Message from the PTA President

As the 2019-20 academic year comes to a close, I would like to say THANKS to all of our outgoing PTA Board members for their services to the school, our children, and the PTA.

I would like to give a special ‘shout out’ to Roger Stattel. He has served as the PTA’s Treasurer for the last two years. Words can not express my appreciation. He has been my go to person during the first year of my PTA Presidency and makes the job of a Treasurer look easy. He talks and makes budget sheets understandable to all of us nonaccountants. We are truly going to miss his service to the PTA. Please send Roger an email, text, note to thank him for all he has done for Louise Archer. Thank you is not enough!

Over the summer, please continue to support Louise Archer families. Thank you to all that have donated and continue to donate for Giant gift cards even through Belong! Or by leaving a gift card on my doorstep. If you can please continue to contribute through this partnership with Belong! Or by leaving Giant gift cards on my door step. Through this extraordinary effort with “Belong!” which has partnered with several churches in Vienna to help support vulnerable families that have been affected by this pandemic. These funds will help support families in our pyramid, specifically Madison, Cunningham Park, Marshall Rd and Louise Archer and they continue to distribute gift cards weekly. We truly need folks to continue to donate either online or at my doorstep.

Gift cards can continue to be dropped off at my house in the box on my front porch at 343 Orchard St. NW, Vienna, VA 22180 and we will get them to Belong! For the weekly distribution to our families. To contribute to Belong!- Click on the Belong link below. Choose from the drop down menu once you click “Vienna Students Food Initiative.”

When you put in your amount, in the Address field- instead of the donor’s street address, write in your school (Louise Archer). The staff will be able to track all funds this way to ensure that these funds are used for the listed school only.

If you can please make a small donation this week as these families continue to need food assistance.

Have a good and safe summer!!
