Urban Harvest Work DayIMG_0591.jpg

Thank you to everyone who made it out this past Saturday for the Urban Harvest Work Day! More than 40 volunteers prepped the garden for fall planting by cleaning, weeding, and adding compost to all the beds and fruit trees. They also cleaned out and organized the shed. Special thanks to Garland and Graham who went above and beyond to fix our water fountain.

How to pay your supply fee?


No need to go to the store and purchase a bunch of supplies.  Our Montessori school makes it easier for everybody. A $45 supply fee is required for each student in all grades, payable to "Wilson PTO." The Wilson PTO banks and manages the money for our Wilson teachers. Please DO NOT buy any school supplies. Our teachers will purchase all necessary Montessori materials and supplies for the classrooms. 

To pay, you can write a check to the PTO and drop it off at the locker labeled "PTO" by the school office; or you can pay online by clicking here.

Thank you in advance!!
