- Deliveries be made on Monday, February 14 only.
- All deliveries will need to be sent to the office. We will deliver items to the classroom at the end of the day to reduce the amount of disruptions to the classrooms.
- If your child is riding the bus home, the Transportation Department will not allow students to ride the bus if they have glass items or large balloons.

These positions are currently open and we would love someone within our Wilder Family to join our team and support the learning environment here at Wilder.
IN THE NEWS
PTA INFORMATION & UPDATES
Valentine Box Bash
We are excited to host our first ever Valentine Box Bash! Students will bring boxes and decorate them at the event. To pull this off, PTA is requesting donations of supplies & embellishments, as well as volunteers the evening of the event to help supervise the stations (stamping, painting, stickers, etc).
Items are due by January 31. You may drop them off on Janelle Patterson's porch (3260 E Seneca, right along back door car line) or in the marked box in the Wilder office.
Join PTA - It's Not Too Late!
One thing that makes Wilder special is the community feel it has, due in large part to the cooperation between Wilder and the PTA. Signing up to join PTA does not automatically volunteer you for anything, but it does connect you with others at Wilder to help grow and strengthen our school community. Please consider joining if you haven't already.
