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.
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!
Breakfast 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 or a large cocktail party. 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-u, parents help organize this annual appreciation luncheon for faculty and staff.

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.
Literacy Events. We love books! This group organizes a Book Swap in the spring, and author visits and other literacy events throughout the year. They also help with decorations, set-up, breakdown, sales, and much more.
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 and Multicultural Family Story Night.
