Message From The PTA President

I wanted to take a moment to thank my incredible PTA Board and all of the wonderful PTA chairs and volunteers who made this year possible. It has been my absolute pleasure to serve as PTA president alongside such a talented and dedicated group. And to all of the LAES families, thank you for bearing with us as we had to deal with and adapt to all of the changes that COVID brought these past few years. It has been a challenge, but I think the PTA and school came out stronger for it. I hope that everyone has a wonderful summer, and I look forward to seeing all of your friendly faces around town soon.

Many thanks,
Regan Morgan
Louise Archer PTA President

Sixth Grade Celebration — Event Night Information

Tomorrow is the Big Day! The Sixth Grade Celebration at 7pm at the American Legion (330 Center Street). Please visit our Event Night Information webpage providing logistics about the event. View the map showing where to drop off your students for the event. You cannot park and walk them in. Reminder all parents are invited to the slide show at 9pm. Do not come early we will not let you into the pavilion or the grassy area. See everyone tomorrow.

Thank You To Our Sponsors

The LAES PTA funds a portion of the Sixth Grade Celebration, but it is not enough to cover all associated expenses. This means the support of our sponsors is critical to the success of the event. We are so grateful for these sponsors and their support for the students of LAES as they graduate and head to middle school!

Please take a moment to check out all our wonderful sponsors.
