Dear Wright Families,
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and welcome you to the Wright Middle School STEAM Magnet. My name is Christina Wantz and I am excited and honored to be the principal. I have been a member of this school community for sixteen years and I am looking forward to working with our returning families as well as our new families as we continue to strengthen our school community.
I had the opportunity to be a part of the Design Team that was charged with designing and successfully opening the new STEAM Magnet. For me, this experience was an opportunity to work with an amazing team to develop our intention as a school community and to hire a staff that believed in this intention and was ready to commit to our students. It was also an opportunity to define our STEAM focus and develop our curriculum. A Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics curriculum pairs the sciences with creativity and exploration to allow our students to develop the critical thinking and 21st Century skills needed to be successful in tomorrow’s workforce.
Our outstanding staff, known as the STEAM TEAM, opened their classroom doors and greeted our students with excitement and an eagerness to get to know each and every one of them. I encourage you to visit our campus and meet our outstanding teachers and leadership team. Our leadership team consists of Mr. Davis, Instructional Theme Specialist, Mrs. Gardner, Magnet Coordinator, Ms. Jacques, Instructional Teacher Advisor, and myself. We look forward to building a partnership with each family and we thank you for allowing us to be a part of your child’s academic experience.
