Teacher's Classroom Wish List
We asked our teachers what items they wished for most for their classrooms and this list was created from their responses. Please select an item (or items) from the list and drop it off at the school before December 17- please label your item(s) with the grade to which you are giving it. All donations are optional AND anonymous.
Teachers everywhere often spend their own money to outfit their classrooms when supplies are needed. Isn't it great to know exactly what our teachers really want to help them out in their classroom? Let's take this opportunity to show them how much we care about the job they are doing for our Wickham Wizards!
Hy-Vee Reusable Bag Purchases to Benefit Wickham
During the month of December, purchase reusable bags at Crosspark Road Hy-Vee and Wickham will receive $1.00 for every My Heart Reusable Bag sold.
Reserve The Celebration Herky
Wickham Elementary has a large Herky dressed up like a wizard prominently displayed near the entry of our school. In years past we offered families the option to rent Herky for a day to display a message of celebration (birthday, half birthday, sporting event, holiday, etc.) for your student. We ask for a $10 donation for each day that you reserve to serve as a fundraiser for PTO.
We are excited to bring back this fun tradition with a few procedure changes that ensure we are following Iowa City Community Schools COVID policy.
