6th Grade Celebration Update:
Due to Covid-19 and the closure of school we will not be able to have the formal 6th grade celebration that we had planned on. We are waiting to see how the next 6-8 weeks unfold and then will provide an update with an alternative plan.
Our goal is to gather the 6th grade together, when it is deemed safe, and celebrate. Our plan is to have a potluck picnic at school or Peterson Lane park. The kids can wear their 6th grade shirts (these are being ordered), bring their yearbooks and reconnect after a long absence. We will have DJ music (not professional but free) and hopefully a photobooth if we have enough money in the Class Gift Donation Fund after the PTA has been reimbursed.(see below for more information) We will also show the 6th grade slideshow and then provide either a digital download link, DVD or CD for each student to keep.
Once we have a formal plan and it’s safe to gather we will update you all.
Please keep reading to see how you can help right now:
Class Gift: Every year the 6th grade class gives a gift(s) to the school. This year our class gifted the school the following items:
- Breakout EDU learning game and Games for Math Workshop & Hallway (For 6th Grade Use Only)
- Balls, Goals and Balance Beams for PE classes.
- (30) child size one button mice for the 30 computers in the Tech Lab
These items were purchased in the Fall so that our students could use them and benefit from them during their final year at Louise Archer. I am so glad, given the current situation, that our kids were able to use the gifts for 5-6 months. Thank you to the PTA for fronting the money for our class gift. Please donate to the class gift now so we can pay back the money fronted by the PTA.

Slide Show: We are still compiling a slide show. The file will be shared with every student via a secured source. We are still trying to determine the best and most economical way to do this. Our plan is to present the slideshow at a 6th grade picnic this summer and then distribute it to all the 6th grade students.
Thank you for all your support! We hope you are all safe and healthy and hope to see your 6th grade students this summer so we can send them off properly to middle school.
