Wildwood had by far the best results of any schools in Sumter and Marion Counties at the Regional Science Fair in Ocala.
Thanks to all of you who participated as judges. You've played a significant role in helping these young people become interested in STEM careers. Many of the senior students who presented at the science fairs are going to college next year in science and engineering fields.
Thank you - Woody High, Wildwood Wildcats Booster Club

Every year Mrs. Ellis, AVID Advisor, puts on a fundraiser in which bowls of homemade soup are sold to the teachers during their lunch period for $5.00. This money goes to Senior Stoles, College Visits, and end of year AVID Senior Banquet.
A Tasty Event
Notice the soup on the shelf. They were not out of stock
15 soups were donated by Booster members and teachers. Teachers commented this should be done more often. Some told us that several students questioned why they didn’t get any
A total of $174 was sold and is matched by a Booster Club member for a Soup Day total of $348
