Earth Day Recycling Drive!

Earth Day is April 22nd. To celebrate, the Lilja community will be collecting recyclable bottles and cans for the entire month of April. Funds from the bottle/can deposits will be used to make a donation to the Natick Service Council, to support local families in need.
How can you help?  One of two ways:  1) Bring in bottles and cans, and place them in boxes in the lobby or ASAP entrances.  2) Return bottles and cans on your own, and turn in the money to school. Money can be turned in to teachers, in envelopes marked “PTO Earth Day.”  Thanks in advance for supporting our community and a healthy Earth!

Wilson Middle School PTO is sponsoring our first Color-A-Thon Event! This fun 2 mile race will take place around the middle school. A portion of the proceeds from this fun and healthy race will support the Natick Special Olympics.  Our goal is to raise $7,500 and have 250 people participate. The race is open to students at all of the Natick Public Schools as well as staff and family members. The cost to register for this Color-A-Thon event is only $30
It includes a t-shirt and a color pack! After the event, there will be a Color Blast Party with music by DJ Mike, Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, Food and Beverage Concessions and Big Blasts of Color!
Flyer can be found in the Virtual Backpack. Please contact Christine Kingdon at with any questions.

If you ever have any questions or concerns, or would like to post something in our Community Announcements section, please feel free to contact us at or any member of the board directly.
