How can you help?
Class Gift: For the class gift this year, the 6th graders would like to present the school with some improvements in the school courtyard. The Class of 2018 gift to the school will include some additional seating, some added shade and beautification of the courtyard area. The 6th grade celebration chairs are coordinating this gift effort with a Louise Archer Alum who is doing his Eagle Scout project in the courtyard. His project consists of cleaning up the garden area, fixing/refinishing the picnic tables and preparing the garden beds for planting in the courtyard. The additional seating and shade provided by the 6th grade class would enhance the courtyard area and make it a useable space for the upper grades for lunches, class projects, or quiet reading time.
Please make your contribution by April 10th so we can buy the items we need and have them in place by the end of April so our 6th graders can enjoy their gift to the school before they graduate. You can make your donation below.
Baby Photo Game: Please send in one baby photo (age 2 years or younger) of your sixth grader with the child’s full name and homeroom teacher’s name written on the back. Please put it in a sealed envelope and have your child give it to the homeroom teacher or put in the box in the front office. Photos might be trimmed for display. They will be returned. Please send in all baby photos by May 11th.
Photo Slide Show: Please upload 2-3 of your favorite photos of your child that highlight their elementary school experience by May 11th. Photos may be from ANY grade and ANY school K-6, but MUST be school-related: class parties, picnics, field trips, band concerts, science fair, Biography Museum, Colonial Day, etc. You may submit these digital photos by uploading them via this link: https://laes6thgradecelebration.shutterfly.com/ Enter password: LAES
You do not need to have a Shutterfly account to submit photos. Please make sure your photo files include your child’s first and last name so that we can make sure everyone is well-represented in the slideshow that ends our celebration. Each sixth grader will receive a copy of the slideshow before graduation.
Volunteer: Volunteer opportunities coming soon.
Health Concerns?: Please send an email to the 6th grade celebration chairs if you have any health concerns for your child that you would like to address. This event will be held in the gym at Louise Archer. There will be a DJ and the music is loud. There is also a disco ball/flashing lights. The pod area of the school will be a quieter area for children to go outside of the gym. In the pod, there will be quiet games, pre-packaged snacks, and a chance for children to take a break from the gym, if they need it. The remainder of the school is off limits during this event.
