About Our Auction
Our beautiful new Cunniff school facility is currently being built, though the old school will always hold special memories for former and current Cunniff Cougars.
The Cunniff PTO is holding a silent auction featuring bricks from the old Cunniff building, and the proceeds will help raise money for classroom supplies, future field trips, social activities, and classroom enrichment programs for our students.
Now is your chance to show your Watertown pride and display a piece of school history in your home!
We are auctioning off three different tiers of bricks as detailed below. The first ten bricks are in near pristine condition and come encased.
*The Premier Brick (#01): This top tier and one-of-a-kind brick is housed in a glass case on a cherry finished wooden base complete with a suede platform and mirrored background. Attached to the wooden base is an individually numbered gold-colored metal nameplate with the Cunniff name and years of operation.
*Exclusive Brick (#02 - #10): This brick is housed in an acrylic case; attached to the top is an individually numbered brushed silver aluminum nameplate with the Cunniff name and years of operation. Each case measures 9" x 4.375" x 4.125".
*Regular Brick (#11 - #40): This brick has an individually numbered brushed silver aluminum nameplate with the Cunniff name and years of operation attached to the front. No case is included with the brick.
The measurement of each brick is approximately 7.5" x 3.75" x 2.25", and you are bidding on the exact brick in the photo, as is. Please note that some bricks still have mortar attached. You are not charged for your bid unless you win the auction, and you will be invoiced for your winning bid(s). Payments can be made via Swipe (through this website), Venmo, check, or cash after the invoice is sent.

About Cunniff Elementary School PTO
The Cunniff PTO is a parent lead group that works directly with the Principal and Cunniff Faculty to improve and enhance the academic and social experience of the students at our school.
Every year the PTO allocates funds to each classroom for supplies, field trip buses, numerous social activities, classroom enrichment programs and much, much more. In past years the PTO has helped to underwrite special requests such as a new classroom document projector and enrollment in "Study Island" to prep students for MCAS.
As an organization we get a lot done for the school behind the scenes, including buying gifts of recognition for retiring teachers and staff, contributing to school clubs, and recognizing how extra funds will be distributed. PTO funds are raised through various fundraisers held throughout the year.
