Throughout the School Year

Q:  What is the PTSA and why should I join/volunteer/donate?

A:  The Wilder PTSA is an organization of Wilder parents that work closely with the school administration and staff to support the educational and extracurricular experience of all our students. Initially PTAs existed only to advocate for children's rights in education and healthcare initiatives. Today, due to severe funding deficiencies from the state, PTSAs have taken on many of the responsibilities for providing the "extras" a school offers - classes, programs, school equipment, classroom funds, etc.

A:  Information about joining Wilder PTSA is available on our website at: Why Join the PTSA? - wilderptsa (ptoffice.com)

A: Look for the weekly newsletters sent from the Wilder PTSA that are emailed every Tuesday; check the Wilder PTSA website; and follow the Wilder PTSA Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/WilderElementaryPTSA/


Q:  What if I have other questions?

A:  ASK!! The office is extremely helpful and if they don't know the answer they will find someone who does. Also, ask the PTSA President or Welcome Committee chair. Their contact information is available on the website. There are no dumb questions and chances are your question has been asked/answered before or it will come up again.
