GLEnet Tips


A Photo Opp for You! LEA wants to celebrate teachers and students in Lutheran schools during the 2019 LEA Convocation. You can participate in the celebration—even if you’re not able to attend. Here are the details:

  • Submit several photos of teachers interacting with children—relational. Colorful close-ups would be good! These can be from this summer or from last school year.
  • Avoid photos of your building and posed group shots.
  • The best photos will be hi res JPG (at least 1920x1080).
  • Submission of photos includes permission to use those photos in a video montage that celebrates you and your students— shown at the convocation and in post-convocation promotionals.
  • Upload your photos to https://www.dropbox.com/request/SKlTrVc0lN9wGFagCo5O.
  • If you want your school identified, please find a creative way to do it within the photo specifications above. Avoid static shots of your school’s sign.
  • Photos will be accepted through the end of August.
