Parent Organization Committees
Whether you're a book fan, an environmentalist, or an event planner, the Wildwood Parent Organization (WWPO) has a host of committees that welcome your talents.
Angel. This committee coordinates efforts to support and offer services to Wildwood families in times of need. Volunteers may deliver meals to families, provide lunches for students, or assist with rides to school and after-school activities.
Annual Giving Volunteer. Volunteers serve a critical role in ensuring a successful campaign for the Wildwood Fund by engaging with fellow parents, participating in phone-a-thons and drive activities, and encouraging robust community participation. For more information on becoming a Wildwood Fund volunteer, please contact Danielle Lesner, director of annual giving.
Athletics Planning (Includes Spirit Wear and Spirit Day). Advance the school’s K-12 athletics program by providing volunteer involvement for teams, events, and communications to build awareness of and involvement in Wildwood athletics. This committee also coordinates marketing and sales of spirit merchandise (school logo t-shirts, sweatshirts) and helps develop new products. Volunteers help sell spirit merchandise and assist with School Spirit Day. Help advance our Wildwood Wolves pride!
Brunch Club. In appreciation of our teachers’ efforts at conference time, parents provide a light breakfast on conference day mornings at both campuses. This committee helps with set-up, clean-up, or organization of the food from parents.
College Counseling Hospitality (middle and upper campus). Volunteers provide food and refreshments for various college information events that are held for parents and students.
Dinner for 12 Strangers/Apps for 50. This popular Wildwood tradition is designed to bring diverse groups of parents, faculty, and staff together in either an intimate setting. Dinners and appetizer parties are hosted simultaneously by Wildwood families.
Elementary Yearbook (elementary campus). Volunteers help bring to life, through photos and print, the magical memories that occur each school year to produce a quality elementary school yearbook.
Faculty and Staff Appreciation. From menu to décor to set-up and clean-up, parents help organize this annual appreciation luncheon for faculty and staff.
GardenPalooza (elementary campus). This popular family-friendly event celebrates Mother Nature through hands-on learning activities, games, and more. Help plan the various art and garden projects, coordinate food and beverages, and support the afternoon’s activities as needed.
Grade Parent (middle and upper campus). Grade parents are a resource for new and returning families. This volunteer is a friendly "go-to" person who fields questions about school life, helps navigate all things Wildwood, and is a visible and important guide for families, new and old.
Jog-a-Thon (elementary campus). A beloved tradition at Wildwood, parents help produce all aspects of the event from collecting pledges and creating décor to managing vendors, volunteers, and counting laps.
Literary Events. We love books! This group organizes a Book Swap in the spring, author visits, and other literary events throughout the year.
Lost and Found (elementary campus). Volunteers help year-round to reunite owners with their lost items, helping to organize the Lost and Found and find new homes for unclaimed items by organizing charity donations.
Parent Multicultural Collaborative (PMC). This committee plays an important role in supporting and advancing Wildwood's multicultural community and establishes a forum where parents can learn about themselves and others through the exploration of issues related to multiculturalism. Volunteers help with the Families of Children of Color Picnic, Multicultural Community Dialogues, and Multicultural Family Story Night.
Room Parent (elementary campus). Room parents are a resource for new and returning families. This volunteer is a friendly "go-to" person who fields questions about school life, helps navigate all things Wildwood, and is a visible and important guide for families, new and old.
Visual Arts (elementary campus). This committee acts as liaisons between the visual arts team and WWPO. Volunteers will assist with exhibitions, installations, and overall studio organization.
Winter Solstice Breakfast. Parents are invited to share breakfast items and baked goods celebrating their family’s cultural history in order to “break bread” and build community. Volunteers are needed to cook, bake, and help with set-up and clean-up.
