Advertise in the 2018-2019 Louise Archer Directory
AtoZ Directories produces the Louise Archer print directory free of charge for our school and gives us a percentage of all ad sales! Our directory is a valuable resource for our school and advertisements in the printed directory and in the app are an ideal way to promote your business, firm, practice and community partnership. There is no better way to connect directly with families in our community and support our school than by advertising in the directory!
There are ad positions both in the print copy and in the online AtoZ Directory App (available from the App Store and Google Play); we’d love to fill these premium banner placements with ads promoting Louise Archer community businesses.
Please email Monica Christensen to secure your placement or for more information. We are thrilled to continue our partnership with AtoZ Directories and we know Monica will take good care of you!
As always, thank you for your participation and support!
