What WILL IT LOOK LIKE THIS YEAR, 2021?

Wilson High school will be hosting Senior Celebration (Gradnite & Prom mixed together) ON CAMPUS this year on Saturday June 12, 7-10:30pm. This year's theme will be Great Gatsby! It will be on campus, outdoors, and following all state required safety protocols.  Students will experience a carnival-style celebration and get to enjoy socially distanced activities including, Palm Readers, DJ Dancing, Outdoor Games, Snacks and Sodas, Karaoke, Caricaturists, and a few other surprises.  The Prom King and Queen will also be announced.
 
Opportunities to volunteer will be needed before, during and after the event. Priority will be given to parents of the Senior class of 2021, but we will need as much help as possible.  As always parents of Freshman, Sophomores and Juniors are also welcome to help. Come to our upcoming meeting to see where there is a need.  There will be signups for shifts before, during, and after the event.
