Spring Fundraiser

Our PTA Spring Fundraiser is over! Unfortunately, no late orders can be accepted. The pizza kits will be delivered and available for pick up on April 18th from Noon-1:30pm in the MPR. This day is also a MINIMUM DAY. If your child has sold many items, please make arrangements to pick up your child and their items from school that day. We are not responsible for any kits remaining; we do not have space on our site to store items not picked up. All unclaimed items will be donated to a local food bank.

Thank you!

Kindergarten Age Requirement: The kindergarten age cutoff for 2014-2015 is September 1. Children must turn 5 on or before September 1 to be enrolled in kindergarten for the 2014-2015 school year.

TK Age Requirement:  If a student turns 5 on or between September 2 and December 2, they can register for TK. Intra and Inter district transfer polices apply to grades TK-6.

Important Reminder from the Principal

Wildwood Parents and Guardians,

This is an important reminder regarding after-school pick up of students.

There is no student supervision after school. All students must be picked up by 3:15 PM.

Students are not to wait for pick up in front of Green Valley High School or the Student Services building on Holmes Street past this time. They must report to the school office in order to contact their parent/guardian for pick up information.

Students are expected to be respectful of other people's property when coming to and from school and not loiter or damage property.

Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
Mrs. Hudec
