Auction Items for Sale Online and Staff Appreciation Week

PTA Announcements

Auction: We had a great event Friday night and hope all of the attendees had fun.  It was a very successful auction and we will be able to share the final numbers after the break. Thank you to everyone who helped from securing auction items, to working on and donating to class gifts, making donations and attending the auction.  

We still have spots available for purchase in teacher parties, some of the family hosted parties, and gift cards.  Please check out our online store for purchase and payment instructions. These items are on a first come first served basis and no refunds will be given.   These items will only be available for purchase until Thursday, April 28th. 

Yearbook: "Attention photographer parents and teachers!"
We are looking for a few more photos to complete our  2015-2016 Lilja Yearbook. Please feel free to send along a cute photo of your student if it was taken at Lilja or on a field trip with the school. These yearbooks are meant to create school spirit, and be a lasting memory of each students experience at Lilja. Please email your photo to lizziegorman@gmail.com and identify what grade your student is in, so the photo is placed on the correct page. Thanks so much!

Staff Appreciation: Please help the PTA show our incredible staff how much we appreciate their efforts during staff appreciation week. We will kick off the week with a luncheon on Monday(5/2) and a wonderful breakfast on Wednesday(5/4).

Outside Events

The Rotary Club of Natick is excited to announce the 13th annual Tour De Natick bike ride on Sunday June 19, 2016. 
 
As you may know the ride benefits Natick Public Schools in many ways:

  • Scholarships for graduating seniors from Natick High School
  • Annual Elementary School Dictionary Project
  • Other education initiatives
  • In an effort to further support the Natick Public Schools, the Rotary Club of Natick would like to give a gift of $500.00 to the PTO of the school with highest percentage of student riders.   

Students and their families can sign up ahead of time at http://www.tourdenatick.org (click on "Register") or on the day of the ride.  In addition, Teachers ride for Free.
 
After the ride each student should come to the registration area to have their name placed on a board to be counted.  We will announce the winner at the event.  We hope to take a photo of the group of students from each school.  Students that cannot stay for the picture will be counted.
