Principal's Message

  • principal

    Dear Fairfield Court Elementary Families,

    My name is Angela Wright and I am so excited to introduce myself as the principal of Fairfield Court Elementary School. These are unprecedented times and with COVID-19 we know things will look different this year for students coming to school.

    Over the past 25 years, I have worked as a teacher and administrator, but I consider my most important job to be that of a child advocate. I will spend a lot of time with your children, getting to know their personalities, learning styles and interests. I will celebrate their successes, small and large. We, as a school team, will encourage them every day and let them know they are valued and have a special place in our school community.

    Not only am I excited to begin working with your children, but I look forward to the work we will do together. As the old African Proverb states, “It takes a village to raise a child.” I am excited to see your children through your eyes. I cannot wait to share with you the great things they do throughout their days here at Fairfield Court Elementary, virtually. And of course I will be here to work with you should they need any help navigating any aspect of the school day. My goal is to ensure that all children are healthy, happy and safe, so they may learn as much as they can be without being in the school house.

    Our counselor and social worker will be teaching the 2nd Step Program, which focuses on the emotional, social and academic aspects of the child. This has been my philosophy since I began my career teaching with in 1994. I also facilitated professional development and parent workshops. I then worked in Caroline County for twelve years as a teacher and administrator, continuing to reach and teach student leaders on the middle school level. My last three years have been at John B. Cary Elementary in Richmond, Virginia, before transitioning to Fairfield Court Elementary. But my greatest achievement comes not professionally, but personally, as I am the mother of two grown sons, Joshua and Caleb, who have carved their own path in the world as young black men. People often say I treat all children in my school as if they were my own. Please know I will work tirelessly to ensure all your children have the best possible experiences while at Fairfield Court Elementary. Once again, I am so thankful to have the opportunity to bring all that I have experienced and learned with me to your wonderful community. 

    There are some upcoming dates that we want to make sure you are aware of to ensure all students at Fairfield will be successful!

  • RPS Direct Update - September 24, 2021

    Dear #RPSStrong Family, Happy Fall Friday! Tonight's updates: Richmond Virtual Academy (RVA) Waitlist Update – Please note the following: By next Friday, October 1, we will notify all preschool-5th grade families of their status – whether offered a seat or not – via the email address they used to register their student/s on the waitlist. In the interest of fairness, we are using a randomized selection process to identify students for the limited number of available seats. As I shared last week, there are unfortunately no more virtual seats for middle and high school students. Any family who is already enrolled in virtual can switch to in-person at any time by completing the Switch Pathways Form (Formulario de Cambio de Decisión).
