Thank You Mesta Park Neighborhood Association

Wilson Elementary teachers, staff, students, & parents are so grateful for the generous gift of five new outdoor picnic tables and a teachers' bench. We are also thankful for the group of volunteers who came out to assemble the tables and clean up the playground and garden areas. As a neighborhood school, we value the support of Mesta Park Neighborhood Association immensely, and we look forward to many more years of partnership. Thank you, neighbors!
