Parent Teacher Association (PTA)
The Wilson PTA serves Wilson Elementary by supporting our positive school culture, encouraging volunteerism, and funding many school functions and programs. These include: artist-in-residence program (such as tie-dye shirts, Majestic drama classes, clay, and paper-mache puppets), special school assemblies, the Volunteer Center, craft night, the dance of the decades, back-to-school picnic, field day, variety night, family literacy night, turn-off TV week, kindergarten social, staff appreciation, and a carnival if we can find a coordinator this year. Programs, supplies, and activities that we fund (but don’t organize) include the knowledge fair, the Wildcat Trail, the summer reading program, safety patrol appreciation, interesting periodicals for Kids, library books, school supplies for students-in-need, and Wildcat copying/printing. We also supplement the school’s budget by providing funds for classroom technology, classroom supplies, teacher conferences, and special teacher requests. Fundraising activities to support these programs include a direct donation drive, the annual Fun Run, Wilson Dine Outs, and the Scrip Program.
