We are looking forward to a great 2016-17 year at Wilson Montessori, and WE NEED YOUR HELP!

The Wilson Montessori PTO plays a critical role in the education of our students by funding important aspects of their educational experience at Wilson. This year, donations will fund important programs, including:

Music Class - $22,000 NEW!
Science Class - $22,000
Classroom Supplies - $30,500
Wilson Wonderground Maintenance - $11,000
Montessori Certification for New Classroom - $11,000
Middle School - $5,000
Staff Appreciation Events - $5,000
Field Trips - $5,000

As you can see, the PTO has a big impact on your child’s education at Wilson Montessori!

The Start with A Bang! campaign asks families to show their support for Wilson early in the school year by giving a much appreciated donation by October 28th. These early donations allow the PTO to fund its commitments with confidence. This approach also eliminates the need to sell things door-to-door like wrapping paper and popcorn!

All of our Wilson Montessori Families are part of the PTO, so it is important to get contributions from as many families as possible. We hope that you will be as generous as you can, but any amount will help. Strong participation is viewed favorably by foundations and corporations as the school seeks further funding.

All families that contribute to the Start with a Bang! campaign by October 28th will receive a free dress pass for each child and will be recognized on the Wilson PTO website. Thank you in advance for your generous support! 


Lower Elementary is moving this week!

You've probably heard by now that all Lower Elementary classrooms are moving into the new temporary building located next to the circle drive. There are plenty of opportunities to lend a hand during this process. Due to the nature of the work, no children are allowed to tag along on any of the available volunteer shifts.
If you have not ever signed up in the VIPS program, please get that process started by clicking here before your volunteer shift.
Friday, 8am - 3pm
Looking for about 15-20 volunteers to help with packing, assisting in the classrooms, etc.
Saturday, 8am-5pm
Looking for as many volunteers as possible to unpack, put together shelving, moving boxes around and help set up rooms.

MUSICOur new music teacher looking for volunteers

Ms. Irwin is looking for assistance putting together some booklets for her budding musicians. This project involves some copying, folding and stapling. Please contact her at lirwin@houstonisd.org for more information.
