Wilson Family Camping Trip! February 23-25

Join us for the annual Wilson Family Camping Trip the weekend of February 23-25.  The location this year is Huntsville State Park.  The cost is $30 for 2 nights or $20 for one night.  This fee covers space for one tent and up to six people. The park charges parking fees and $5/day fee per person payable upon entry.  Children 12 and under are free.  Bring your camping gear and aa dish to share at the potluck dinner on Saturday evening.  If you can’t spend the night, please join us for the day and the potluck dinner! Green registration forms went home in last Thursday’s folders and can also be found at the front office.  Contact Joanne Smart with questions.

It’s time for the annual Wilson Montessori Tie-dye Extravaganza!  

T-shirt Orders are due on Friday Feb 9th.  Yellow order forms went home in the last paw print and are available by the front office.  Kid shirts are $10.00, adult shirts are $12.00.  Students do not need to order a shirt, but only the preprinted shirts will be uniform shirts after field day. Shirts from home should be white, 100% cotton t-shirts.  They do not have to be new. We will be tie-dying in art class from Feb 28-March 7.  We need parent volunteers to make the process smooth and fun!  Please sign up by contacting Ms. Robbins rrobbin2@houstonisd.org or at the front office or at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080f4aaaa928a1f49-tiedye.    All volunteers must be V.I.P.s certified.

Tie-Dye is permanent and will not wash out of shoes or clothes.  Please be aware of this as your student dresses for school on their art day between Feb 28-March 7. It is not a free dress day, uniforms are required. Your child’s shirt will be returned with washing instructions.  Please follow them carefully to keep your tie dye shirt bright and other clothing safe.  The last step is to remember to wear the shirt on field day Thursday March 29th.  Thank you in advance for your help making this a success!
