Wilmot Spelling Bee

Peachjar Flyers - Connecting Our District With Our Community

Starting in 2023, we are happy to announce a partnership with Peachjar, a digital flyer service to connect our families with educational and community-building opportunities.

You will receive a weekly email from Peachjar on Wednesdays showcasing programs and events (both in school and from outside organizations) that may be of interest to you. All of the flyers will also be located on the district and school web pages.

To learn more about our approval and content guidelines, visit the Peachjar section on our website.
