Good Evening Wildwood Families,

What an amazing week this was for all of the Wildwood students. They got to participate in their first ever field day and it was a great success and a ton of fun.  Without a doubt, the students favorite station was the ice cream truck. 

Wildwood Staff would like to wish everyone a safe and fun holiday weekend and we look forward to the students returning on Tuesday May 28, 2024.  Please enjoy this week's issue of the Wildwood Weekly.

Philanthropy in Life Skills Enrichment!

Students in the Life Skills enrichment groups learned about Philanthropy. They used their time and talents to make a treasure for someone feeling grief. Through the Hearts of Hope program, students made a card of caring and hand painted a ceramic heart. The mission of Hearts of Hope is to help people grieving loss and tragedy find hope so they can find meaning and grow. Our students projects will be donated to Angela’s Hospice in Livonia.
