3rd Annual Family & Friends Night - Wednesday, Nov 6
Millbrook’s 3rd Annual Friends and Family Night is Wednesday, Nov. 6, 6-8:30 PM at Millbrook!
This is the biggest gathering of the year to support our students’ mental and physical well-being! Previous events raised funds for the “Alive at 25” Drunk Driving awareness campaign and for programs to address adverse childhood experiences. This year, funds raised will be used primarily to introduce a new program that focuses on mental health and engages students, teachers and families to talk about teen life and mental health and erase the stigma that goes along with it. This cause is so important, and we encourage parents, staff and students to come out and participate!
Dinner tickets ($15 for adults, $12 for students and staff, and $6 for children under 6) can be purchased through Nov. 2 at http://bit.ly/MHSdinner. Yummy menu items from Miltons include baked ziti, meatballs, Chicken Alfredo, Plain Alfredo, a gluten free pasta option, salad and bread, and our amazing Foods classes will provide dessert! Other events include a silent auction, student art rally and talent show contest of students and staff.
