Wildcat Club No Hassle W.I.L.D. Fund 

 

The Wildcat Club strives to work alongside with the West Ridge Middle School Staff in the development of our Wildcats into future leaders and assisting in providing the opportunities for WRMS Staff to continue their journey of leadership development.

 

Fundraising through the W.I.L.D. Fund Campaign means:

NO Fundraising events from the Wildcat Club like:

bake sales

car washes

candy sales

or other past fundraising activities that put pressure on parents and students

 

  

Help us reach our 100% participation goal by making a donation today!

 

 


 

What does the Wildcat Club do with your donation?

We work directly with the principal, staff, and parents to identify and address needs at West Ridge. We strive to use EVERY dollar of your donation effectively and responsibly to keep our school exemplary!
