The Start with A Bang! campaign asks families to show their support for Wilson early in the school year by giving a much appreciated donation by October 27th. These early donations allow the PTO to fund its commitments with confidence. This approach also eliminates the need to sell things door-to-door like wrapping paper and popcorn!

All of our Wilson Montessori Families are part of the PTO, so it is important to get contributions from as many families as possible. We hope that you will be as generous as you can, but any amount will help. Strong participation is viewed favorably by foundations and corporations as the school seeks further funding.

All families that contribute to the Start with a Bang! campaign by October 27th will receive a free dress pass for each child and will be recognized on the Wilson PTO website. Thank you in advance for your generous support!
