Support PTA Grad Night
Fabric scraps needed for Boxer Bingo: Grad Night needs your fun fabric prints, preferably unused flannel or cotton, three-yard minimum. Drop off donations in the box in the main office before February 28.
HoopSwag/Sock Fundraiser: Get your sweetheart some special Wilson socks for Valentine’s or keep your own toes toasty warm this winter with specialty socks designed just for Wilson HS. These socks will keep the cold and soggy away and also help support the PTA Grad Night 2019. Socks are $14.99 per pair; check them out at WHS-Maze (https://hoopswagg.com/products/wilson-high-school-maze) or WHS-pdx-carpet (https://hoopswagg.com/products/wilson-high-school-pdx-carpet).
Senior Parents: Graduation wouldn’t be complete without the obligatory Senior Slideshow! Parents, please gather a few of your favorite photos and submit them to Tiffany Jeffords at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a very time consuming project so we are really trying to get a head start on it.
Submit 2-4 pictures (baby pics, school pics, family pics, cooking-with-nana pics… you get the idea!). Send scanned photos to email@example.com; include your senior’s name in the subject line of the email. If you are unable to scan them, please let Tiffany know and she will help you figure it out. Please use your best judgement—the grad night committee reserves the right to deny photos if they are in poor taste (this is a family-friendly event). Don’t completely embarrass your Senior! Pictures can include family or friends if you wish.
If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Seeking a Co-chair for a One-time Celebratory Event: The Senior BBQ
Are you looking to be a part of a favorite Wilson tradition? The Senior BBQ is a lunch sponsored by the WHS Booster Club to celebrate with our graduating seniors. The event is May 31, following the Senior Award Ceremony. Ideally the co-chair would not have a graduating senior in order to be available for preparation during the assembly. In fact, it's a perfect way to jump in as a freshman or sophomore parent. Planning meetings for this event are flexible and can fit around your work schedule. The commitment involves recruiting volunteers, planning the meal, picking up food items and decorations, and being available on Friday, May 31, to work the event. The other co-chair is a pro who has been involved with this fun event for several years. Have more questions before you commit? Contact Tony Hansen: email@example.com.

Grad Night Meetings
We will be announcing information on volunteering and fundraising via email and the Daily Bulletin and by email to parents who have filled out the Parent Volunteer form. We ask that parents of all participants volunteer their time and talent at least a little bit. There are many things to accomplish to give our kids the best event possible. Please consider how you can help. There are specific tasks that require someone other than a senior parent, so if you have a junior this year, consider helping us out, then you'll be prepared to do your own party next year!
No harassment of any kind will be tolerated at the event. Portland Public Schools and Wilson PTA Grad Night recognizes the diversity and worth of all individuals and groups and their roles in society. No discrimination or harassment of individuals or groups of age, color, creed, disability, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation will be allowed to occur at the event.
