From the Desk of the PTA President

Hello Louise Archer Families! I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Regan Morgan and I am excited to serve as your PTA president for the remainder of this year and next year. My daughter is in Ms. Toth’s 5th grade class, and we have loved being a part of the Louise Archer community ever since she joined the school in 3rd grade.

We have the most incredible and active PTA that runs programs that benefit all of the Louise Archer students. Have you ever run the 5K or watched your child dance at the Sock Hop? Has your child ever gotten a book at the Book Fair or yelled BINGO during Pizza Bingo? Have they ever loved having friends sign their yearbook? These are just some of the fantastic programs that are put on by the PTA, and we need your help to keep them going next year. Please take a look at the below open committee positions and email us to volunteer or to learn more.

  • Pizza Bingo/Silent Auction Co-Chair (4 co-chairs needed)
  • Sock Hop Co-Chair (2 co-chairs needed)
  • Yearbook Committee Co-Chair (2 co-chairs needed)
  • Picture Day Coordinator
  • Before/After School Committee Co-Chair
  • Green/Garden Committee Chair
  • Volleyball Chair
  • Odyssey of the Mind Chair
  • Box Tops for Education/Loyalty Rewards Program Chair
  • Reflections Co-Chair
  • Walk and Wheels Committee Chair

Thanks so much!
Regan

Principal and Assistant Principal Appreciation Week

In honor of Principal and Assistant Principal Appreciation Week, the PTA and the Sunshine Committee have created a padlet. We want every student to leave a message for Mrs. Makrigiorgos and Mrs. Condra letting them know how much we appreciate them. Its going to be one big virtual hug!

  • Students will need to sign into Padlet with their FCPS Google accounts (@fcpsschools.net).
  • Please note that due to possible digital citizenship issues, every post will be reviewed before it becomes active in the Padlet. This means students may not see their posts appear immediately after recording a message, writing a note, drawing a picture etc. for Ms. Condra and Ms. Makrigiorgos.
