Wickham Chess Club
The Wickham Chess Club will meet on Friday mornings from 7:05 to 7:50 a.m. starting September 23. The club is limited to 30 participants due to space constraints. Please only sign your child up if they (not you!) are VERY EXCITED to be in the chess club. Registration is $50 per student, per year. Each family is required to help at one club meeting per child during the year (chess experience not required!). If you are unable to help, there will be an additional $20 per child registration fee so that we may hire others to assist.
To register your student please email our Chess Club Coordinator, Viviane Nixon at firstname.lastname@example.org she will follow up with more details about payment.

The Annual Wizard Donation Drive, is the main source of revenue for the PTO. This fundraiser is chosen in lieu of any sales-type fundraisers.
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.
These donations fund:
Books Supplies for classrooms including art, P.E., music, and counseling
Staff appreciation events
Clubs and field trips
Wickham Families may contribute via check (made payable to Wickham PTO and mailed to the Wickham office) or online through our website: www.wickhampto.org
PLEASE NOTE: The textbook and planner fees are paid separately to the School District and are NOT contributions to any PTO fundraising.
After two full years of no in-person events due to COVID we need to identify new volunteers willing to help with PTO events. The Wickham PTO provides vital monetary support for field trips, playground equipment, technology, classroom supplies and special educational opportunities such as Chess Club, Spanish Club and Science Fair. Without additional volunteer support, we will no longer be able to provide the funding and enrichment events that we have in the past. Please consider volunteering for a position during the 2022-2023 school year!
