Grade 5 MYP mtg

Iterm, lockers, ipads, oh my! Welcome to middle school! 5th grade students had MANY good questions for Director Shannon Peterson and Academic Counselor Megan Kalberg at today's Upper School presentation. Parent Night is tomorrow, 1/18, starting at 6pm. 



  • Teacher Appreciation Potluck: Teachers work hard, many times straight through the lunch hour! The PTO invites you to show your appreciation with a "We Love Our Teachers Soup Lunch" on January 26. If you'd like to participate, please use the Main Campus Sign-Up or Headwaters Campus Sign-Up link. Soup (in a crockpot), sides, desserts, beverages, and set-up/clean-up are needed.
  • Winter Plunge: Skip the beach trip to Florida this year and join us for a dip in the lake, LILA style! Team LILA will once again participate in the Winter Plunge, Gettin' Cold for Your Cause, at Lakeside Park in Forest Lake.  Watch or jump Saturday, February 24, from 12pm-3pm. Visit the team page here!
  • Snow Tubing: Save the date for fun in the snow with other LILA families! The LILA Foundation invites you to Trollhaugen for snowtubing on February 22, 5-9pm. More information to come!
  • Community Member School Board Vote: As of Tuesday morning, we had 17% (compared to the necessary 20%) of votes needed for the Special Election. If you haven't voted yet, please check your email and vote TODAY! Thanks for your help!


  • Grandparents Day Fundraiser: Shortly before winter break, many grandparents attended one of two breakfasts and tours at Lower Campus. Their generous donations will help meet the matching donor challenge and finish up the outdoor improvement project. Thank you to all the grandparents who participated in this annual event!
  • Spring Gala: The LILA Foundation is looking for volunteers to help plan the spring gala. If you are interested, please let them know! This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
