PHOTO OF THE WEEK:

2018 track and field

The LILA 4th-6th grade track and field team competed last Thursday at the Community Ed District Track Meet. LILA students showed great determination and efforts, and many came away with first, second, and third place finishes. Great work, Dragons!

NEW NEWS:

  • Library Books: Sophie and Ellyn would like to remind you to start checking around for library materials and leveled books! Items need to find their way back to both campuses by Friday, May 18. Watch for late slips with missing titles to come by early next week. 
  • Health Office Reminders: Please pick up your students' medications from the health office if you kept any on file this year. Summer is a great time to complete phsyicals and immunizations, especially for incoming kindergarteners and students transitioning to 6th/7th grade. Please note that students planning to play fall sports need a SPORTS physical on file. Stay healthy this summer!
