Home and School

Wilder Penfield’s Home and School is a group of dedicated volunteers working towards one common goal: Creating fond memories for Wilder Penfield children!

We organize events such as Pizza and Sub Lunches, Frozen Yogurt, Corns Roasts, Terry Fox Run, Halloween Party, Holiday Fair, Run-a-thon, Staff & Daycare Appreciation Week, Movie Night, and other great activities. We can provide the school with funds for the teacher’s wish list, school material and resources as needed.

We are always looking for volunteers and helping hands. Our committee meets once a month on the last Tuesday of every month in the library. These meetings give our volunteers an opportunity to discuss upcoming fundraisers as well as our goals and objectives. We also discuss issues that affect the student body and its community.
