GDW Celebrates The 100th Day of School!

Today, Gary D. Wright Elementary School students celebrated the 100th day of school!  When walking throughout our hallways and classrooms, I could just see that our students seemed much older and wiser!  Many of them dressed to impress by selecting outfits and hair colors that showcased their more mature look!  Students also celebrated the day be engaging in a variety of literacy and math activities featuring the number 100.  They created a 100th Day quilt and even enjoyed a special snack that featured ten groups of ten delicious ingredients!

Nick's Pizza Night and Candy Bar Bingo

This week, our PTO organized some fun-filled events, including Nick's Pizza Night and Candy Bar Bingo.  It was such an honor to have Mr. Gary D. Wright himself join us for dinner and fun at Nick's Pizza!  During that evening, it was so rewarding to witness our students personally thanking Mr. Wright and letting him know how much they love our school!

Candy Bar Bingo was another successful event for our wildcat families!  With popcorn, bingo, candy, and our wildcat families, we had all the makings of a fun-filled family night!
