Weekly Parent Email – February 19, 2021

February 19, 2021

It’s an exciting time here at LAU because next week is Spirit Week! Each year, our Student Body Ambassadors plan a week of fun to celebrate being a “Burger,” and each year, it’s an absolute hit. I hope Spirit Week provides fun and exciting events for your hard-working student.

Here is an overview of the week’s events (for more information on each day’s theme check Homeroom announcements):

  • Monday: Pajama Day
  • Tuesday: You Are What You Eat
  • Wednesday: Onesie Wednesday
  • Thursday: Ben Jr. Day
  • Friday: Burger Swag Day

As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out if there is anything we can do to make their educational experience the very best.

Executive Director, LAU


Action Items

Last reminder to apply for 2021-22: Please remember that even if your student is with us this year, you must reserve a spot with us again for the 2021-22 school year. The response to our open enrollment was unprecedented, and we are almost full. If you want to have a place with us next year, you must re-apply. Please note that this does not include registering your student for specific classes; registration for admitted students will begin at the end of March. Please apply as soon as possible so we can reserve a spot for your student.
