Annual East Egg Hunt March 24th
Join us at 11 am at North Shore Middle School at 800 E. North Shore Road in Hartland for our annual Easter Egg Hunt for children with disabilities and their siblings.

We have 2000 filled eggs, but make sure you are there no later than 11 because we start on time! Please bring your own basket or bag. We ask you to open your eggs at the event so that we can re-use the plastic eggs. Many eggs contain winner tickets! Choose from hundreds of prizes. In case of inclement weather call 262-443-8690 and we will have a message if the event changes. 

We still need donations of small prizes and treats that will fit into the eggs. If you can help, call 262-443-8690.

We need a few more hands on deck!
Volunteers, we need you! There are lots of opportunities to help at the events on March 3rd, 23rd and 24th. Plus we always need help at the office!  Please let us know if you can help! Email to info@wiusd.org or call 262-443-8690 and say-"I want to Volunteer!".
