Your Weekly Update from Lilja Elementary School
Dr. Marscher's Message
On Monday, 3rd grade welcomed Tim Turner from Plimoth Patuxet Museam to learn about the daily life of a Wampanoag in the 17th century. Students were fascinated by the tools and and animal pelts, and asked many thoughtful questions as they contemplated a lifestyle without many of the things they are familiar with!

-Please remember to display the sign in the window that has your student(s) name and class code (e.g. 4T). If you do. no have one you may make your own, or email email@example.com and we will make one for you.

The PTO is excited to announce that Lilja will again be helping the Natick Service Council by sponsoring Natick families in need this Thanksgiving. NSC distributes Thanksgiving meals to over 200 Natick families per year. For over a decade, each classroom at Lilja School donated the ingredients for a Thanksgiving meal and has provided twenty full turkey dinners to the Natick Service Council (NSC).
