EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITY FEE

In March 2010, Wilson established a student activity fee. The purpose of the activity fee is to off-set costs associated with the implementation of Wilson’s extracurricular programs in grades 6-12. For the 2011-2012 school year, the activity fee will remain a one-time fee of $60 per student. The one-time fee will allow a student to participate in an unlimited number of extracurricular activities. 

 

Checks are to be made payable to the “WILSON SCHOOL DISTRICT” with the students name, grade and activity written on the check. At the middle schools, the check is to be given to the coach/advisor. At the senior high, checks can be given to the coach/advisor or submitted to the athletic office. All cash payments must be hand delivered to the Senior High athletic office.

 

There are some extracurricular activities that are service-based or co-curricular and participating students will not be required to pay the activity fee. For a list of these activities, more details about the fee, and FAQ’s, please visit www.wilsonsd.org/Athletics.  Any questions regarding the activity fee can be directed to the Extracurricular Office at 610-670-0810 x1141.

As we move toward more efficient electronic communications methods, this will be a critical component for keeping our staff, parents and residents informed during the upcoming year.

 

The Blitz is also the ONLY WAY that Flyers & Handouts are distributed. No district-wide paper flyers will be sent home, but rather posted on-line at www.wilsonsd.org/Flyers. Individual buildings and PTOs reserve the right to send papers home as needed. To sign up for the Bulldog Blitz weekly e-newsletter, just go to www.wilsonsd.org/BulldogBlitz.
