UMS-Wright Parents' Association


The Parents' Association(PA) has two main goals:

1)To raise money and
2)To promote an engaged school community, school spirit, and healthy relationships among the students, faculty, staff, and 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 include 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 to getting involved in your child’s school and education. We encourage you to volunteer however you can whether it is with time or services. 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 volunteer please don’t hesitate to contact me directly.
