Spring 2015 Lost and Found
Do you recognize anything in this picture? We'd love to return it to you! Please be sure to check the Main Campus and Headwaters Campus Lost & Founds before the end of the school year. Also, thanks to the teachers and volunteers who have tried to keep the areas organized this year!


  •  Join the LILA challenge! The Johnson/Turner Calorie Burner 5k & 1k will take place May 30 at Lakeside Park in Forest Lake. LILA has won the $250 school participation award for the last two years, so please help us continue the tradition! The event raises money for the Lakes Area Youth Service Bureau. 
  • Friendly Reminders: Please take a moment to double-check that all school lunch account balances are paid in full. Now is also a good time to start searching for those lost library books! It's hard to believe, but the end of the school year is only a few weeks away!



 It's almost time for our biggest celebration of the year!  Family Fun Night is just around the corner and we NEED YOU!  The LILA PTO greatly appreciates your time.  This event is only made possible because of parents and volunteers, like you!

Please sign-up for a volunteer opportunity that best fits you.  It will be a GREAT time, and we look forward to spending the evening with you and your family.  THANK YOU!

Beat the lines!  Save money!  Watch for pre-sale ticket/wristband information coming home SOON.

  • The Forest Lake community group "Health UP" is looking to do a bike share program through the company Zagster in Forest Lake, and is assessing community interest. They'd like your input! Click here to take the survey.
  • Parent Input Forms are available for parents interested in offering insights about their child in regards to his/her best classroom environment in the year to come. The form is one of many things taken into account when balancing classes and must be turned in by May 16 in order to be considered.
