The LWES Art Docent Program is a nonprofit program that serves the 950+ students who attend Lake Wilderness Elementary School and affiliated preschool program. It was conceived to provide students with additional art education and a way for them to explore their creative intellect. The program is supported through training and lessons created just for LWES, with a modern set of lessons and projects tailored to our school to make it easy for volunteers to teach in the classroom. We are actively seeking more volunteers for this program!  For more information, email 


This program is LW PTSA's way to bring students and their families together for fun activities, whether for special occasions (Trunk or Treat, Harvest Party, and Holiday Breakfast) or just for the fun of it (Skate Night, Movie Night, etc.)! For more information, email


A Playground Pal is an adult who volunteers to hang out on the playground and engage with the students from 11:30am-1:30pm on Fridays throughout the year. Your focus will be to encourage positive behavior and experiences during this time.

The PRRR (Prepare, Read, Record, Reward) Reading Program seeks to encourage students to get reading! This involves completing logs and turning them in each month. If students read for a full 6 months, they're invited to a special event before the end of the school year! If you haven't gotten a reading log, print our  generic one. For more information visit our PRRR page. For more information, email
