 PTO Meeting - Friday, December 5th at 8:45 

with Special Guest Talk on Lice Prevention & Treatment

Please join the regular PTO meeting at 8:45 this Friday morning in the After School room. At 9:00, Julie Weiman, a Newton parent and owner of the Lice Aunties in Newton Upper Falls, will give a short talk and take Q&A about head lice prevention and treatment. Julie Weiman has lived in Newton for over 20 years. Her daughter, who had her first case of head lice in first grade, is now a senior in college. Julie has an MBA and spent over a decade working for a management consulting firm in Boston. She started Lice Aunties in 2008 after a chunk of time spent raising her family. In 2012, she opened a lice treatment center in Newton Upper Falls. She actually loves this business and has had the good fortune to take care of a lot of families in serious lice distress. Please join us this Friday morning!
