Parent Survey – Only 4 Questions

We had the best attendance at our PTA meeting in October when we had a representative come and speak about the school bond issue. We would like these meetings to be beneficial for all parents and create an opportunity to provide you with more information about issues impacting your students and families.

The PTA is trying to gauge what type of information parents would be interested in learning more about during our PTA meetings. We want to start to invite individuals to share about topics of interest to parents at Louise Archer. We are open to any and all suggestions but to facilitate we created a short survey. Please fill out the attached 4 Question survey so we can try to plan accordingly!

Did we mention its only 4 questions!?!

Local History Lovers

We would like to add Louise Archer to the Vienna Historic Registry – we need a volunteer or small committee work with the Vienna historical society to register the school. We are already a historical landmark by the town, this is just to add the school to the registry. Please contact Kristin Herrmann if you are interested.

We Need Your Box Tops – Digital and Clipped

The Box Tops for Education spring program has started with a deadline of March 1,  2020, so please start clipping the box tops and scanning your receipts!

The box tops program has released a new mobile app, requiring participants to scan their receipts thereby validating their box tops purchases. As a result of these changes, the program is phasing out the clipped box tops over the next couple of years. Louise Archer ES will continue to collect the box tops over these years so please submit the clipped box tops via the school’s pink mailbox, identifying the student’s teacher. I will also collect any grocery store receipts via the pink mailbox and scan them for you.

Please help Louise Archer Elementary School by submitting all box tops to the LAES teachers or via the pink mailbox by Friday, February 21st. The class with the most box tops will receive a frozen treats party in March.

Louise Archer ES thanks you for your support! Please email Karen Meade with any questions.
