Student Activities & Leadership
Fred Wild Elementary students enjoy a variety of extracurricular learning experiences. These experiences provide exciting opportunities for students to showcase their talents and expand upon their interests. Students are responsible to maintain eligibility by following the school's behavior and high academic expectations.
Fifth grade students in their homeroom classes are instructed in the DARE decision making model by our School Resource Officer. In the spring, the students participate in a county-wide celebration at South Florida State College! The success of this program is due to the collaboration of staff and the Highlands County Sheriff's Office.
Safety Patrol is for 5th grade students. Students in 4th grade train alongside 5th grades during the last few weeks of school. Students assist with escorting students to the buses, parent pickup, and our walker's gate. Additional patrols help during lunch periods to keep the hallways calm.
The Wildcat Chorus is open to any interested 4th & 5th grader who would like additional choral practice and performance opportunities. Chorus helps reinforce some of the skills and musical concepts studied in the regular music classes. The chorus meets at least once weekly during the school day. Occasionally, an after school performance or rehearsal is required.
One of the newest activities, is also our fastest growing clubs! Students learn the basics of percussion ensemble, and perform regularly around campus!
