UMS-Wright Parents' Association


Dear UMS-Wright Family,

I would like to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year and extend an invitation to become involved in our Parents’ Association if you have not already. The mission of the Parents’ Association is to support the students, teachers and faculty of UMS-Wright through Mind, Body and Spirit.

We host four fundraisers each year: Used Uniform Sale, Dawgs on the Hunt, Homecoming/Online Spirit Store, and Crimson and Grey Day/Online Auction. Money raised through PA events is used to purchase large “Wish List” items that are not covered by tuition or the Wright Fund and to enhance students’ and teachers’ everyday life. “Wish List” items in the past have included: water bottle filling stations, new sound system for Wilson Gym, funding for non-revenue sports, Kajet Smart-bus WiFi, technology carts and iPads, curriculum enhancements (including Orton-Gillingham Multisensory Instruction training), Risers for the fine arts, playground upgrades, and much more! In any given year, the PA raises between $90,000 and $120,000!

In addition to fundraising, the PA committee members organize quarterly Teacher Appreciation luncheons, Teacher Appreciation Week, Box Tops for Education, beautification around campus and hospitality receptions for all student performances and awards.

The PA is a great way to become involved in your child’s school and education. We encourage you to volunteer however you can. Please fill out the below interest inventory survey to get started (scan QR code). Volunteering on campus will provide you with opportunities to stay informed, meet other parents, and become an active part of the UMS-Wright family.

As a parent, you are already considered a member of the PA. The PA is run entirely by volunteers and there are no member fees. We truly appreciate each and every volunteer who has dedicated their time to create a better school for our children! While we are sure to face uncertainty this year, I have no doubt that the PA and the UMS-Wright family will be “Closer Than Ever.” I look forward to working with you as we venture down the WrightPAth to a successful school year.
