The Wilder PTO Needs You!  

As we wrap up the school year, the Wilder VIPS (Volunteers In Public Schools) team is busy planning for next year.  We are in need of a few individuals to chair PTO committees in the 2018-2019 school year.

Listed below are the open positions for 2018/2019.  Some positions are perfect for volunteers with lots of free time, whereas others are better suited for volunteers with limited time.  We’ve also listed a brief description of each position. Please let us know if you would like more information about any of these opportunities.  We can send you a full description and connect you with the current position chair.

Please help keep Wilder the amazing school we know and love!
