LAEF’s Queen helps with Summer Enrichment Institute

It is a tradition that LAEF’s Royals visit the Summer Enrichment Institute (SEI) each year. Instead of a Royal Visit to one of our classrooms this year, LAEF’s reigning Queen, retired superintendent Dr. Sherry Kropp, made a visit to the LAEF offices last week to help distribute packets of materials to families who are taking one of LAEF’s virtual classes. LAEF provided a drive-thru service last week and our Queen happily stepped in to help. The families were very excited to have a Royal hand delivering materials them!

“It was so much fun to see so many families,” said Kropp about her time supporting Virtual SEI class kit distribution.

LAEF’s first session of virtual SEI began on Monday, June 8 with over 20 classes running. Session 2 will begin on June 22 and run through July 2. Fun and academic enrichment class offerings are available to students in grades TK-8. Registration for Session 2 closes on June 14. To register for classes and view flyers please visit www.LAEF4kids.org/summer.

Dr. Sherry Kropp was crowned in February at LAEF’s Royal Gala and will reign until the next Royals are crowned in February 2021. Dr. Sherry Kropp was appointed by the LAEF Board due to her strong ties to LAEF and the community, and her endless support of Los Al kids. The Royal Gala benefits the LAEF STEAM initiative and the grand total raised was nearly $135,000! The funds were raised through business sponsorships, silent auction, live auction, online auction, donations and more.
