Wizard Donation Drive
Wizard Donation Drive is happening now. Please remember this is for ALL STUDENTS (hybrid and online). Please participate in our primary fundraiser this year.
Remember: A Wickham Water Bottle will be given to all your Wickham students if you donate ANY amount before October 1.
If you order anything from Amazon, please consider registering with Amazon Smile. All you have to do is select Wickham Elementary PTO as your designated charity and a portion of all your purchases will be donated to the school. Prices, delivery, etc. does not change.. Amazon simply makes a donation to the school based on your purchases.
No more clipping boxes and sending them to school (although if you have some left, please send them in).
Download the Box Top App to your phone.
Scan all your receipts (within 14 days of sale) and if you purchased an eligible item, money is automatically put in Wickham's account.
So easy and can work on online receipts (i.e. Hy-Vee Online) too.

The Annual Wizard Donation Drive, is the main source of revenue for the PTO (this is especially true this year). This fundraiser is chosen in lieu of any sales-type fundraisers. Wizard Donation Drive applies to all students. The suggested amount per family is $75 for the first student, and $25 for each additional student. Although this is the suggested amount, any donation is greatly appreciated.
Wickham Families may contribute via check (made payable to Wickham PTO and mailed to the Wickham office) or online through our website:
If you make your donation before September 15, you will receive a special Wickham Elementary Wizard water bottle for each of your students – while supplies last! Contactless delivery will be arranged.
PLEASE NOTE: The textbook and planner fees are paid separately to the School District and are NOT contributions to any PTO fundraising.
Our PTO supports the enrichment of all students at Wickham Elementary. We do this by providing the organizational structure and financial support for:
Student Activities & Programs such as the Science Fair, Chess Club, Wickham's Got Talent, Lego League; school field trips, visiting authors and artists
Family & Community Events and Programs such as the Back to School Social, Fall Fun Fair, Family Movie Night, and the End of Year Picnic
Teacher & Staff Support such as staff appreciation events, classroom assistance and technology enhancement
In order to provide these services to our school community, we need parent volunteers for the roles listed below during the 2019-20 school year. Many roles will come with notes from committee members of previous years, and the PTO can help when needed. You might consider signing up for a committee with a friend or two, or a group of neighbors!
If you are willing to volunteer any of your time, please contact Caren Tracy at email@example.com.
