One of the most popular Wright activities for 3rd and 4th-graders is the pen pal exchange program with Rockwell Collins. For the past 17 years students have shared their interests, hobbies and dreams with a counterpart across town. Teachers say the outreach program shows students a life outside of the school walls and the Rockwell staff find a new friend that they may be able to get interested in science. The pairs do get to meet when Wright hosts the Rockwell team for a celebration and science activities.

Wright Elementary staff know the importance of having a strong relationship with students. Before the school year begins staff take a bus trip around the neighborhood to meet new families and to stay connected with current ones. The relationship then continues throughout the year when students are greeted as they come in each day.
