St. Jude's Bike-A-Thon

This week our 3s and 4s participated in the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® Trike-A-Thon program.  We rode bikes (and had lots of fun) while helping to raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.  We'll accept contributions to St. Jude through April 3rd.  If you would like to make a contribution to St. Jude, there are several ways you can help out:
  • Use the Sponsor Form Envelope that your child brought home to list the names and donation amounts of any family and friends who would like to contribute.
  •  Contributions are also accepted online. You can visit https://www.stjude.org/get-involved/at-school/trike.html then click FIND YOUR SCHOOL (Wilmington Island Preschool) to set up/register your child’s fundraising page which will allow your child to accept online donations. If you don't want to go through registering--and you don't mind not being eligible for prizes, you can use the FIND A STUDENT search and type in WIPP.  This is a generic school donation page.
In each of the last four years, WIPP has contributed nearly $1000 to St. Jude to help make a difference in the lives of children suffering from cancer and other catastrophic diseases. To learn more about St. Jude, visit stjude.org.

Thanks for all you do!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Thank you to everyone who helped make our parade so much fun!
