WICKHAM PARENT TEACHER ORGANIZATION (PTO)
The primary role of the Wickham PTO is to support the enrichment of all students and to create an inclusive community for Wickham families.
We are made up of parents, family members, teachers, and administrators who are committed to delivering environments and activities that nourish the whole student and create a more inclusive school community.
An Executive Board consisting of a President, two Vice Presidents, Secretary, and Treasurer are elected each spring for the following academic year.
Any parent or guardian of a child attending Wickham or any staff member of Wickham is automatically a member of the PTO.
PTO Meetings take place the First Tuesday of each month from 6:30-7:30pm in the Wickham library.
We accomplish this very important goal by:
Encouraging parental involvement in the Wickham environment and fostering strong relationships between parents, teachers and the wider community.
Organizing enrichment activities, special programs, student clubs, and family events.
Providing support according to the needs of our teachers, staff, and families.
Coordinating fundraising events in order to purchase various building and classroom needs -- much of which is not funded by the school district.
The PTO provides the organizational structure and financial support for:
Student Activities & Programs such as the Science Fair, Chess Club, Wickham's Got Talent, Lego League; Field Trips, Visiting Authors and artists
Family & Community Events and Programs such as the Fall Fun Fair, Family Movie Night, Taco Dinner & Bingo Night
Teacher & Staff Support such as staff appreciation events, classroom assistance and technology enhancements.
