LAES Construction Discussion – May 25 PTA Meeting

Mark your calendars for the May 25 PTA Meeting where we’ll be discussing the Louise Archer Elementary construction!

The LAES PTA is gathering questions regarding the school renovation project. Submit your questions using our online form.

The questions will be submitted to Principal Michelle Makrigiorgos, who will gather answers and details from the construction leads. The May 25 PTA Meeting will include a discussion of the construction status and answers to submitted questions.

All questions must be submitted by Wednesday, May 10th to allow time to gather answers prior to the PTA meeting.

LAES PTA Print Directory Survey

The PTA has been able to provide free, paper copies of the directory through our contract with the vendor. Unfortunately paper print copies of the LAES directory will no longer be free starting next school year. However, online and app access to the directory will remain free.

The LAES PTA is exploring whether members actually use the print copies, if members might be interested in paying for a print copy, and if the free online/app option might be sufficient for access.

Please fill out the survey.

The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, May 10th.

Also, as a reminder, the directory is available online and via app access.
