The Wilkes School depends upon the generous support of our constituents. Tuition alone does not cover the total costs of education, and we are grateful for the contributions of current and former parents and guardians, grandparents, alumni, faculty and staff, board members, and friends. Your gifts support the School’s programs, help recruit and retain its faculty, maintain its facilities, and provide financial aid.
Parents/guardians sponsor activities such as faculty appreciation breakfasts, the Children’s Holiday Shop and the annual Spring Fair. They assist with special events such as Grandparents’ Day and the annual pancake breakfast. In addition to their tireless efforts in planning and orchestrating fundraisers, many individuals volunteer to assist teachers with special projects throughout the year.
Flyers will be sent home throughout the year, detailing each upcoming event for which volunteers are needed.
The Parents’ Association coordinates volunteers to serve as representatives for Spring Fair committees, booth staffing, and donations. See our volunteers page for more details.
Teachers, at times, will send home notes requesting special volunteer assistance or contributions
Every gift to The Wilkes School Annual Fund, whether large or small, is important. For further information on giving to The Wilkes School, please contact our Development Director, Dr. Kirtland Peterson.
