Chalk the School and Stock the Fridge

In order to show Louise Archer teachers and staff how excited we are for the new school year, we want to start by giving them the welcome they deserve! We will be “chalking” the sidewalks and parking lots with special messages from our kids. We will also be “Stocking the Fridge” and the Teachers Lounge with snacks for their first week back!

Please join us Sunday, August 18th from 7-8pm to “chalk” the school. We would love for everyone to come and write a special message in the parking lot and on the sidewalks, welcoming back to school Louise Archer teachers and staff. If you have sidewalk chalk please bring it but if you don’t –don’t worry there will be plenty. This is obviously a weather permitting event. Also please note the school will NOT be open so we will not have access to any restrooms.

If you volunteer to donate items to “stock the fridge”, please deliver them to LAES on Monday, August 19th, between 8:30- 10 am. 

If you have questions, please contact LAES PTA Vice President, Liz Lucca at liz.lucca@gmail.com. 

Reflections Project

Looking for a fun, creative outlet for your kids for the Summer? Have them start working on their Reflections project! They can submit a work of art in any (or all) of six categories including visual arts, photography, film, literature, dance and music!

The theme this year is “Look Within.” Submissions will be due Wednesday, October 16th, but it’s great to get started on something fabulous now! Make sure to check out the rules and regulations. We can’t wait to see what Louise Archer students create!

LA5K Open Positions

Did you know that the LA5K is our biggest fundraiser of the year? BUT we still need a fundraising chair for next year! Please consider volunteering for this role. Maybe even do it with a friend. This person would identify and contact both old and new sponsors — this is a two hour/week commitment from start of school to the end of October.

We also need another shadow for the LA5K. We’ve got one volunteer (thanks Brandon Lambert) to shadow, but we need one more!

Please email alice.tran@gmail.com if you are interested or have any questions.
