ski trip

"Trollhaugen, here we come!" 4th and 5th grade students, together with their teachers, chaperones, and language ambassadors, hit the slopes last Friday. They became knowledgeable through the ski lessons, risk-takers on the hills, and caring friends helping each other out on the ski lifts. A great way to practice IB learner traits outdoors!



  • Xie xie, thank you, to all of the families that came out to the Chinese New Year Night at LILA last Thursday. Though we don't fit into one building during the school day, it was wonderful to see Upper Campus and Lower Campus, families and teachers, siblings and students together in honor of the holiday. Check out the pictures on the Facebook Page!
  • If you're craving more winter fun, mark your calendar for LILA's annual tubing night at Trollhaugen! February 16, 5-9pm, $15 to tube or observe. Playing in the snow is more fun with friends!
  • LILA has job openings for a full time custodian and occasional bus driver. Do you know someone who could add to our great staff? Please pass the links along to family and friends!
  • If you haven't yet picked up your December LILA order, it's ready for you! Stop by the front desk at the Headwaters campus during school hours and until 4pm to grab your items and sign off that you got them. Go Dragons!



  • Paint/Pallet/Boutique is this Saturday, January 28! Even if you aren't doing the craft, come and support LILA family-owned businesses, shop, and catch up with friends. There will be wine tasting and a huge variety of great vendors for all your favorite products. Last minute/late registrations for the craft event can still be received until Wednesday evening, or until the final spots fill up. Please note that now the only way to register is by directly contacting Craft Addiction via the blue "send message" button on their Facebook page. Be sure to include your contact information in your message. Hope to see you there!
