Teacher Wish Lists
Are you considering getting a gift for your child(ren)'s teacher for the holidays? Look at their classroom wish lists to see the items they need to start the second half of the year off right! Please if you wish to donate items send them with your child to school or drop them off at the main office clearly labeled with the teacher's name.
Teachers everywhere often spend their own money to outfit their classrooms when supplies are needed. Let's take this opportunity to show our teachers how much we care about the job they are doing for our Wickham Wizards!
Volunteers Needed for continued support throughout the year
Wickham PTO is looking for parents/guardians willing to assist with a few more events throughout the year!
Teacher Appreciation Coordinator- NEED VOLUNTEER

Please click here to view open volunteer opportunities. The PTO Executive Board will provide direction, funding, historical information, marketing, and volunteer support for all events. You will not be left to figure it out all by yourself! Without volunteer support, we will not be able to offer these events. Please consider volunteering.
The Wizard Donation Drive
In lieu of the PTO asking students to participate in sales fundraisers (i.e. - selling wrapping paper, fruit, etc.), Wickham families elect to hold an annual donation drive. This fundraiser is called the Wizard Donation Drive.
Each year, based on the planned costs of enrichment activities for the coming year, the Executive Board provides a suggested amount for each family.
The suggested annual Donation Amount is: $75.00 (1st student) + $25.00 (per each additional student).
Why the suggested amount? By each family donating the suggested amount (or more), the Wickham PTO can fully fund all programming and achieve our goal of enriching the lives of ALL of our students, staff, and families.
Families may contribute via cash or check (made payable to Wickham PTO) and drop off at the Wickham Elementary Main Office or via our easy online donation form (see blue button to the right). Keep in mind that donation/contributions made to the PTO are tax-deductible. Although a suggested amount is provided, please know that any amount donated is greatly appreciated.
IMPORTANT NOTE - PLEASE READ:
The Textbook and Planner Fees (paid to the District via Powerschool) are NOT contributions to the PTO and are not part of the Wizard Donation Drive or any other PTO Fundraising activity. Any donations made to the PTO are separate from Fees owed to the District.
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.
