Big Night for Mill Pond!

Just like sometimes at the Oscars, a film can walk away with a big evening including Best Movie, Best Director, Best Editing, etc.. Mill Pond had that kind of evening at the 11th Annual Westborough Education Foundation Trivia Bee Monday Night! While the Red Carpet may not have been as bright, the energy and excitement were electric! Mill Pond generated the winning team of parents: Adam Halem, Kevin Glassman and Ben Wallace!! 6th grader Naomi Gold (not pictured) won the award for "Best Costume"! And not to be stopped there, Mill Pond also won the award for "Best Dressed" with the Pond Life Team of administrators (who will be left nameless). It was an enjoyable night for all and helped raise a lot of money for our students!
