Wolverine Weekly

Sunday, August 15-Newsletter for the Wilder Community

Greetings Wolverine Pack!

Monday, August 16, is our first PTSA School Spirit Day! Please bring your family to California Pizza Kitchen for some great food. You can dine at any time between 11am and 10pm. Please let them know that you are supporting the Wilder PTSA and 20% of your bill goes to the organization! See the invite below!

This week I learned that due to the laptop refresh, devices will not be deployed until after the first week of school. This lack of technology access creates an opportunity for us to focus on team building, social-emotional lessons, hands-on exploration, content-area reading, and school spirit during the first 3 days of school! How exciting! Please drop off your laptop to Wilder if you have not already done so!


I added a few new dates to the school calendar which is included at the end of this newsletter. Tomorrow I will share the pizza order form for the Eat & Greet Open House scheduled for August 31! This will be a great opportunity to meet new families and to help your child establish relationships. We are going to make wonderful memories this school year! 😊


Until next time,

Mrs. Broudy
