PTA Announcements

Lilja Directory
All families who would like to have their information in the directory must complete the Google form by Friday, October 30th. We do not receive any information from the school and do not use information from previous years. The only way to be in the directory is to complete the form

Volunteer Opportunities
We are still in need of volunteers for our events this year. Please take a few moments to look over the opportunities available this year and help out where your family schedule allows. There is a misconception that to volunteer at Lilja is a full time job, that is not true!  Our fundraising is done through single day/evening events and we need volunteers to help chair these. Much of the planning can be done over email/phone with one or no meetings required. We also need volunteers for the day of events to help set up and clean up. There will be additional items that pop up throughout the year and they will appear in our weekly eblasts. If you have any questions about the events please contact Christine Kingdon.

Lilja Wear
Will be available to look at and sign up for at the book fair this year.  We are in need of some volunteers to man the Lilja Wear table. If you are able to help out for an hour please sign up.
We have Lilja short sleeve, long sleeve and hooded sweatshirts available with the Lilja logo. For sizing, logo and color choices please print off the order form. Orders will be accepted until Tuesday, October 27th. Order forms can be dropped off in the front office. Please contact Kim Aliprantis with any questions.

Lilja Merchandise
You can now complete an order form to get your Lilja magnets, cups and dismissal note pads anytime throughout the year. Send the form into office in an envelope labelled “Lilja Merchandie” and your order will be sent home with your child. It’s that easy! 

Outside Events

Pumpkin Fest at Tilly & Salvy's
Please join us this Sunday, October 18th from 2-5PM, rain or shine. This is the 13th year of this event. There will be face painting, moon bounce, live music and crafts.

Celtics Tickets
Our school has teamed up with the Boston Celtics for a unique and fun experience! Together, we will attend a Celtics game on November 20, 2015 and receive exclusive pricing unique to our school!  From each attendee at the garden this particular night from our school, Lilja will receive $10. Aside from supporting our school and the Celtics, the students will have the chance to be awarded exclusive experiences for their participation in the fundraiser. From standing on the court with the players during the singing of the national anthem to high-fiving them as they run out from the locker room, Please return all payments (cash, card or check) and completed order forms by October 29th. Order forms should be returned to school in an envelope marked Celtics.  Please make all checks out to the Boston Celtics. If you have any immediate questions, please contact Erin Lewis by email or in the Celtics front office at 617-399-8453.

Plaster Fun Time
With the gym still out of commission we are unable to host pizza and movie events.  We have partnered with Plaster Fun Time in Framingham @ 1239 Worcester Rd for the October 28th half day.  Anyone who visits Plaster Fun Time that afternoon, 20% of all sales from those who mention your group (“I am with the Lilja Elementary School!”) are given back to Lilja. 

Please do not hesitate to contact a member of the board with any questions.
