Annual Wilson Gala - NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM!

It's time to start gearing up for our gala, Night at the Museum! This year’s silent auction and fundraiser will be held at the Buffalo Soldiers Museum on Saturday, February 18th from 6pm to 10pm. First, I would like to say, “THANK YOU,” to our amazing parents and staff who donated last year. Most of our auction items come from parents—many of whom either own a local business or can make something as a hobby. This is what makes our auction so unique: it truly reflects the diversity of our community and surrounding area.

If you, or someone you know, participated last year, we ask, once again, for your support. This is our most important fundraiser for the year. Funds raised help pay for the many enrichment programs that PTO brings to Wilson, such as music, gardening and so much more.

Some of the items we are looking for are:

  • Sponsorships
  • Travel Destinations – beach or lake houses, timeshares, etc.
  • Frequent flyer miles or airline gift cards
  • Services- salon services, life coaching, fitness, etc.
  • Jewelry
  • Restaurant Gift Certificates
  • Things to do with your kids -- passes to the museums, Houston Zoo, NASA, etc.
  • Experiences - pizza parties, spa days, lessons, etc.
  • Gift Baskets
  • Summer Camp and Summer Program Spots
  • Sports Memorabilia - autographed balls/items, tickets to sporting events, etc.

If you cannot donate an item or service, consider donating some of your time to help our Gala team. We could always use an extra hand in making this year’s event to one to remember!

Winter Break Help with our School Chickens  

During the week we need volunteers to close up the chicken coop in the evenings (between 6-9pm) to protect our chickens from predators.  On the weekends we need volunteers to come in the mornings (6-8am) to let the chickens out of their coop and then again in the evening to close the coop. The chickens will also need to be fed once a day and have their water checked.

PLEASE SIGN UP USING THIS FORM.  If there are any eggs, they are yours to have! 

If you have any questions regarding the specifics of the chicken care, please email Nichole Campbell at nccampbell79@yahoo.com

Thank you for your willingness to help our school continue to be a wonderful community.
