School supplies will be offered in complete kits. One item to purchase per child, and it will be sent directly to the classroom. Families will have the option to pre-order their kit via the online store before the supply sale, or purchase it the day of the sale.

In preparation of the sale, we need adult volunteers on Friday, August 4th to inventory and organize supplies.

We will be assembling after all orders are in, and we need a crew to do it! We are looking for adult volunteers to assemble and deliver the kits to the classrooms on Monday, August 14th.

PLEASE CONSIDER volunteering just a bit of your time to one of the open positions.  Your time and efforts would be much appreciated by all.  There are many volunteer openings the day of the sale for high schoolers looking for volunteer hours.  THANK YOU!

If you have any questions, please email Karen Robertson at smutexas@yahoo.com

Wickliffe PTO will be using a new website for all Parent Communications, Volunteers, and  School Supply Sales this year (all supplies will still purchased sourced through a local business).  Your family will need to register on a new website prior to purchasing this year’s school supplies (online or in person – this is faster and easier if you do it at home prior to the sale if you intend to buy on August 10th).  If you did not get an email asking for your directory information to be updated, please review the document below to register.

The website will also host the new Wickliffe Student/Family Directory, but you DO NOT have to share any personal information with the PTO or the rest of the Wickliffe Community.  Please contract us at wickliffepto@gmail.com if you have any questions about this.

Happy Spring! Each MWF we are looking for 2-3 adults to run Walking Club for our kids during lunch recess from 11-12. They didn’t get a lot of Indoor Walking Club this winter, so I expect they will be excited to get back at it! The kids walk/run laps around the field and check in with you at every lap. After 4 laps they’ve walked a mile and can pick out a foot charm for their chain. They’re so excited to do this great program that is funded by PTO… we just need people to run it! Sign up with a friend and get a little visiting in at the same time!
If you need to cancel or have any questions – please text Karen Robertson @ 614-946-3052. Thank you!
