Wild Rose PTO Events/Programs
The Wild Rose PTO works hard to provide programs and events throughout the school year that improve the education, health and well-being of our students in addition to increasing family engagement.
We are always looking for new volunteers to help with our programs. If you are interested in helping, please email Lori Paul, Wild Rose Vice President at email@example.com
After School Enrichment - Month of February 2020
The ASE program takes place during the month of February immediately after school until 4:10pm, and provides students an opportunity to explore new skills. Popular classes include face painting, soccer, martial arts, pet care and spa day. Information will be sent home in December.
Art Volunteers in the Classroom (AVIC)
This program is designed to promote the appreciation of art in public schools. Each month, volunteers present a piece of art in his/her child's classroom. The goal is to help children learn how to look critically at a piece of art, imagine themselves in the picture or as the artist, share their insights, and then to work on a related project.
Bingo Nights - October 18, 2019 & March 19, 2020
Bingo nights are held in conjunction with book fairs. This fun family event features our very own Wild Rose teachers as bingo callers and card checkers! Bingo cards and concessions are sold at the event.
Kids love book fairs, and they provide an awesome opportunity to buy books for your home library while supporting Wild Rose, too! This year's book fairs will be on October 17-18, 2019; March 18-19, 2020 and May 15, 2020
DPTO (District Parent Teacher Organization)
A Wild Rose PTO representative attends district PTO meetings where they will learn what is going on with PTO's throughout the district, best PTO practices, and other pertinent D303 information.
Epic Air - May 2020
Wild Rose students, siblings and friends can "jump into summer" at this fun, private event. The event features a DJ, dodge ball, balloon drop, and more!
We love our PTO volunteers who help with keeping the exterior grounds of Wild Rose looking beautiful! This important job includes weeding, trimming, and planting/tending to seasonal containers/decor.
To show our teachers and staff how much we appreciate them, the PTO provides lunches/snacks/gifts around parent teacher conference times.
