  • A Message From Principal Chatard

    April 24, 2017

    Dear Wilson Community,

    What fun it was to see so many of you at the auction this weekend! We will be sending information shortly about the totals raised and items that are left that you can bid on online. In the meantime, I wanted to share some news about the Foundation.

    The paddle raise at the auction raised more than $40,000 to pay for staff! This is an all-time record, during a year of very significant budget cuts, so I thank all of you who donated for your generosity. For those of you who were unable to attend on Saturday, there is still time to contribute to help reduce class sizes and increase class offerings for students next year.

    We are hoping to raise at least another $5,000 for the Foundation to help to restore some class sections and electives, and we are asking those of you who haven't donated yet to do so now. You can click here to make your contribution (be sure to designate Wilson HS as the recipient), or you can write a check payable to "Wilson Foundation" and drop it off to the office. No amount is too large or too small as our combined efforts have impact.

    I continue to feel so fortunate to be part of this school community that works together to support our students. Thank you for all of your contributions.

    Very respectfully,
    Brian Chatard
