PHOTO OF THE WEEK:
6th grade students attended We Day, a large St. Paul event focused on students making a difference around the world. LILA students also made a difference here in MN, breaking last year's "We Scare Hunger" food drive record by 20lbs, for a total of 847lbs of food collected for Family Pathways.
LILA's Grand Opening and PYP Night was a huge success! Thanks to all those who joined us in celebrating. If you couldn't make the event or would like to learn more about LILA's curriculum, please click here.
Join LILA families for our 2nd Annual Turkey Bingo event on Friday, November 21st at 6:00 in the gym at the main campus. Every winner will walk away with a frozen turkey, and our last coverall game will be a gift card prize. Cost for Bingo is $5 per person. Pizza, pop, and water will be available for sale. New LILA t-shirts will also be available for sale. See you there!!
Both the Main Campus and Headwaters cafeterias will soon be switching from using peanut butter to sunbutter in sandwiches, starting January 1st. The cafeterias will also continue to provide a nut-free table as needed. Students may continue to bring peanut and nut products from home.
FROM THE PTO:
- Need a holiday gift for that hard-to-buy-for someone? A teacher? Hair stylist? Great Grandma Dora? How about a delicious smelling bag of fresh, Free Trade, Organic coffee? Have a couple extra of those good smelling beans on hand for that friend who gives you a surprise gift this year, or for the host of a party or dinner this holiday season. Two more weeks for our PTO Coffee Fundraiser!
PAST BUT PERTINENT:
- Brrr! It's cold! Remember to send children to school with labeled coats, hats, boots, snowpants, and gloves!
Students in grades 3-6 will soon begin taking practice assessments (called "OLPA") in both reading and math to prepare for the MCA standardized assessment given in the spring. There will be 2-3 of these practice sessions to give students a chance to familiarize themselves with the assessment and for teachers to target individual instruction as needed for each student.
There will be a Math And Science Family Fun Fair on Saturday, November 22 from 10am-4pm at the University of Minnesota. Kids of all ages are welcome! The event comes highly recommended from a few LILA families that have participated in years past.
