February is Black History Month, which is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. 

Every year, during the month of January, Texas recognizes school boards for their commitment to public education.  

LAE has an amazing group of dedicated individuals who give of their time in service to the students and staff of our school.  

Heartfelt thanks to our governing board members for all they do!

Congratulations to the Teachers and Staff of the 2nd Nine Weeks!


¡Felicitaciones a los maestros y al personal de las segundas nueve semanas!
