Parents & Friends of LASA (PFLASA)

 

PFLASA 
Parents and Friends of the Liberal Arts and Science Academy (PFLASA) operates as a resource to teachers, parents/guardians, and students at the Liberal Arts and Science Academy by organizing events to build a sense of school community, providing various means for the LASA to communicate to parents/guardians and students, and to raise needed funds for: 1) classroom materials, 2) teacher and staff professional development, 3) books, 4) educational and community events, and 5) equipment and other resources that enhance the students' education

Communication
PFLASA compiles and distributes the "Lots of LASA" weekly electronic newsletter to keep you up-to-date on school activities. We collect information from students, teachers, parents/guardians and the administration, so if you have any LASA school, club or sports news be sure to submit it (submission links are located in the newsletter). The deadline for submission is Thursday afternoon for the following newsletter.

PFLASA also has a LASA Facebook page. If you are on Facebook, click here and "like" our page.

PFLASA meetings
To facilitate communication, PFLASA has regularly scheduled meetings and parents/guardians are encouraged to attend. We typically meet during the school year on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month, with occasional variation. One evening meeting per semester is scheduled to accommodate parents/guardians who are unable to attend daytime meetings. A link to the meeting schedule is posted on the LASA website under the Parents tab. Meeting times are also announced in "Lots of LASA."

Magnet education support
PFLASA secures resources to support LASA administration and faculty. We do this through cash purchases, in-kind donations, and by linking outside resources to school needs.
PFLASA solicits financial support from the PFLASA community through an annual fundraising appeal every fall. In addition, keep your eyes open for "Wish Of The Week," an in-kind donation request featured in "Lots of LASA."

Community
Because LASA families are scattered all over Austin, PFLASA recognizes the importance to build a sense of school community. PFLASA organizes numerous social events to make LASA a school with heart. Please volunteer whenever you are able.

Some of our events include a New Teacher Tour where incoming teachers travel by school bus to visit a few LASA homes and meet LASA families on each end of town; a Welcome Back to School lunch for teachers and staff; Bring Your Parent to School Days where you can attend your student's classes; Coffee House, LASA's evening under the stars featuring student entertainment; Senior Salute, an end-of-the-year, off-campus event to send off the seniors in-style; and so much more.
