Barton Middle School Amanda Delaney Teacher of the Year
We are so excited to share that for our second year in operation, our staff selected teacher of the year was also selected to represent our MCPSS school district at the state level! Mrs. Amanda Delaney was chosen to be the Barton Teacher of the Year by her peers for her dedication to her craft, her generous good counsel, her proficiency in meeting all her students and motivating them to grow, and more! She is our sixth grade English-Language Arts teacher, our dyslexic specialist, our track coach and running club faculty sponsor, and she is the Mobile Metro Reading Council’s acting President. In this picture she is standing with our former teacher of the year, Mr. Will Edmonds, who became the State’s Secondary Teacher of the Year and the runner-up for Alabama’s Teacher of the Year last year. He was thrilled to be able to pass along the title of MCPSS’s middle school T.O.Y. to Mrs. Delaney. She was surprised with this happy news on Friday, January 20, 2023 by the MCPSS communication department, her board member – Sherry McDade, her principal Dr. Amanda Jones, and a few members of her family. Students and teachers were filling the hallways and her classroom doorway cheering in happy appreciation of her well-deserved recognition! We are so proud of her!

UMS-Wright Lower School Book Challenge
The “Wright Way” is a counseling class taught by Lower School counselor, Mrs. Schoenvogel, to all K3-4 students. In August, Mrs. Schoenvogel read a book to each grade level called, “This School Year will be THE BEST!” by Kay Winters. In the story, the students all share a wish or hope they would like to have happen during the course of their school year. Mrs. Schoenvogel then challenged each Lower School classroom, K3-4, to read at least 100 books by the end of the semester. If this task was achieved, Mrs. Marks graciously “agreed” to kiss a PIG!
The goal was met and in January, Mrs. Marks completed the mission!
A special thank you to the Harbin family for bringing “little Pig” to campus for this momentous occasion.
