Space is limited and will be on a “first come, first served” basis, so pre-registration to secure your spot is highly recommended. Cost is $30 for the first child and $5 for each additional child in your family. Children must be at least 2 years old to attend. To register, CLICK HERE. Contact Amanda McClanahan with any questions firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT TO WEAR?
The gala is fast approaching (only one week away!!) and many have asked what they should wear to the event. This year’s venue is beautiful and lends itself to cocktail attire. What does this mean? It’s your chance to dress up and get a little fancy… break out your little black dress, put on your best pair of slacks, or dust off that suit. It does NOT, however, mean there will be a dress code. If flip flops are your idea of fancy…then wear your best ones! There will be women in dresses, and men in suits…but also folks in jeans, khakis and button-downs…and that’s perfectly fine. The important thing is that people come, support the school and have fun! Purchase tickets today at http://www.wilsonpto.org/night_at_the_museum
STUDENTS AS TEACHERS NIGHT
