Registration 

http://wilderptsa.ourschoolpages.com/Program

Registrations are on a first come first served basis. There will be no lotteries held. When classes are full, registrations will no longer be accepted. If you wish to be put on a waitlist, please email Kendra Bohm for AM classes or Melissa Mazor for PM classes. 

When registering, you will be required to pay by a credit card in order to complete your registration. The link will be displayed to the Wilder PTSA store to sign up. If you are unable to pay online via credit card, please contact Kendra Bohm for assistance.  Please note that registrations by check will only be processed at the end of the day they are received. If the classes are full at that time, the checks will be returned. If seeking a scholarship, application must be turned in at least one week prior to class start date in order to be processed. Please contact Kathy Conrad for more information.

 

Class Chaperone

All AM and PM enrichment classes require a volunteer chaperone. Due to insurance requirements the volunteer MUST be a PTSA Member and have completed the LWSD background check.  

One volunteer per enrichment course is ideal. The volunteer that chaperones all class sessions will be eligible, at the end of the course, for a tuition refund for one student. One week after registration opens an email soliciting PTSA volunteer chaperones will be sent to all families enrolled in classes that have met their minimum student requirement. Interested parties will have 24 hours to respond to the email. In the case that there is more than one person interested in becoming the PTSA volunteer chaperone for any given class, names will be entered into a drawing. The names of volunteers will be selected out of a hat by members of the Wilder Elementary School staff.

**If there is no PTSA member that is willing to volunteer to be the sole chaperone for the entire session, the duty may be split 50/50 with another PTSA member and both volunteer chaperones will receive a 50% tuition refund upon completion of the class session. If more than two PTSA members are interested in this opportunity, the names will be entered into a drawing and two names will be selected out of a hat by members of the Wilder Elementary School staff.

 

Chaperone Procedures

  • Please sign in at the front office before arriving to the enrichment class location 15 minutes prior to class beginning.
  • Chaperones are required to stay until class has finished and the last child has been signed out and has left the room.
  • Before leaving school grounds, please remember to sign out in the front office.
  • If the volunteer chaperone is unable to be present for a class and a replacement PTSA member cannot be found by 5pm the day before class is scheduled, the class will be cancelled.
  • If the chaperone of the day does not show for class, the class may not continue. All students will be taken to the front of the school and a replacement chaperone will try to be located. If no one is available, the class will be cancelled.
  • If you take on the PTSA volunteer chaperone position and cannot make a class, you are required to find a suitable (PTSA member with valid background check) to take your place. If you need further assistance, please contact Kendra Bohm or Melissa Mazor

 

AM Drop Off Guidelines

  • Drop off students between 7:50 – 7:55am at the Parent Drop off in front of Wilder ES.  On Bad Weather days, please walk your child to the front doors of Wilder ES and sign your child in with the Volunteer Chaperone.
  • If you arrive after 7:55am, you must walk your student to their AM Enrichment class location.
  • All students must be signed into class by an accompanying adult.  (If you do not sign your child in with the volunteer chaperone, it is the parent/guardian's responsibility to make sure the student gets to class)
  • There is no parking in the teacher parking lot.
  • There is no cutting through the teacher parking lot as this is a safety issue with teachers arriving for school. Please walk around on designated walkways.
  • Please try to arrive on time to be courteous of the instructor and the other students.
  • In the event of a vendor absence, class will be cancelled.  Parents and/or emergency contacts will be notified and all students will need to be picked up.

 

PM Pick Up Guidelines

  • Please pick up your student from the class location ON TIME.
  • Students will not be released without a parent signature on the sign out sheet.
  • There is no parking in the teacher parking lot.
  • There is no cutting through the teacher parking lot as this is a safety issue with teachers leaving school grounds. Please walk around on designated walkways.
  • You are responsible for making sure that your child is picked up ON TIME.  If this becomes an ongoing issue, you may be asked to withdraw your child from the course.  No refund will be given.  (Please read below regarding Late Pick-up Procedures)
  • In the event of a vendor absence, class will be cancelled.  Parents and/or emergency contacts will be notified and all students will need to be picked up.

 

Late Pick-up Procedures

Please pick up your child on time.  In the case that a child is not picked up on time here are the steps our PM Enrichment Chaperone Volunteer will take:

  • After 20 min, the chaperone will phone parent(s) using the phone number(s) on file.  (Please make sure that all of your contact information is current in Wilder's "Our School Pages" website)
  • If no parent(s) can be reached, the chaperone will call the emergency contact on file.
  • If the child has not been picked up within 1 hour of class ending, the chaperone has permission to call the Police for assistance.

 

***We have a 2 - Strike Policy for late pickup.  After two late pick-ups of 20 minutes or more, the PM Enrichment VP’s has the right to remove the student from the PM Enrichment program without refund.
