UMS-Wright Parents' Association


Dear UMS- Wright Family,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year. I look forward to seeing you all on campus this year. The Parents’ Association (PA) is a great way to get involved in your child’s school and education. The mission of our association is to support the students, teachers and faculty of UMS -Wright through Mind, Body and Spirit.

In an effort to support our school, the Parents’ Association is the main avenue to volunteer on campus. As a parent, you are already a member of the Parents’ Association. There are no membership fees. Our entire group is run entirely by volunteers. We encourage you to volunteer in any way you can share your time and talents. Please fill out the (HYPERLINK TO QR CODE) survey and indicate how you would like to get involved.

The Parents’ Association organizes Teacher Appreciation week, collects Box Tops for Education, host all receptions after student performances and awards ceremonies, organizes Homecoming activities, works on beautification around our campus and host Crimson and Grey Day online auction and field day activities.

To support our school, the Parents’ Association host four fundraisers each year - Crimson and Grey Day online auction, Homecoming - online spirit store, Dawgs on the Hunt and Used Uniform sales. Our fundraising efforts yield around $100,000 annually. Funds raised through these fundraisers are used to purchase large “Wish List” items that are not covered by tuition or the Wright Fund. These items are used to enhance our students’ and teachers’ everyday life on campus. Items purchased from the PA fundraising efforts have included: funding for non-revenue sports, curriculum enhancements like Orton-Gillingham multi-sensory instruction training, risers for use in Fine Arts performances, water bottle filling stations, a new sound system for the Wilson Gym, Kajet Smart-Bus WiFi, technology carts and iPads and much more.

The Parents’ Association truly appreciates each and every volunteer who has dedicated his/her time to create a better school for our children. I help to see you at one of our meetings this year or around campus during our fundraising efforts.

Warmest regards,

Amy Carpenter
