Sunday, September 27
I hope this email finds you winding down from a restful weekend with your family and friends. Please be reminded that this is a 3-day weekend! Monday, September 28, is a student holiday! When we return on September 29, all middle school students will follow a new schedule. This new schedule is a division initiative to help students achieve balance with independent assignments and to reduce screen time. Please continue providing feedback to me and the division. We are here to serve your family!
Wishing you a great week 4 of learning as we say hello to October!
Clubs and Activities!
Happy National Hispanic Heritage Month!
Happy Hispanic Heritage Month which began on September 15th and concludes on October 15th! This year’s theme is “Hispanic Americans: A History of Serving our Nation.” During this month, we honor and recognize the important contributions and influence of Hispanic Americans in history, culture, and achievements in the United States and all over the world. Since Wilder is preparing scholars to be global citizens, many students are enrolled in Spanish so that they can become fluent in speaking and writing the language. Our school will honor Hispanic Heritage Month with a variety of salutes on the morning announcements, through activities planned by the Equity and Diversity Team, and in instructional activities in the Social Studies classrooms. At Wilder, we celebrate all cultures’ similarities and honor diversity!

Hello Wolverine Family!
We hope that you all are well and miss seeing you all! We also hope that you and your scholars are settling into a new rhythm with virtual learning.
While we can’t do anything in the way of events and in-person support for Wilder, we are brainstorming how we can best serve our Wilder community at this time.
We also are prepping and working hard to ensure we are in good standing as a PTA so when in-person learning begins again we can hit the ground running. There are few things we need to accomplish to be ready:
- A Membership – Join us so that we can vote and conduct business and continue to support our scholars - Click here to join. https://wilderptsa.org/get-involved/#join
- Complete our financial review and have membership vote to approve
- Propose a budget and have membership vote to approve
