6th Grade Celebration Parents Zoom Meeting

At the end of the 6th grade year, Louise Archer PTA hosts a celebration to mark our children’s transition from elementary school to middle school.

The date of the celebration and the location are not confirmed at this time. We are working with the school administration on these items. Typically the celebration is held at Louise Archer, but due to the construction, we will be exploring other options.

Though it is only January, and we are still working out the two most important details (date and location), there is much that needs to be done to make this event a success. So let’s get started!

There will be a Zoom 6th Grade Celebration Parents Meeting on Monday, Jan. 23 at 8pm. During this meeting we will walk through our current thinking for the event, the various action items for each child and – importantly – seek volunteers to help with the planning. Lots of hands are needed to make this event a success, no volunteers will be turned away!

If you are interested in being a 6th Grade Celebration Committee Chair, please email me. As of right now, the committees needed are (there may be more added as we go along):

  1. Slideshow Chair & Committee: This committee will collect, organize, and put together the slideshow for the 6th Grade Celebration.

  2. Decorations Chair & Committee: This committee will create a vision for the look and feel of the event and implement it on the day of with the help of volunteers.

  3. Entertainment Chair & Committee: This committee will coordinate the DJ/music, photo booth, and other activities for the 6th Grade Celebration. This committee will also coordinate the favor for the students.

  4. Food & Beverage Chair & Committee: This committee will help develop the menu and source the food and drink for the event.

  5. Class Gift Chair & Committee: This committee will help determine, with the students, what their lasting gift will be to the LAES community. They will also purchase the class gift and arrange for delivery to LAES.

  6. Volunteer Coordinator: This person is responsible for overseeing volunteer activities for the 6th Grade Celebration, including creating a SignUp Genius.

  7. Invitation Chair: This person is responsible for the design and delivery of the 6th Grade Celebration invitation, and is responsible for managing RSVPs.

  8. Sponsorships Chair & Committee: This committee will work to find sponsors for the 6th Grade Celebration to offset the costs we will incur, like photo booth, DJ, etc.

Please email for Zoom meeting information.
