Students and staff at James C. Wright Middle School will commemorate the tenth anniversary of the charter school through a Give Us 10! campaign. Wright students will read 10 books outside of the classroom curriculum and then create a mural showcasing their hand prints and the book titles they’ve read. This colorful symbol of student achievement will be showcased in the LMC at Wright.
Community members are welcome to join in the celebration by honoring students who reach the ten book goal. They can show their support by contributing $10 to the Wright Middle School Endowment at the Foundation for Madison’s Public Schools, so they too can Give Us 10!
Contributions to the Wright Endowment can be made online through the Foundation’s web site at http://www.fmps.org/ then choose “Give a Gift Today,” select Wright Middle School, and designate for Give Us 10!. The campaign will be held throughout the 2007-08 school year.
