J.C. Parks for­mer principal Wright will be missed

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum - Karen Dresser, White Plains

When your ar­ti­cle on the place­ment of prin­ci­pals in Charles County came out re­cently, I was sad­dened that Tha­dine Wright has been moved from J.C. Parks El­e­men­tary School. She is an amaz­ing principal. Mrs. Wright sets a high bar for the stu­dents, and the stu­dents reach that bar. My daugh­ter has a phe­nom­e­nal foun­da­tion for her fu­ture learn­ing be­cause of Mrs. Wright and the staff at J.C. Parks. I have seen Mrs. Wright in nu­mer­ous sit­u­a­tions where a child (or adult) had an out of the or­di­nary need, and she met that need. I’ve per­son­ally had her go be­yond what I needed to have my daugh­ter’s needs met. Mrs. Wright and her staff have a run a seam­less pro­gram at J.C. Parks. The chil­dren have been safe, well ed­u­cated, de­vel­oped con­fi­dence and (at least mine) en­joyed be­ing at school.

I will whole-heart­edly wel­come the new principal and am sure he will be won­der­ful; how­ever, I want for the com­mu­nity to know how im­por­tant Mrs. Wright has been for J.C. Parks and for my fam­ily. May the J.P. Ryon com­mu­nity wel­come her with open arms.
