This Tuesday we look forward to seeing you at our very first Gala preparation meeting!

You will have the opportunity to be involved with this great event in which we will be celebrating a decade of the Montessori education at Wilson!!

Come and learn what we've got planned for this very special Gala!

Holiday Baskets & Gift Cards Needed

If you still have any holiday baskets lying around, taking up room, annoying you, the PTO will be happy to take it off your hands! Just bring the empty basket to the school front office!

Also, if you have any gift cards that you don't need, those can make a great donation to the PTO!

We'll make good use of the baskets and gift cards in our upcoming Gala & Silent Auction.

You can help by contributing some time, cooking items/utensils or gift cards. Anything you can contribute will help!

Thank You For Your Support!

From our own principal, Beth Bonnette, a huge thank you for the incredibly positive community response for the two Wilson families who were affected by fire. The families still need a few items—kitchen items (pots and Pans, cooking utensils, small appliances) and beds (2 twin for children and 1 adult). If anyone has something in a garage or storage unit, please consider donating! As usual, contact the school if you have any comments/questions...
