Lilja will again be working with the Natick Service Council to provide local families in need with a Thanksgiving meal. Each classroom will sponsor a family and provide all the fixings for a traditional Thanksgiving feast. All donations need to be at the school by 8:30 am Tuesday, November 24th. Food will be delivered to the Service Council at 9am that morning. Please contact your Room Parent/s if you have any questions.
Please mark your calendars for Friday, April 8, 2016 at the Wellesley College Club for our school auction. This event happens every other year and is a main source of fundraising for our school. We are having our first Auction meeting Wednesday, December 2nd at the Morse Tavern at 7pm. Please contact Christine Kingdon if you have any questions.
Tilly & Salvy’s
Thank you to everyone who attended the Pumpkins for Our School Festival. Lilja received $1500 from this event. We greatly appreciate all that Rick and his team at Tilly’s do for Lilja School and the Natick community. They are always giving back to our community, this event in October raised over $4800 for Natick schools and they have donated over $63,000 to Natick schools since 2001.
Coats for Kids
Lilja is once again participating in this great program. There is a box set up in the lobby for donations. PLEASE note that only the following items will be accepted: Warm winter coats, gently used, good quality, all sizes needed. Once the coats are collected they are professionally cleaned by Antons and distributed by social service agencies to those in need within the local community. PLEASE DO NOT put coats with rips, tears, broken zippers, permanent stains, sweatshirts, vests, or Spring coats. The coat drive will go till January 6th.
Please do not hesitate to contact a member of the board with any questions.
