September 2018

 

Dear Wildwood School Parents/Guardians,

 

Welcome to the 2018-19 school year at Wildwood School.  We would like to introduce the Wildwood School Parent Group (WSPG) and tell you a little about ourselves.

 

Throughout the school year, you will receive emails from WSPG providing information on upcoming events, and at times, asking for your support.  Any assistance you can provide is greatly appreciated.

 

Some of our responsibilities include:

 

  • Organize Staff appreciation events throughout the year

  • Coordinate volunteers for School events, such as picture day, Halloween Parade, and Veteran’s Day Breakfast

  • Host Fundraising Events

  • Provide opportunities to network with other families, get information, and make connections that may help you at home.

 

We are asking for $5.00 per family to assist with covering the costs of our activities.  Last year, with your support, we were able to fund candy for the Halloween Parade, monthly Staff Coffee, food for Veteran’s and Dessert Day and gift certificates for Staff/TA Appreciation Day. 

 

  • Please make checks payable to “Wildwood School Parent Group”

  • Label your envelope “WSPG, Main Office Curry Road, Attention Rosemary Vara”

 

Thank you in advance for assistance.

 

Along with Wildwood Director of Education, Bill LeForestier, we look forward to a productive and successful school year!

 

Please contact us at the following email addresses if you have ideas, questions, or would like to offer your help:
