Louise Archer Elementary STEAM Extravaganza

Please Save the Date! The Louise Archer Elementary STEAM Extravaganza will be held on Thursday March 14th at 6-8pm.

The STEAM Extravaganza is a PTA sponsored extracurricular voluntary activity open to all Louise Archer Elementary students. The STEAM Extravaganza is replacing the Science Fair with a more open format for an opportunity for the students to learn about any science-related subject and present what they learned rather than to only conduct science experiments. During the Science Extravaganza students will have the opportunity to present anything they have created or investigated that is related to science and technology. Some examples include science fair projects, Lego robotics, and computer programs. Students will be asked to present and display their projects (i.e. on a tri-fold board or similar display) and to be prepared for a brief oral presentation during the event.

Save the Date for Pizza Bingo

Please join us for Pizza Bingo on Friday, April 19th 5:30-7pm. Pizza will be available for sale (cash or credit card) starting at 5:30pm in the cafeteria. We will also be offering pre-sale pizza – order ahead to skip the line! Details to come. Bingo will be in the gym from 6-7pm. There will be a ton of prizes!

Stock the Teacher Supply Closet

The PTA is calling for supply donations to stock the supply closet! In support of our wonderful teachers, the PTA created a supply closet to help replenish needed supplies this past Fall. We’ve traditionally had a supply collection during Teacher Appreciation Week which is too late in the year for the teachers to use the supplies. So, we are moving up our supply donation drive up! If you would like to donate any of the following items we have several drop off options:

  1. the porches of 435 Lewis St NW or 2240 Loch Lomond Drive
  2. for student drop offs: bin by cafeteria/kiss n ride
  3. for drop off during school hours: bin in the front office.

Please drop off supplies starting Monday, February 12th thru Friday, March 1st. If you have any questions, you can email Alice Suh or Peggy Femenella.

Thank you for your generosity!
