The East Elementary School Parent – Teacher Organization is hosting the Harlem Wizards Basketball Team tonight (Friday) for the third year in a row.  The Harlem Wizards travel the country playing local teams in fundraising events.  Tonight’s game will tip off at 7pm at Alton High School. 

East Elementary School in Alton is no different than many other schools in the aspect of having to find creative funding sources, and that’s where the Parent – Teacher Organization is of assistance.  Organization spokesman Roger Waggener says it will be a fun night.
