Class Gift

Every year the Sixth Grade class gives a gift to the school. We owe LAES much gratitude particularly due to the unprecedented events of the past two years. The Sixth Grade class was surveyed about what they would like to give to LAES. The students ideas were amazing and very thoughtful and included items such as:

  • recess/playground equipment
  • soccer goal post
  • football brackets and volleyball nets
  • a sunshine sign
  • school flag
  • sculpture of Ms. Archer
  • all kinds of seating, whether an outdoor bench, or in the gym, beanbags, or couch

Based on how much is raised through class donations we will be purchasing items from the students recommendations. You can donate to the class gift when you purchase your students ticket. The deadline to donate is May 13th.

Baby Photo Game/Slideshow

Please submit 1 baby photo and up to 12 photos of your child from school events K-12. The non-baby pictures should be from school events only throughout the students’ school years K-6. School events include field trips, class presentations, Sock Hop, Pizza Bingo, Skate Night, Field Day, etc. Please email the Photo Subcommittee for the Google Photos link.

In order for us to ensure we include every student please caption/title/label your photos with the names of the students included and if possible, the activity and grade. (For example, Mary, Raul, and Kai at 4th grade Jamestown field trip). You can add this information in Google Photos by clicking the little i in a circle in the upper right-hand corner.

The subcommittee is requesting that all pictures be submitted by April 18th.

Volunteer!! We need your help to make this event a success both before, during and after (clean up) of the event. We will also need many items such as food and drinks donated. Please volunteer to sign up when you receive a Sign-Up Genius link.


We will need many chaperones for the evening. A Sign-Up Genius link with job descriptions will be sent to parents closer to the event. Chaperoning/Volunteering is open to all sixth-grade parents. The only way a parent can attend the event is by VOLUNTEERING for the event.
