BIRTHDAY BOOK CLUB
We invite you to celebrate your child’s birthday by donating a Birthday Book to The Beth Taylor Library in your child’s honor. You will leave your child’s mark on our school, help us expand our library, and support our school at the same time!
For your $25 donation, your child will have a celebratory label placed in a new, grade/ age– appropriate library book, especially selected for your child by your school librarian and the Library Committee. Your child’s Birthday Book will then be displayed in the library on our Birthday Book mobile media tower. Thank you for supporting your school library!
This event is something every student looks forward to! Students are excited to visit our Library where we set up our very own “pop up bookstore” with a variety of books for children of all ages. This is also a great opportunity for parents to support our teachers. Each teacher provides a “wish” list of books they would like to have for their classroom. Parents can purchase these books on behalf of their favorite teachers!
Local businesses can support our school by advertising with a community banner. With your sponsorship a banner with your business name and logo will be placed along the school perimeter. This is a great way to advertise and bring attention to your business.

The second Wednesday of every month is Wilbur’s “Eaterie” Night. Every kid in school looks forward to these fun-filled nights where they get to see all their friends outside of school and have dinner. This is a great way to raise funds for our school while promoting business for our local restaurants. Each restaurant gives FOW 20% of the evening’s receipts. Please check the calendar on the FOW website for dates.
While at school, all students will create a colorful drawing, which can be turned into a 10″ melamine plate that is dishwasher safe. These mementos are beautiful keepsakes of your child’s creativity.

SQUARE 1 ART
During Art Class at Wilbur, all students will work on a colorful drawing, which will then be sent to a company called Square 1 Art. Square 1 will take your child’s artwork and transfer it to different products for purchase (water bottles, purses, mousepads, iPhone covers, etc….). These mementos are beautiful and FOW receives a percentage back from all products purchased.
WILBUR ON THE MOVE
Wilbur on the Move is a school-based event that helps our P.E. Program while promoting health and exercise at the same time. Students walk laps around the field to rockin’ music while parents, P.E. coaches and teachers cheer for them along the way. This is a great way for our kids to feel like they are participating directly in helping our school.
Wilbur Wear’s custom clothing for children and adults is a great way to show your school spirit! Stay tuned for our fabulous new line of Wilbur Wear coming out this year!
