Wilson students enjoy the beautiful fall weather while playing on the newly installed playground equipment purchased by the Wilson PTA. The PTA set a three year goal to raise funds to purchase new equipment. Through brat frys, dances, ice cream socials, read-a-thons, penny drives, chore wars, and school supply sales the students, parents, and staff reached their goal.
The project took three years and had two phases. Phase 1 was installed in 2010, for which the PTA raised $5,270. Phase 2 was installed in the summer of 2011, for which the PTA raised $10,577.
Various other donations were made to help complete the playground equipment project:
- Student Council $800
- Walmart $1,000
- Box Tops for Education $833
- 2011 Student Readathon $1,393
- PTA $2,086
- M&I $250
- anonymous donation $1,000
