    SKI BUS  


    The Odyssey Ski Bus is ready to roll.  Need a lift? 


    To check out the different packages available go to: www.skihood.com/go

    enter GO code: 1163262


    Each Sunday in January a charter bus will take interested participants to Mt. Hood Meadows.  It is a convenient way for your child (or anyone in your family) to purchase lessons, lift tickets, and transportation at a group rate.  The charter bus is equipped with televisions and a bathroom and parks right next to the lodge in the first row of the parking lot. The whole family can join, or you can enroll your child in SnoBlasters and be assured that they will be escorted to the Ski School, receive instruction and supervision each Sunday, and be returned to you in the evening.  We will depart from the parking lot across from the Southwest Community Center on the corner of 45th and Vermont.


    Email, call, or text me if you have any questions,

    Father of Annika (5th) and Colin (2nd).

    8th-Grade Family Information Night @ Wilson High School
    November 6, 2019

    All families living in the Wilson attendance boundary with 8th-grade students are invited. Whether your student is planning to come to Wilson and you would like a bit more preparation for your freshman, your family has not yet decided what high school your student will attend, or you simply want to learn more about programs at Wilson, mark your calendar and plan to attend.

    Beginning at 6:00 pm we will have a special Club and Activity Fair for you to find out more about student activities. The program will begin at 6:30. Wilson teachers, counselors, and administrators will be on hand to answer your questions and provide you with the information you and your student need to make the transition from middle school to high school. Tour classrooms and meet current Wilson students and parents and learn about all that Wilson offers.
