CNY 2015

Come one, come all, to Chinese New Year Family Night at LILA! This THURSDAY, 1/ 19, 5-8pm. Click here to view the invitation, including schedule of student performances, menu, and parking/shuttle information (or check on the LILA Events section on the home page of the website or on Facebook if you have trouble with the link). Buy food tickets in advance with FeePay by WEDNESDAY NIGHT to pick up at LILA at the event. Both Lower and Upper School teachers will be there! Let's celebrate the Year of the Rooster!


  • Upper School Important Dates: The end of 1st semester is already upon us - January 19 (same as Chinese New Year Night!). All missing work and retakes need to be finished and submitted by January 27. I-term starts January 20 with the winter masqerade dance that evening, 7-9:30pm.  That's right - 2 awesome nights of LILA fun in a row!
  • Host Families - Anabella now has a host family, as do almost all our ambassadors! Due to an unforseen change, we are in need of a replacement family for one of our Chinese Language Ambassadors. Please let our hard working, volunteer host family committee know ASAP if you are able to share your home! Thank you! ~ This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • Leadership Club: The YMCA hosts a leadership club on Thursdays from 5:30-6:30pm for grades 7-12. See Miss Natalie at Upper School for flyers with more information.
  •  The LILA Archery club recently won 1st place at a competition with a score of 2990! Congrats to Kaylee Johnson, who placed 2nd for individual archers with a score of 277. Go Dragons!
  •  It's a great weather week for outdoor recess! Lower School students, please come prepared to play in WET snow! Stash an extra pair of dry socks (along with gym shoes) in backpacks and enjoy the warm temps!


  • Parents Night Out! Join us Saturday, January 28 from 6:00-8:30pm, for a night of friends, crafts, and shopping at LILA! Make a custom painted pallet for your home ($40), or skip the project and come to visit and shop from other LILA parents who have home businesses. Currently booths include LuLaRoe, Thirty-One, Isogenix, AdvoCare, MariaLovecreation, Brian's Cabinets, doTERRA, Wanderer Traveling Boutique, and some hand-created crafts. Registration (both for the pallet and to have a booth) and more information can be found in the Facebook event page, and on the PTO's Facebook Page. Hope to see you there!
  • Believe it or not, Family Fun Night planning is underway and we are looking for some early helpers! If you are willing to help at home by filling out a few online applications or calling businesses to request donations, please contact Kelly Farrell at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. This can be done on your own time, anytime before February. Thanks so much!


  • Yearbooks are still available through FeePay! If you are unsure if you already made an order, please check your "enrollment history" before purchasing. Refunds on duplicate purchases cannot be given in the full amount due to fees that are associated with FeePay. Secure your copy today!
