Wilson Montessori is a polling location, and Election Day (November 8th) is just around the corner. That means it’s time to get ready for our Annual Election Day Bake Sale! Whether you'd like to contribute baked goods, other edibles, drinks, or give an hour or two of your time to greet voters and sell goodies, your help is needed to make this school fundraiser a great success! 

What you can do to help:

Donate! Drop off perishable baked goods*, fresh fruit, pizza, snacks, or drinks between 7:00am and 4:00pm on November 8th at the Bake Sale Table in front of the school. Non-perishable donations may be left at the office on Monday, November 7th - no earlier!
