LILA recently won a national best-practices award from Character.org for the thumbprint painting in our Headwaters Campus lobby, an inclusive project designed to symbolize the personal impact each of us at LILA brings to our learning community.
Rep. Bob Dettmer has secured a proclamation from Governor Dayton in honor of the award, which will make Dec. 8 LILA Day in Minnesota.
Rep. Dettmer will present the proclamation to LILA on Dec. 8, at 9:00 a.m., in the Headwaters Campus cafeteria during a special celebration event. The Color Guard and Mayor of Forest Lake will be here. Several diginitaries and representatives will make brief remarks. We'll also offer a school tour to the guests following the presentation.
LILA students and staff should wear their LILA gear on Dec. 8. LILA parents are invited to attend the celebration event.
