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.

Northwest Junior High Track Uniform Fundraiser
Students who attend Wickham Elementary are districted to attend Northwest Junior High (NWJH). Three years ago NWJH adopted the Trojan mascot to better align with the larger West High Trojan community. As time and resources are available NWJH is updating athletic uniforms to replace the former Vikings logo. The basketball uniforms have been updated but several sports still remain.
The next priority for modern uniforms is for the 225 athletes who will participate in the Northwest track program this spring. At $35 per uniform, the cost for replacing all of these uniforms is out of reach for Northwest operating and activity funds.
So far we have raised $7,000 of our $9,000 goal. We are reaching out to Wickham families who will soon have students at NWJH to see if you may be able to support our initiative. We hope you will consider a gift of at least $25.
Please complete the donation by choosing the Northwest Junior High PSTO campaign in the drop-down box on the ICCSD Foundation’s Ways to Give website at https://iccsdfoundation.org/choose-a-campaign/
