A Happy Campus

Thank you to all of the Wildwood VIPs who joined us for lunch on campus this past Friday. Our students were thrilled to have you there, and the vibe on campus was uniquely special. We send a BIG Tiger ROAR to our office staff (Karen Meyer, Susan Hollander, and Mimi Arevalo) and the volunteers for making the preregistration and check-in process so efficient.

Our next VIP lunch is scheduled for Friday, May 12. Please save the date and make plans to have another VIP (or the same one...your choice) join us on campus for that special day.

Enjoy these photos below from the event, and remember to email your photos from this and any other school event to our yearbook coordinator, Sarah, at sarahbsheppard@hotmail.com.

JogAThon Call For Volunteers

We need your help! Our JogAThon is our biggest fundraiser of the year AND the most fun time for our students. We need your help to make it happen. Our JogAThon Committee will hold its first meeting on Friday, January 20th after drop-off in the office. While Jog isn't until April 6th it takes LOTS of planning and teamwork (plus we do lots of fun things for the kids leading up to the actual big day!). Not sure if you can help or want more info? Join us on the 20th or message Sarah Casey at sarahbsheppard@Hotmail.com.

Come be a part of our PTA JogAThon Committee!

We Need Your Photos!

Did you take any great first-day or event pictures? Photos from music or chorus performances? Your kiddos dressing up for Red Ribbon Week?

We would love to have them for the yearbook!

Please email your photos to Sarah at sarahbsheppard@hotmail.com.

CVUSD Invention Convention

All 3rd-5th grade students are invited to participate in CVUSD’s fifth Invention Convention sponsored by Student Support Services. Invention Convention is a showcase where students display inventions that they have created. Students may work alone or in a group of 2-4 students to identify a problem to solve, come up with a solution that can be invented, create the invention and then share it at a convention. This is a great opportunity for students who are creative, curious, who enjoy tinkering and innovating, and who are adept at solving problems!

To register for the informational Zoom webinar on February 2 from 6:00-7:00pm, click HERE.
