Uniform Bank Open on Conference Day—February 1
The Uniform Bank will be open from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. during Conference Day for Grades PK2–8 on Wednesday, February 1. The uniform bank is located in the 2nd and 3rd-grade hallway. Directional signs will be in place. The Spirit Store will also be open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
We need families to donate gently used uniforms your children have outgrown. Please send in clean, bagged items with your child in advance of the sale so that we can restock our shelves. Bins will be in place at the Welcome Center and the Lower School/PREP car line beginning Tuesday, January 17.
Promote Your Business in the New LPA Business Directory
It’s not too late to add your business to the LPA Business Directory. The school is frequently asked for referrals to businesses affiliated with WA families. This is an avenue for current WA families and alumni families to raise awareness of their businesses and services in the WA community. Visit wa.edu/lpabiz, and click “Add Listing.” Click here to download step-by-step instructions. The fee to be included in the directory is $250, and all proceeds support the work that the LPA does for our school, including faculty and staff appreciation, hospitality at school events, treats for students, and more. The directory is promoted through the WA App, eNews, social media, our annual PawPrint, various event programs, and the WA website. Our extended community includes a reach of over 5,000 constituents, in addition to the 800 families enrolled this school year, so this is an excellent opportunity for exposure! If you have questions or would like additional information, please contact email@example.com.
Click here to download the LPA Prayer and Care Team calendar. Please use this perpetual prayer calendar each month to join us in praying for our school, leadership, faculty, staff, students, and their families. We encourage you to pray for each request by the day of the month. If you would like to share a personal prayer request with the prayer and care team, you may email them at firstname.lastname@example.org. Special thanks to Darylena Stewart and Gaby Valdivia, the Prayer & Care Team Leaders, who lead a group of volunteers who pray and serve the needs of families as they arise.
