Volunteers.jpgThank You To Our Volunteers!

The Winter Show was great! If you haven't done so already, please share your pictures with us! Many thanks to all our volunteers who helped make the show happen! Wilson PTO would like to give extra special thanks to our own inhouse sound guru, Malcolm Hackney and Bright Star Productions-- you guys are the best! Special thanks also go out to Dave Jans Sr., who manned the light board for the whole show singlehandedly and at extremely short notice. Many thanks to Ikuko Qano and the Wilson Spirit Crew, who helped us sell quite a lot of shirts and cookies! Many thanks to our backstage crew: Cherita Judson (who helped choreograph several numbers, as well!), John & Jessica Basciano, Leo & Hannah Boucher, Lindsay Gonzales, Amber Moncla, Jessica Haskins & many more! Thanks to our roving photographers: Heather Davis & Amina Em Laith.
