Crawl Space Vapor Barrier on Ground and Ceiling?

I am insulating an vented but unconditioned crawl space under a new addition to my house in Maryland.

I am putting R 30 batts between the joists in the ceiling of the crawl space.

I am placing 6 mil plastic on the gravel that covers the floor of the crawl space.

Should I also cover the ceiling of the crawl space with housewrap after I install the R30 batts?

Many Thanks to experts providing answers.

VB on the ground is fine. Make sure you seal all seams and run it up the wall. Your in a green grass state id close the vents.
