Jog-A-Thon Success!

"Full STEAM Ahead" was the theme for this year's Jog-A-Thon, and our fundraising and culminating Jog event lived up to its name. This past Thursday, the skies were blue (along with some of our hair), the smiles were bright, and community spirit was strong on our campus.

Spring is a time for new growth and opportunity, and the $65,835.25 raised by our collective efforts will help Wildwood provide engaging and innovative learning opportunities for our students in the days ahead.

Join me in sending a BIG Tiger ROAR to our PTA Jog-A-Thon Committee and the many families, volunteers, and staff members who organized and contributed to this year's signature fundraiser. Well done, Tiger Family!

Take some time this Spring Break to celebrate, relax, and enjoy the beauty around us. You've earned it!

P.E. Footwear

Please remember to send your students to school with appropriate footwear on days when they have P.E. Our P.E. teachers are reporting that the number of students who show up to P.E. classes with inappropriate footwear has been growing, and we want all of our Tigers to participate in P.E. fully and safely. Thank you!

Honoring our Past - Celebrating our Present - Anticipating our Future

As part of our 50th year celebration, we decided to bring back our Wildwood School Song. Students and staff sing this song together with pride at the end of every Pep Rally. Enjoy watching it below.
It's pep rally day! If you haven't heard it yet, check out our Wildwood spirit sing sung by students and staff! | By Wildwood Elementary School | Facebook
