The sun came out on Halloween along with more than 100 trick-or-treaters from the surrounding community to Wright Tech’s ‘Tech or Treat’ event.
Themed displays created by staff and students lined the walkway leading to the back entrance of the building. Children strolled along the sidewalk stopping to take pictures with students dressed in costumes ranging from Superman to undersea princesses. Bubble and fog machines whirled as little ones scooped up candy from the “Robot Junkyard”, “Zombie Hospital”, and “King Kong vs. Godzilla in Tokyo” dioramas.
Games and a paint-a-pumpkin station filled the bus loop where, nearby, a DJ spun a mix of Halloween favorites under the watchful eye of a giant spider clinging from the side of the JM Wright Tech building, which abuts Scalzi Park in Stamford. Refreshments were made and sold by Culinary and Hospitality students. The event, led by Art Teacher Karen Harris, was designed to provide a family-oriented, Covid-friendly event for the greater Stamford community.
Dr. Justin Lowe, new principal to Wright Tech, also noted that the event was to showcase the campus, staff, and students of the technical high school ahead of the start of 8th grade recruitment and admissions season. Wright Tech recruits from Stamford and surrounding towns, such as Wilton, Westport, Darien, New Canaan, Greenwich, and Norwalk for 9 Trade areas. More information is under the Admissions tab of this website.
