March 17, 2014 -- The Sky's the Limit Courtyard committee will host a family spaghetti dinner with two seatings, 5:30 and 7:00 pm, at the Hopkinton Middle School cafeteria on Friday, March 28. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door per person or diners may purchase a family pass for 5 people for $40. The band Fuze will entertain diners during meal times and all proceeds will benefit The Sky’s the Limit Courtyard project.

The Sky’s the Limit Courtyard project’s goal is to raise funds through private donations to transform the unused, inaccessible “courtyard” at Hopkinton Middle School into a vibrant outdoor learning and meeting space for students and the Hopkinton community. The vision includes an amphitheater, outdoor classrooms, open space and informal gathering areas.

“The family spaghetti dinner is a great way to spend some quality time with family, enjoy a hearty dinner and listen to great music, while supporting a project that will transform learning at the Hopkinton Middle School,” said Maryellen Grady, Hopkinton Middle School Assistant Principal.

The project started as a vision of Maryellen Grady, Hopkinton Middle School’s Assistant Principal years ago. In November of 2011 the students of Mrs. McLean's 8th grade math class and Mr. O'Connell's 8th grade science classes were charged with the task of creating a detailed scaled drawing of the unused middle school courtyard. The students’ creative plans included classroom spaces, a stage, and a dance floor. These ideas were given to Tom Dawson, a local architect, along with feedback from the middle school staff to create the vision of "The Sky's the Limit" courtyard. Mr. Dawson created his plan based on the ideas, dreams, and drawings of the students and staff.

Tickets to the Spaghetti dinner may be purchased in advance at the Middle School and checks should be made payable to the Hopkinton Middle School with Sky’s the Limit written in the memo section
