  • You are Invited to the LILA Foundation Spring Gala on April 22, 2017 at the Headwaters Campus! This is an event not to be missed! Appetizers, wine, dinner, raffles, silent and live auction! The event helps the LILA Foundation to maintain an endowment which is used to enhance the quality of education for LILA students and alumni and strengthen the school's long-term financial health. Please consider your network of family and friends who may be able to donate toward the auction - artwork, handyman services, gift cards, timeshares, season tickets, etc. Donations of all sizes are welcome and appreciated! See the donations request letter for more ideas and click here to make a donation. Please feel free to contact Mark Martin with any questions: This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • Spring Testing: Many grade levels at both Lower and Upper Campuses will be taking MCA standardized testing this spring. Watch your email for the specific tests and testing dates for your child's class, and make every effort to schedule doctor, dentist, and any other planned school absences around those dates. Studies show that students do better when they test with their classmates. And, of course, don't forget plenty of sleep and a healthy breakfast on test day!
