Wilson County Schools started back to school Thursday and at W.A. Wright Elementary it wasn’t just the students first day of school, it was also the first day for new Assistant Principal Peggy Druyor.
Jill Giles, principal at W.A. Wright Elementary, said she was excited for the first day of school for the students as well as for the addition to their administration.
“We are so thrilled that Dr. Druyor is here with us,” Giles said. “So this first day has been absolutely excellent.”
Druyor said she was “thrilled to pieces” to be at W.A. Wright.
Giles said there were no issues whatsoever through the first day, and everything ran better than anyone could have hoped.
“All the staff worked together well today. Everyone from students and parents alike had positive comments to say,” Giles said. “It’s been a really, really good first day back.”
Druyor echoed Giles’ enthusiasm.
“We’ve had a fabulous day. I think it was a true team effort from everyone all the way around,” Druyor said.
Lebanon High School Principal Myra Sloan said she and the administrators felt the first day went off without a hitch.
“Everything went smooth as silk today. I’m almost afraid to say that because the day isn’t over yet, but I’m happy with how great everything has been,” Sloan said.
She said the new traffic plan for Lebanon High School really did a great job and helped move the first day along better than last year.
“I think the new traffic plan really made the difference with how smoothly things ran today,” Sloan said.
Regarding the ongoing construction at West Elementary, Director of Schools Tim Setterlund said they would go for two hours again on Friday but on Monday would be “full steam ahead” and back on normal school schedule.
