SPECIAL PTO MEETING - KENNEDY MIDDLE SCHOOL PROJECT AND MORE
Please join us this Wednesday, March 7th at 7pm for a special PTO meeting in the Lilja Learning Commons. Katie Joyce, a representative from Your Town, Your Schools, the citizens group that has come together in support of a debt-exclusion to fund the construction of a new Kennedy Middle School, will be there to discuss the impact this vote will have on Lilja families and Natick at large.
The meeting will also include an update about our upcoming auction on April 6th, as well as an update from Principal Anne Carothers.
We hope you can join us to hear about and discuss these important topics. And as always, complimentary babysitting is provided by the PTO for children who are potty trained.
AUCTION TICKETS ON SALE NOW
We are pleased to announce that this year's auction will be held on Friday, April 6, 2018 at the Verve Crowne Plaza in Natick. This year's theme is 80's Night with special emcee Amy Brooks, Alt 92.9 WBOS midday host.
Every other year, the Lilja PTO hosts the Lilja Auction. This parent-only night out helps to raise money to support the two-year operating budget for the PTO. Through the generosity of our parents and auction attendees, the PTO has been able to raise over $40,000 at each of the last two auctions which supports teacher grants, the Cultural Arts programming at Lilja, field trip subsidies, school-wide equipment, and other major projects throughout the year.
Tickets are on sale NOW! Only 200 tickets available! One ticket includes admission, food, music, dancing and a night full of 80's fun. Tickets are $50 per ticket. TICKETS ARE NOT SOLD AT THE DOOR!
It's gonna be RAD!
