Teacher & Staff Wishlists 2016-2017

2016-2017 Wishlist

Dear Wildwood Community:  Let’s Support Our Teachers!

I’m Jasper, volunteering with the Parent Guardian Organization (PGO), and each year, we ask teachers and staff to let us know what they could use.

Please consider donating any of the items below, or check with your class-parent and/or teacher if there may be other ways you could help.

Note to teachers:  To make additions / changes, feel free to email me at wildwood.wishlist@gmail.com or 503-890-3200.
