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. Please take a few moments to look over the opportunities available this year and help out where your family schedule allows. 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.
School Picture Day
It was a beautiful day on Friday for our School Photo Day. It could not have happened without all our volunteers. Thank you to Mary Kate Applegate, Renee Vekiarides, Theresa Strang, Debbie Cartmell, Erin Clark, Andrea Smith, Heidi Rodriguez and Courtney Brillant for volunteering their time during the day. Thank You also to Meghann Doiron and Linsey Evans for Co-Chairing this event.
Fourth Grade Fundraising
There will be a meeting on Wednesday, October 14th at 7PM in the library. This meeting is open to all fourth grade families. We will be discussing the year end fourth grade activities and brainstorming ways to raise funds. If you are unable to attend but would like to be involved please contact Gina Arthur.
Please check out the partner programs. These are easy ways to help fundraise for the school while you do your shopping. You can register your card or get information on Stop & Shop, Amazon Smile, Box Tops and Lands End School Uniforms.
PTA Upcoming Events
Our first restaurant night is on Thursday, October 8th from 4:00-9:00PM at Panera bread in the Stop and Shop Plaza. You must present the flyer for Lilja to receive credit so remember to print it before you go!
Pumpkin Fest at Tilly and Salvy’s
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. Proceeds from pumpkin sales on this day will be donated to Natick Schools. In years past Lilja has received almost $1000. Please mark your calendars for this fun event!
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, these opportunities are sure to create lasting memories far beyond game-day! Please return all payments (cash, card or check) and completed order forms by October 29th 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 at firstname.lastname@example.org or in the Celtics front office at 617-399-8453.
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.
