After school enrichment classes are expanding at Wilder! We have worked hard to line up some great classes for this spring. Classes start the week of April 15th and registration opens Tuesday, March 12th at 7am.

Important Notes:

  • Volunteer chaperones are required to run classes. We are asking for two chaperones per class. The chaperone’s child will receive a reserved spot in the class in addition to a discount on the class price. If you would like to be a chaperone, please email [email protected] ASAP and BEFORE you register your child. See the Volunteer Chaperone Policy for a full list of responsibilities.
  • Classes will be filled on a first come first serve basis. Once the class is full you can add your student to the waitlist and we will contact you if a space becomes available.
  • If a class is cancelled in entirety due to lack of volunteer chaperones, low attendance or other unforeseen circumstances, a full refund will be granted.
  • We do not want anyone to miss out on after school enrichment classes. Wilder Elementary PTSA offers scholarships based on financial need. Please email the school counselor, Lexi Kimbell, at [email protected] for more information.
