UMS-Wright Parents' Association

 

Welcome to the UMS-Wright Family!

The Parents' Association (PA) has two main goals:  to raise money, and, to promote an engaged school community, school spirit, and healthy relationships among the students, faculty, staff, and the Board of Trustees.

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’ everyday life. “Wish list” items in the past have included smart boards, technology carts, curriculum enhancements (such as STEM), athletic equipment, playground upgrades, computer desks, the electronic announcement board on the stadium fence, and many more!  We host four fundraisers: Used Uniform Sale, Dawgs on the Hunt Clay Shoot, Homecoming, and Crimson & Grey Day/Online Auction. In any given year, the PA raises between $90,000 and $120,000!

In addition to fundraising, the PA committee members organize Teacher Appreciation, Box Top for Education, Recycling, Beautification of our campus, Hospitality and many more programs.

The PA is your way of getting involved in your child’s school and education. We encourage you to volunteer however you can. Volunteering allows parents to be on campus, stay informed, meet other parents, and be a part of the UMS-Wright family. 

As a parent, you are automatically a member of the PA.  The PA is run entirely by volunteers, and there is no fee to be a member. Thank you to everybody that has volunteered to help create a better school for our children. If you like to get involved, please scan the QR Code on this page and complete the volunteer information or contact me directly.

Sincerely,

Goldie Burkholder
