Attention Car Riders!
Parent drop off and pick up is at the entrance by Sheridan Drive. Please follow the line of cars that snakes through the neighborhood so we don’t back up traffic on Castle Hayne Road.
Make sure you have the car tag hanging from your rearview mirror when you pick up your child(children) in the afternoon. It should be visible and clear of any obstructions. This helps make parent pick-up go smoother and faster in the afternoons! If you need another car tag, please contact your child’s teacher.
Please practice buckling and unbuckling with your young children. They should be able to complete this task independently. If they are not able to do this, please pull into a parking space with your child so you can buckle them.

Bailey Cookson - PreK Teacher
Hello! My name is Ms. Cookson. I am so grateful for the opportunity to teach preschool here at Wrightsboro Elementary! This is my 12th year in the early learning field and there truly is no place I’d rather be! Although I am originally from the Midwest, I am a graduate of UNCW, where I earned a B.A. in the Education of Young Children in 2010. After graduating, I spent 7 years teaching public pre-k for New Hanover County Schools. During that time I had the honor of serving as Teacher of the Year for Howe Pre-K and was a top four finalist in the elementary category for our county. Additionally, I was nominated and appointed to participate in the UNCW Master Teacher Program.
My family is my world, and we live just around the corner in Castle Hayne. My husband, Ben, and I have 4 children: Lucy (10), Griffen (7), Frankie (4), and Oona (2). We are a blended family and I love being both a mom and step-mom to our amazing children. I could not be more proud. :) Three of our children will be Cool Cats this year and we are so excited to join the Wrightsboro school family. In our free time, our family loves spending time with our friends enjoying coffee, the beach, and our own backyard.

My interests include music, trivia, comedy, movies, television shows, video games, tabletop games, sports, cars, food/cooking, languages, culture, and travel. I am also learning how to play the guitar. I have visited all states in the continental United States, Mexico, Canada, Japan, and South Korea. I look forward to a fantastic school year and serving the students, families, and community of Wrightsboro Elementary School.

Updates & Reminders
- If you have not completed the beginning of year online paperwork, please do so ASAP.
- School begins at 7:50 each day. Any students arriving after 7:50 are tardy and will need to be taken to the office to check-in.
- All students, staff, and visitors are required to wear a mask while inside at school. This is for the safety of all and to limit the number of quarantines due to exposures. Students can take their masks off inside to eat and can play outside at recess or PE without their masks.
- Please contact the school nurse or your child’s teacher if your child has been sick, exposed to COVID, or tested positive for COVID.
