Step Up to Sixth

To help ease the transition from elementary to middle school and help our sixth graders get a head start on the new year, E.L. Wright Middle School will hold “Step Up to Sixth” on August 21, 2018 from 9 am to 12 pm.  We look forward to welcoming the newest members of our school family and allowing them the opportunity to meet the teachers, tour the campus, and engage in some activities to help them become more acclimated to the school.

All students will report to the gym.  If your child rides the bus to school, he or she will have the opportunity to ride their new middle school bus to and from school that day.  Our Transportation Department will use the information you provide, through the online registration process, to update bus routes for the 2018-2019 school year.  Bus routes are updated throughout the summer. Please check your route prior to “Step Up to Sixth” for the most up-to-date information by visiting  

If your child will be a car rider, please plan to drop him/her off at 8:45 am and pick him/her up at 12 pm.  All students are to be dropped off and picked up in the car rider line.

We look forward to meeting your student on August 21.
