The Louise Archer PTA provides a framework for parents, teachers and staff to work together and create opportunities to enrich our childrens' school experience and help them to learn and grow.  Its mission is to help our children by helping the school in a myriad of ways, from volunteering and leading events and activities, to providing funding assistance where needed, to working with staff and administration on curriculum issues and other aspects of student life.  Programs supported by our PTA include:
