Dear Parents and Students:

As I am finishing up my third week as interim principal on behalf of Kimmarie Taylor, I can say my welcome has been a warm one.  I am truly appreciating the help and support I am receiving from our faculty and staff.  A.E. Wright has had a long history of caring for children.  I was recently reminded of the slogan coined at AEWMS a long time ago which states "We are Wright Because We Care"! That caring continues! 

The district has now begun the interview and hiring process for selecting the future principal. Interview panels have been formed including representation of teachers, parents, staff and administrators.  Faculty and staff have been able to provide input on the desired personal and professional characteristics of the new principal. 

AEWMS is a busy place!  Our students continue to respond well to our teachers and the instructional program.  I am very impressed with the use of technology that has opened up another world of learning.  The ACER laptops are being well used by our faculty and students.  I have observed several different classes and programs where students have been able to use technology and the internet for research and classroom instruction. The next 8 weeks of school will go by pretty rapidly.  This can be a stressful time for students and teachers as the school year winds down.  We willcontinue to maintain our focus on making sure your child continues to be successful in their classwork and assignments.


The 3rd Quarter Progress Report is now available on AERIES. Teachers are required to report any student receiving a D or F grade.  In some cases if you do not see a grade posted that means your child is earning a C or better grade.  Please follow up with your child's teacher especially if he or she is earning less than a C grade.

The Free Homework Help Center is a great resource for our students who needed extra support.  Free homework help is available on Mondays and Wednesdays from3:15 - 4:00 pm. 

Student participation in intramural sports, school dances, field trips, assemblies, awards, and 8th grade culmination ceremonies depends on the school-wide eligibility point system.  We have been encouraging students to make up their points if they have less than 90.  Students can make up their points before school, during lunch or after school.  Forms are available in the office and final point value is approved by Mr. Patrick Miller.  It is very important if you have an 8th grader who may currently be ineligible to participate in the culmination ceremonies.  Encourage your child to begin to make up his or her points to remain eligible for all school activities.

During April we have several important events scheduled:
·       April 1: District Band Festival from 8:45 am - 2:15 pm. 6th Period Advanced Band will be attending the festival.

·April 1: 5th Grade Parent Night from 7:00 to 8:00 pm in the Gym.

·April 2: 5TH Grade Visitation Day from 9:00 am to 10:30 am.  District transportation will be provided for 5th graders. Parents of out of district students are to provide personal transportation for your children. You can remain on campus during this time.  We will have a waiting location for you during the time of your child's visit.

·April 2: 6th grade Beach Day - Beach safety instruction will be provided for 6th graders.

·April 3:  No school - local holiday.

·April 6 - 10: Spring Break

·April 15: PFC Meeting 9:00 am - 11:00 am

·April 16: Open House - 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm - Information will be sent home prior to Open House

·April 23: 6th/7th Grade Dance:  1:10 pm - 3:00 pm

·April 20 -24: Aluminum Can Drive

·       April 27-May 8: CAASPP Testing. Please make a note on your calendar, as attendance on all testing days is extremely important. Attendance on May 4, 5, and 6 is absolutely essential as students will be completing a classroom activity which requires teacher facilitation and collaboration with classmates which is very difficult to make-up independently. Also, headphones are needed for the English portion of the test and students are encouraged to bring their own headphones. Click here to see the schedule during these important test days.

In closing, we receive a great deal of support from our parents.  We truly appreciate your help.

Joe Nardo
Interim Principal
