Principal's Message

Tracey Wray, Principal


I'm so excited to be joining the Walnut Grove Family.  I'm formerly the assistant principal at Hazel Green High School, but I began my career as a second and third-grade teacher twenty years ago! I spent many years working with grades PreK-5 in the Hazel Green Elementary library and was over instructional technology at the high school before going into  administration.  I feel like I've done a little bit of everything! 

On the personal side, I've been married to Lance for twenty-three years.  Don't be surprised to see him at the school for events and extra-curricular activities.  We have a daughter, Olivia, heading to Auburn in the fall.  We also have a son, Carter, going into 8th grade at Meridianville Middle and Griffin, a junior at HGHS.  We've lived in the Hazel Green area for almost fourteen years.  I'm so proud of this community.  I love our schools and our people, and I feel blessed to continue my career here! 
I am committed to meeting the needs of all students at Walnut Grove. I believe that the relationship between students and teachers is critical in the learning process, and if there's ever anything I can do to help you, please contact me.  I look forward to getting know all of you!
