No Hassle Fundraising

No Hassle Fundraising

Make a Donation. Parents and extended family members can make monetary donations to Wilton at anytime. Make checks payable to Wilton Elementary. Donations can be earmarked for general purposes or a specific area of school (technology, playground repairs, etc.)
 
Donate items needed in individual classrooms or specials programs (Art, PE,  Media Center). See individual teachers for suggested items or visit our web page for specific items requested.
 

Use rewards cards when shopping.

Many retailers link rewards cards to schools and make donations. For example, Target, Food Lion, Harris Teeter, and Kroger all have these programs. When shopping, a percentage of what you already spend could be coming back to Wilton's PTO to support our students. Be aware, you may have to re-link your retail card each school year. Link your cards either at the store or online in August. How can you know if your purchases are really benefitting Wilton? Look at the bottom of your receipt or ask the clerk at the register the next time you check out. 

Collect reward points from items you purchase.

 Wilton collects Box Tops for Education, Campbell's Labels for Education, Coke Rewards Points, and ink cartridges. Turn these items into the office and we'll turn them into money and supplies for our school.

Get Involved At Wilton Elementary! 

 

To volunteer for any of the opportunities below, complete the volunteer form on our website.

 

Be a morning car greeter; open car doors in car pool line. We need volunteers (parents/grandparents) who could commit to certain days during the week. Volunteers are needed 7:45-8:00 am. Students you bring to school can wait in the gym until the first bell rings. It's a great way to meet the Wilton Wildcats and help get their day off to a great start! Please contact the office if you are able to volunteer.

 

Volunteer at the Safe School Desk in the front lobby of the school. Safe School Desk volunteers welcome visitors and volunteers to the school. Volunteers also help teachers by performing different tasks or reading with students. We're lucky to have this at our school to help keep our students safe! Substitutes for Safe School Volunteers are also needed. There are two shifts each day (8:30-11:00am and 11:00am-2:30pm). Please contact Kathy Watkins if you able to volunteer. 

 

Join a Committee. There are several PTO committees at Wilton. Committee involvement varies due to amount of projects and activities. 

  • School Beautification and Grounds: Committee Chair Needed - This committee works with school personnel to identify areas in need of improvement both inside and outside the school and creates opportunities for improvement through parent help/skills/business contributions and/or connections, and holds school clean up days 3-4 times a year.
  • Spirit Committee: Committee Chair, Lisa Whitt - Help promote monthly Wildcat Spirit Days on the last Friday of each month, organize teacher/staff appreciation days and events, orchestrate a monthly snack in teacher lounge, help keep teacher lounge organized and supplied, decorate lobby/entrance to school seasonally.
  • Box Tops Collections: Committee Chair, Christine Harding - Promotes collections of Box Tops for Education, Campbells Soup labels, and Coke Rewards Points. Sorts and bundles labels and prepares for shipping. Provides contests and incentives for collections and works with PTO on prizes to be awarded. 

Volunteer at a School Event or Help with a Fundraiser.  Wilton's PTO sponsors many events during the school year and volunteers are needed to make them a success. Information on events and what help is needed will be made available as the year progresses via flyers sent home with your child, the parent email network, our webpage,  Twitter Feed, and phone messages.
