  • Did you lend a two-wheel dolly during the move? We are trying to track down a dolly with a red bar down the center and appliance strap. If you think you may have taken the wrong dolly home, please call the Headwaters Campus (651-464-8989) to make the switch. Thanks!
  • Next week is Forest Lake Area High School's Homecoming Week! Celebrate it LILA style!
    • OCT 6: Mundo Monday (World Monday): Wear your red, white, and blue-- or show your dress in a costume that shows your family heritage, or simply wear a soccer jersey from your favorite international team.
    • OCT 7: Tropical Tuesday: Hawaiian shirts, safari khakis, and bring out those leis.
    • OCT 8: Wanna Be Wednesday: Who do you want to be? Dress up as your favorite super hero, movie star, career, or whoever else you'd like to be.
    • OCT 9: Throwback Thursday: Wear a picture of you when you were younger pinned to the outfit that matches the photo. OR—dress like it’s a different decade! It's time for a blast from the past.
