Welcome to Luther L. Wright K-12 School.
We are very glad you are here!
Welcome back parents, students and community to the start of our 2017-2018 school year! We are excited to begin our new year. Teachers have been preparing their classrooms and making plans for this school year and are eager to have you back! Some exciting new changes for this school year included our new basketball court on the 3-5 playground, the beginning planning stages for our our new Makerspace (STEAM) Room and upgrades to our school security system.
When you drive into the Curry St. Main Parking lot check out our new hoops in the Dust Bowl Playground area! This cement court yard featuring four basketball hoops was made possible by the generosity of our community. We would like to thank our teachers involved in the planning stages, Coleman Engineering, Ruotsala Concrete and the Gustave Swanson Estate for a generous donation.
As many of you are aware our district was awarded a generous grant of $64.000 through the Michigan State Police, which allowed us to upgrade all exterior doors to include keyless entry, replace all interior and exterior cameras to high definition with remote view capabilities, upgrade a number of our support staff with portable radio systems and bus cameras. We are thrilled with the upgrades to our school safety.
Finally, our Makerspace is in it's infancy planning stages. We are planning for many STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) Hands on learning experiences for our students. A Makerspace is quite simply a place where students can problem solve and work in groups to create, design and think outside of the box using their critical thinking skills to problem solve. This project was made possible by the generous donation of the Gustave Swanson's Estate and a donation from the Rotsch Family Foundation.
We wish all students and families a wonderful safe, successful school year!
