  • Attention - All LILA buildings will be closed on Friday, April 3, including Amigos and the front offices. Amigos will be open April 1-2 when there is no school for teacher inservice.
  •  Join us tonight, March 30, at 6:00 p.m. at the Headwaters Campus for our Grades 7 & 8 information session for parents and students. Bring a friend—students do not need to be LILA graduates to attend middle school here. Sign up for this info session or one of several other dates here.
  • Congratulations to LILA School Board members Jeff Schipper, Mira Norcross, Kaari Rodriguez, Jocelyn Hylden, Brooke Mastro, and Jeanie Callahan. And thank-you to our out-going members for their service. Volunteers like you make the LILA community an exceptional experience for our students.



  • Last chance for Flower Orders! Browse the brochure and then print and make your order! Many varieties are available, including hanging baskets, annuals, perennials, veggies, herbs, and even strawberries! 



  • Looking for a volunteer opportunity that allows you to welcome new LILA parents, work from home using your computer and phone, and make an invaluable contribution to the school?  Become LILA's carpool coordinator! It involves getting the contact information of interested parents and sharing it with other interested parents in the same area (e.g. by zip code). Timing can be flexible according to your schedule and will give you another item for your résumé. The outgoing carpool coordinator is transitioning from stay-at-home parent to working-outside-the-home parent, and can't continue as coordinator, but would be happy to work with you as you learn the role. Apply online HERE.
  • Have a great LILA photo? It could make the yearbook! TODAY IS THE LAST DAY to upload pictures! Upload 1-2 group shots of your club, group, or other LILA event by March 30 for possible inclusion!
  • Please join us on Friday, April 10, from 5:30-8:00pm for the 10th annual Forest Lake Area Schools Festival of Cultures!  LILA always makes a good showing!
