Dear Cottage Grove Families,
My name is Danyelle Wright and I am excited to be your Principal this year! We at CGS are committed to student achievement and creating a community of learners. Our goal is to prepare our future scholars as lifelong learners who value positive relationships and culturally responsive practices in and out of school. I am grateful to have had Mr. Foster and the CGS staff who built the foundation for a successful and welcoming school environment, as a blueprint for our new future together as Wolves. It is truly an honor to be able to lead alongside our wonderful first and second grade teachers and staff who traditionally served our families in two separate buildings but now are joining as one team and one family at CGS.
For those of you who have not met me, I have been in education for over 10 years as an education assistant, special education teacher and administrator. I am looking forward to meeting new faces, collaborating with teachers and administrators while serving you and your children. We know from experience, and research has confirmed, that students are better able to learn when their other needs are met. My goal is to ensure that each scholar in CGS is healthy, safe, and loved so that they can learn as much as they can while enrolled at CGS.
Once again, I am so thankful to have the opportunity to be a part of this community and to bring with me all that I have experienced and learned.
I look forward to our partnership,
