Welcome back to our returning Lilja families we hope you had a great Summer. Welcome to our new Lilja students and their families. We hope everyone had a good first week of school.
We will be sending out our welcome packet early next week with information on all of our PTA programs and volunteer opportunities this year. Please bookmark the PTA website as a source of information for all things Lilja. Our website will be updated each week with information on activities at school. We will no longer be sending home a paper calendar each month. The Google calendar will be updated throughout the month as activities and events are added town wide.
The PTA would like to thank Hamel Bros. Landscaping for the tremendous changes they were able to make to the grounds at Lilja this summer. They designed a plan for Lilja and were able to execute it and even finish a few days early. Lilja has never looked better and we are looking forward to working with them throughout the year. We can’t say enough good things about Paul and Dave Hamel and their hardworking crew. They were generous with their time and resources and we are very grateful that they were willing to take on the project.
We would also like to thank Richard MacPherson from Bee Lines who was generous enough to donate his time and services to the PTA to finish up our basketball court project. The original contractor did not finish the job and Rich stepped in and completed it.
Box Tops Classroom Contest - Every Box Top is worth 10¢ for Lilja! The classroom that submits the most Box Tops collection sheets by September 30th will win a special treat! Print off collection sheets or you can glue/tape Box Tops to any 8.5" x 11" paper.
Tour de Natick
We are pleased to announce that Lilja tied with Memorial school for the most riders in the June event. It was a very wet but successful event. Lilja and Memorial school will each receive $250. We will put that money to use this year! Thank you to everyone who participated.
