Principal's Letter

  •                       Sylvia Miles-Wright, Principal

                Principal of W.R. James, Sr. Elementary School
                                      Sylvia Miles-Wright
     
     
     
    Dear Parents/Guardians,
     

    Our goal for this year is to have every student attend school every day!

    Being present in school has a major impact on a students academic success starting as early as Pre-K and continuing through high school. Parents and guardians play a key role in making sure students get to school every day, even when students are older and more independent. 

    We recognize that some absences cant be avoided because of medical problems or other circumstances. But we also realize that when students miss too much school for any reason, it can cause them to fall behind academically. Our students are less likely to succeed if he or she is chronically absent. A student is chronically absent if he or she misses just two days every month, including excused and unexcused absences. 

    We want all of our students to have the best opportunities for academic success. Please make sure your child attends school every day and arrives on time.

    Tell us how we can be supportive of you and your children so that they can come to school on time every day. Visit the website of www.attendanceworks.org for more information or tips on helping your students to be successful in school.

    Sincerely,

     

     Ms. Miles-Wright, Principal

RED RIBBON

  •                 Red Ribbon Week

     

                      10/23/17-10/31/17

    What is Red Ribbon Week?

    The campaign is a week-long effort in which everyone at school gets to show their support of being drug-free by wearing a Red Ribbon

    The Red Ribbon is used as a symbol of support to "Stay Off Drugs."  

    During the week of October 23rd through October 31st, W. R. James has scheduled programs and activities that focus on drug and bullying prevention.  Students will learn why it is important to stay away from drugs.  They will also learn strategies to prevent bullying in their school.    

    The Red Ribbon Campaign Prevention Week was started to honor a fallen Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent by the name of Enrique "Kiki" Camarena.  DEA Agent Camarena was brutally murdered after going undercover in an effort to help reduce drug trafficking that was occurring along the U.S./Mexican border.   

    Red Ribbon Week utilizes unique educational tools/curriculum to spread the knowledge and importance of drug and bullying prevention. 

    The entire school comes together during Red Ribbon Week to teach our students to not only "Stand United Against Bullying & Drugs," but to also develop good habits, early in life, that will assist them in achieving future success.  

     Listed below, are important websites/links detailing more information about Red Ribbon Week for students, parents, and teachers.
