PTO-Warriors

Where we bring students, parents and teachers together to build a stronger school community!


Warrior PTO Welcome

E.L. Wright Parents are welcome to join the PTO. We are grateful many have decided to join: however, all are welcome. Our goal is to bring students, parents, teachers and community leaders together to ensure the students at E. L. Wright are ready for High School in 3 years! #32GetReady

Chick-fil-A Fundraiser

Goals for the 2016-2017 school year:

1.) School Store where students can buy items they need for class and to promote school spirit.

2.) Teacher Recognition - A way to recognize our teachers that work hard and ensure they have what they need for their students. With teacher shortages on the rise we believe if they are appreciated and have things available for them to use as they teach, they will stay here at ELWM.

3.) Canteen for Blue Ridge - We are researching the requirement and cost to put in a canteen on the athletic field for our outdoor events.

How long you have worked at E.L. Wright Middle School: 13 years

Favorite Restaurant: Rosso

Favorite Music/Artist: I love all types of music. Is it bad I can't pick one specific one?

Favorite thing to do after work: I have a family, so most of my time is spent with them. Which I love because time is passing by fast with each of them. My favorite is when we are sitting at the dinner table and we discuss our day and quiz each other with fun questions. PS-we are a normal family and yes they also drive me nuts too! :-)

Something people would be surprised to know about you: I use to twirl the fire baton at my high school football games when I was in elementary/middle school. I eventually gave it up to cheer.

One important skill you think every person should have: people skill's-in almost every job, you have to be able to work with others.

One super power you wish you had: Healing (the power to make people whole again or mend their broken hearts)

If you were a vegetable (an animal), what vegetable (animal) would you be? I would probably pick a dog because most dogs are usually loving and loyal. It seems like an easy life to be loved, fed and you get play times outside or other animals.
