Check Your Bags!
This week, the Wildwood PGO starts one of its two major fundraisers of the year. Look for a letter in your child’s November book bag. With many unanticipated expenses so far, including new books for the library, we really need your donation. This fundraiser will culminate on #Giving Tuesday: December 1.
Please use the donate button at www.wildwoodpgo.com to make a contribution today, thank you!
November Book Deliveries and Pickup
This month students will exchange their October books and backpacks for a NEW backpack with NEW books!
IMPORTANT: You must return library books in your backpack to receive a new backpack** (unless this is your first month in the program).
Pick Up at Wildwood School: If you choose to pick up, come to the front doors of Wildwood on Wednesday, Nov. 18th or Thursday, 19th between 3:30 and 5:30. I will be there with some special guests you will be excited to see in person! Don’t forget your backpack to exchange.
Exciting news! I will be delivering to all the apartment complexes on Tuesday, November 17th in a SCHOOL BUS! If you chosedelivery and you live at the following apartment complexes, PLEASE come to the bus on Tuesday, Nov 17th at the listed time to exchange your backpack of books!

Please have your backpack ready and come out to greet the school bus if possible. If you will not be home at the listed time on Tuesday, please leave your October backpack in a safe and covered place (preferably by your door) so I know where to leave the new backpack. Teachers will know that you may leave class to retrieve your backpack on this day!
Neighborhood Deliveries (not the apartment complexes): We have 5 dedicated drivers who will contact your family and let you know when to be ready for the backpack exchange. Thank you PGO volunteers!
Some fun facts: 2,500 books were checked out in October. Books were delivered to over 130 students in October. In November 294 students will receive books! **Not done with all your books? Please return the books you are done with in the backpack and keep what you are still reading! If you have any questions please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy Reading, Susan Wells
