The Gala Team Needs Your Help!

We need donations for Wilson’s Annual Gala Silent and Live Auctions to raise money for Wilson’s PTO.  Some of the items that we’re looking for are: restaurant gift cards, store gift cards, hotel stays, experiences, art, new goods, and services such as massages, facials, and manicures.  Please contact Amanda Lemaire at amanda.lemaire@sbcglobal.net with any questions or donations.  Below you will find the sponsorship documents.  You can share this with anyone you think might be interested in donating to our gala!  You can also download them with this link.

aniMeals Pet Food Drive

Wilson Montessori 7th grade student Max Kalba is hosting a pet food drive this week at school to support aniMeals. aniMeals is a program run by Interfaith Ministries of Greater Houston that serves home-bound senior citizens so they do not have to feed their pets people food. Please consider buying extra cat or dog food this week and dropping it in the big plastic bin in the main entryway of the school. Thank you in advance!  Click this link  for more details!

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

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!
