Happy Labor Day!

We've compiled the most relevant information for this week at Wilson Montessori, exclusively for you:

In this issue you will find information about:

  • Wilson Open House
  • Fabulous First Friday Free Dress
  • Breakfast with Bonnette
  • Start With A Bang
  • Urban Harvest Work Day
  • Annual Wilson Family Camping Weekend
  • Reminder: School Arrival and Dismissal



Thursday Sept 4th, 5:30 - 7:00 p.m.


Come and take advantage of the open doors in your child's classroom and explore how your child learns everyday! We kindly ask that you do not bring your children to this event in order for teachers to focus on daily classroom activities and routines. 

Wilson PTO will hold their first general meeting in the school auditorium from 5:30 to 6:00 pm. During this meeting we will welcome new and established parents and give a quick talk about the upcoming year's highlights and community events. Wilson Spirit items will be available for purchase.  

Remember: Spirit shirts may be worn any day of the year, it's part of our uniform! There is a high demand for this years design so make sure you order and/or buy yours ASAP!




Fabulous First Friday Free Dress


This Friday is September 5th, and do you know what that means? It means students may dress as they absolutely like (within the HISD dress code norms, of course!).

In case you're  wondering, Wilson allows students to have a free dress day every first Friday of the month.

Look out for the donation box in the school lobby to show your support for this monthly event. Suggested donation: $1.




Breakfast with Bonnette



Friday Sept. 5th, 8:30 a.m. in the Library


Please join us this Friday for the very first Breakfast with Bonnette of the 2014 - 2015 school year.

Not sure what exactly Breakfast with Bonnette is? Join us this Friday and find out!

Ms Bonnette, our school Principal, has these informative meetings to talk about school, our kids, and anything you want to discuss.

Hope to see you there!

Coffee and treats will be provided!!    



Start With A Bang!


Our annual fund continues for its second consecutive run! While we will not ask you to sell cookies or wrapping paper, we do ask for your financial contribution to help our school be awesome. Look for a letter from PTO presidents Hannah Jans and Ernesto Alfaro this week and please consider making a tax-deductible donation- even a little bit helps!




Urban Harvest Work Day


Saturday Sept 6th, 8:00 - 10:00 a.m.



At the start of every school year we clear out the vegetable beds from our beautiful garden, this allows the earth to breath and prepare for the new seedlings. Ms. Irene Nava, our wonderful teacher from Urban Harvest, will be there  to help and guide us. This work day allows Wilson families to collaborate and get their hands dirty for a great cause! And, it's also a great learning experience for our children. Green thumb not required.

After all that work, why not have a party? This Saturday we will also be throwing our little "end of summer" party. We'll provide the watermelon - you provide your time! Wilson PTO will also provide breakfast tacos and drinks. See you there!



Annual Wilson Family Camping Weekend


September 26th - 28th


You, your child, and your family are cordially invited to our Annual Wilson Family Campout! This is a great event we have with our Wilson families, and it's always guaranteed to be EXTRA fun!

Which night should you attend, you're probably wondering, right? It's completely up to you! Or you can be there for the entire weekend!!
