PHOTO OF THE WEEK:

 PLC 5th grade

Two heads (and in this case, two teams) are better than one! In addition to Monday and Tuesday's inservice days last week, teachers meet regularly to improve their instruction. Pictured above, 5th grade and specialist teachers discuss ideas for an IB "How We Express Ourselves" Unit. 

NEW NEWS:

  • Upper School Sports Update: LILA will be using rSchoolToday for scheduling activities and athletics, so you can now easily see when a game or meet is coming up! Boys Baseball has enough participants for a team, and Upper School Golf will be open for 5th-12th grade students. Go Dragons!
  • Spring Gala Ticket Deadline: Tickets for the April 22nd LILA Foundation's Spring Gala Fundraiser are available through the EventBrite website until April 16. To learn more about the Gala, please refer our Events Page. We hope you won't miss this chance to spend an enjoyable evening out and help ensure the success of the school's long-term financial health!
  • Gender Equality Survey: 9th grade Human Geography students in Profe Erin and Profe Natalie's class have created a survey studying gender equality. They've surpassed their initial goal of 500 respondents and now hope to get over 1000 completed surveys, especially from international participants. Links are available in English and in Spanish.
