Leaders are built at Wright Elementary!

Evelyn, a Wright ES Student

We are so proud of one of our 3rd grade students, Evelyn! She has taken it upon herself to be proactive! Evelyn has teamed up with local Mask Catchers and goes out in the community to "catch" people wearing their masks and reward them!

She is truly showing what it means to be a leader and we are PROUD! Keep up the great work Evelyn!


December Dolphin Dialogue

Season’s Greetings from the Principal!

It’s unbelievable that it is December and with it comes the excitement that the season brings. We realize this season will be different. Our lives have changed due to COVID-19. However, we have remained constant. Our school is truly a community school and during this special time of year that closeness is demonstrated through the acts of kindness and friendship exhibited by all. The New Year will bring new challenges in learning and new opportunities for fun. I look forward to what we will accomplish in the New Year. Happy Holidays from Dr. Choice and the Wright Elementary Staff!

Wright ES School Report Card

There have been updates to the online Wright Elementary School Report Card from the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE). The updates emphasize subgroup performance, and the most recent changes allow viewers to drill down into how each subgroup is performing. They even assign a grade to the subgroup. Schools that are identified for support are now clearly identified together with the reasons for the identification. There is a highlight section for 3rd grade reading (not a formal part of the school grading formula on its own) and there was a great deal of discussion of the importance of this milestone.

Dolphin Dialogue - October

We are off to a great Fall Season. Here are some highlights for the month of October:


Our students have had Leader in Me (LIM) Training and are implementing what they have learned at school. Hopefully, you have accessed the LIM website so you can continue helping your students incorporate the 7 Habits in their daily lives. The Habits include: 1) Be Proactive 2) Begin with the End in Mind, 3) Put First Things First 4) Think Win Win, 5) Seek First to Understand, then to be Understood 6) Synergize and 7) Sharpen the Saw. We will continue to Celebrate Leadership and school unity by wearing Leadership T- Shirts every second Tuesday of each month. Ask your child to share their personal goal for the year.

Thank you for your patience with the Drop Off/Pick up line. As you know, we have plans move to the PikMyKid process. Registration information was posted on Bloomz.


  • October is a month we emphasize walker safety. October is also National Hispanic and School Principal Month
  • Our education of the whole child will continue this month with a celebration of National Hispanic Month and Red Ribbon Week.
  • We also encourage you to participate in our virtual SAC and PTO meetings.

October 26-30 “Be Happy Be Brave, Be Drug Free!” See the calendar for daily activities to promote Drug Free Lifestyles! Students, faculty, staff, volunteers, and parents are encouraged to be a part of Wright’s Red Ribbon Week celebration. Each day has a clothing theme. This is an excellent time for us to stress to students the importance of a drug-free lifestyle.
Habit of the Month.

The habit for October is Begin with the End in Mind. Begin each day or task with a clear vision of your direction and what you want to accomplish.

The Title I Compact Agreements will be sent home on Tuesday, 9/30.  The Title I Parent/Teacher/Student Agreement is a document that requires the teacher, parent and student to read and sign annually.  It is important that you, as parent explain the part you are signing, then, explain to your child the importance of reading, agreeing and abiding by the agreement they signed. These are duplicate forms so you, the student/parent, should keep the yellow copy at home but send the white copy back to school as soon as possible. Thank you for taking the time to send the Compact Agreement back to your child’s teacher not later than *Thursday, October 15.

Parents, please take a few minutes to view our Title I Annual Parent Meeting. Review the Title Compact sent home on 9/30, then take our Title I parent Survey. Spanish Subtitles can be turned on to view the video if needed. Title I Annual Parent Meeting 2020-2021 https://youtu.be/0TVMPNmbjg
