Thank you to everyone who supported Wilson’s annual Start with a BANG! campaign – together you raised an amazing record breaking $13,004! Your generous support helps bridge the gap between district funding and the actual cost to give our students a well-rounded Montessori education. Thank you for being so passionate about Wilson Montessori! And thank you also to everyone that participated in making this year’s annual Election Day Bake Sale such a success. It raised more than $1600!
