Principal's Message

Dear Families,

Welcome to Lilja Elementary!

Our mission is to support the growth of each and every child in our school.  We believe in well-rounded development, and the learning experiences we provide are carefully designed to support your child’s cognitive, social, emotional, and physical growth.  We know that every child wants to succeed, and we are excited to partner with you to ensure that success!

Our curriculum is rigorous, but engaging.  It is designed to help your child master the common core state standards, but also to help your child develop the “4 C’s”: creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and communication skills. We support ongoing social and emotional learning through classroom lessons and school-wide programming.

We service children in grades K to 4, and provide single-grade and multi-age classroom settings.  In addition to the classroom instruction, students work with a visual arts teacher, PE teacher, music teacher, and a librarian at least once a week. Play is an important part of an elementary school program, and recess is scheduled daily.  We also house two classrooms for Natick’s preschool program.

On the left side of this page you can find a link to our Lilja School Handbook.  This handbook, in conjunction with our website, can provide you with further information and details about our school and programs.  I encourage you to check them out!

If you have any further questions, please feel free to connect with us.
