speech at culmination and for designing the program cover are available in the main office. Speech applications and design covers are due on May 15 in the Assistant Principal’s Office.

This year’s Fitness Celebration is on May 21. The Fitness Celebration is a fundraiser to help raise funds for our Parent Faculty Club, purchase new equipment for the P.E. department and update old equipment, and increase awareness of the importance of movement in our everyday lives. During the day, students will have the opportunity to participate in different fitness activities during their P.E. period. This year, KIND has graciously agreed to sponsor our Fitness Celebration and will be providing KIND healthy snacks during the celebration. We are still in need of donations for prizes for the event, including a grand prize. If you are able to donate a prize, please contact Yvette Kraake at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
