THANK YOU WILDER All Stars!
On behalf of the Wilder staff and students, thank you so much for your generous support through donations and volunteer time at the annual Silent Auction. Your giving has supported your children, our teachers, and our resources in many ways:
- Donating approximately $30,000 towards our fund-a-need project of technology purchases
- Contributing to our weighted staffing process to ensure quality programming
- Grade level budget support for class resources
On Saturday, March 16 many of you showed your “team” spirit by attending the silent auction. This single event prepares us to financially meet student needs during the 2013/14 school year. During the live auction, all participants were challenged to support our “fund-a-need” item. You definitely “hit it out of the ballpark” with $32,000 committed to future technology purchases. As a staff we will develop an implementation plan for new technology to support innovation, collaboration and integration in all classrooms. While the overall auction dollar amount is still being counted, we are well on our way to top $120,000 (stay tuned for final counts). The silent auction committee will continue to take your donations and provide information for a few items still open for bidding.
I would be negligent if I did not share a hearty thank you to all of the volunteers who spent hours upon hours planning, organizing, securing donations, setting up, creating decorations, and all the help in between. Amy Krza did an amazing job of overseeing the event as the chairperson, working throughout the entire school year to ensure its success. “SCOOOORRRRE!”
Whether you contributed during the silent auction or you have supported Wilder through the Direct Giving Campaign this year, it all goes to PTO to support our school throughout the year. Your volunteer time is also a rich donation to our school, we appreciate you giving your time to maintain the library, provide small group support, or contributing to meals for teachers. The staff, student and parent partnerships make us a unique community continuing to thrive.
Once again, THANK YOU, YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!
