Golden Paw

The Golden Paw

Parents who attend and engage in 4 of our 5 Parent University Courses will be awarded the Golden Paw Award. This is given in recognition of the dedication, support, and growth in learning for those who complete these courses offered to parents to improve engagement and better support our students at school and at home.


Technology Safety

November 10th at Wilder Elementary we had our first introduction to the Parent University and had Officer Blanco teach about internet and phone safety.

  • Remember Idaho is a hands-free state so having a cell phone in your hand while driving is against the law.

  • Keep an eye on what your children are doing with their phones, have security filters on devices, and ways to monitor what is being done with electronics.
