Notes from the Backpack: Your Child's Career Exploration Starts Now

We often ask kids what they want to be when they grow up, but how often do we help them figure out the answer? We invited Jean Eddy, Executive Director of the American Student Assistance (ASA) and ASA’s “Solve It” contest winner and high school student, Elliana Cabellon, to talk about career exploration. They share how families can help kids follow their passions, plan for their futures and explore STEM career pathways. Listen now. 

Please join us in us in volunteering for LASA PTSA

PFLASA and LASA PTSA have teamed up to do great things for the LASA Community. PFLASA will focus inwards and LASA PTSA will focus outwards with the core goals of advocacy and parent engagement. We will also do core programing that is only available to PTA, eg. Reflections, Texas PTA Connect Programs, Share the Love, Rally Day, gathering of the Austin ISD High School PTSA Presidents, and others. We communicate with our neighbors, trustees and coordinate the Memorial Day event with the community.
