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.

Q:  How can I join the PTSA?

A:  Information about joining Wilder PTSA is available on the school website at https://wilderptsa.ptoffice.com/store/

Q:  How can I get to know other parents?

A:  Become a member of the Wilder PTSA and you will have access to the school directory.

Q:  How do I find out what is going on at school?

A: Look for the weekly newsletters sent from the Wilder PTSA that are emailed every Monday. You can also check the Wilder PTSA website at https://wilderptsa.ptoffice.com/. 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 Co-Presidents 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.
