Wright Traditions

                              The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

UMS-Wright School Prayer

  Dear Lord and Heavenly Father ~
  As we search for knowledge and wisdom,
  Grant that we may not forget
  That Thou art the Giver of all good and perfect gifts.
  Teach us to play the game with honor,
       in our work and in our play.
  May our words and deeds be such that those who
       were before us
  Will not be ashamed, and those who follow after
  Will find in us an example of truth and courage,
       the spirit of our school.
  Give to us a noble spirit, that we, with our teachers,
  May go forward to achieve the highest goals in life.
  Bless our school and all who teach and all who learn
  And Thine be the honor and glory forever. Amen.

                ~David H. Edington, UMS, c/o 1899


Julius T. Wright Student Prayer

  Our Father we pray that we may show ourselves
  Approved workmen before Thee
  And that we need not be ashamed of our works.
  We pray that Thy word shall be as a lamp unto our feet
  Showing the way and guiding us in the right pathway.
  May the words of our mouths and the meditations
       of our hearts be acceptable in Thy sight,
  O Lord our strength and our Redeemer.  Amen.

UMS-Wright Alma Mater

  In the name of Julius T. Wright,
        sing all voices old and new.
  In praise of our beloved school, 
        may faithful hearts be true.
  In the halls his spirit lingers
        building strength, integrity,
  And those who come and go through them
        will find serenity.
  Even though the faces change, our spirit
        here remains
  because our memories always draw us home. 
  In hearts and minds that grow
       all sons and daughters know
  we have more than a school - we have a home.
  In the name of Julius T. Wright,
       may our words and deed be such
  that grey and crimson spirit shall live on -
                              lyrics - Matthew Rone 1991
                              music - "Halls of Ivy"




  For the UMS-Wright Family to educate all
  students to their highest potential in mind,
  body, and spirit; and to produce in each
  student character of the highest possible order.
