If you haven't been to a Tuesday meeting, it's not too late! New members are most certainly welcomed! Join the PTO Fall Festival team and share your ideas, skills and energy towards creating and managing the Wilson Fall Festival AKA Harvest Celebration. Meetings are held at Cafe Brasil on Westheimer and Dunlavy.

This festival will be held on Nov 8th. Volunteer at the Fall Festival: http://www.wilsonpto.org/volunteer_pto


Mobile Mammography Van at our Fall Festival

We have a great opportunity to have the Mammography Van at the Festival! If you're interested and want to sign up or  would like more information, please contact Ruth Yáñez by emailing ptoboard@wilsonpto.org 

Don't have health insurance? No problem! Contact Ruth and she can help.

We must have 20 people signed up in order for the van to show up, so please spread the word to our Wilson families and lets make sure this event happens!!

Why Are Mammograms Important?

Mammograms can detect cancer early — when it is most treatable. In fact, mammograms show changes in the breast up to two years before a patient or physician can feel them. 


Donations needed!

... for Fall Festival

Wilson families: we are asking you to please donate face-painting brushes (if you label them, we will gladly give them back to you after the Festival). Face painting is always one of our most popular booths and we are currently in need of brushes!



Don't have face-paint brushes? We are also in need of items for (loaned or donated) tables, chairs (folding, camping), andpopup canopies. If you are participating in this please label the items with your names.



Deadline for Box Tops for Education

Friday, Oct. 24th

Please turn in any Box Tops for Education at the box tops locker by the school office. In order for them to be submitted for the fall deadline, we are asking you to please turn them in by Friday, October 24th.

Our school earns 10 cents for every box top you submit. Help us make our goal of $1,000 this year. Learn more at boxtops4education.com. Thanks for supporting our school!! See the website for participating products.

** Please continue to submit Box Tops all year round, we are asking you to submit the ones you've been saving up by the October 24th deadline because this is when we send them to get redeemed!! We get a chance to redeem twice a year.
