Summer Break is Here!

Congratulations 5th graders!  We’ll miss you; please keep in touch!  Thank you to our amazing teachers & staff for an outstanding 2017-2018 school year!  Thank you to our community and your generous support of our school and PTA!  We had a great year at Lafayette Elementary School.    We look forward to seeing all of you in the fall!  We hope you all have a fun & safe summer!



School Supplies 2018/2019

Dear Lafayette Families,

We want to get the word out before summer break that for the second year in a row, the Lafayette PTA will be purchasing school supplies in bulk for all students for the 2018-19 school year.  The goal of the school supply program is to simplify purchasing and make the process more equitable, economical, and efficient for families as well as for our teachers.  We need your help to cover these costs in support of this program.  We are keeping costs as low as possible and ask each family to contribute $40 per student. Your payment covers all standard needs for one student (except a personal backpack, lunchbox and water bottle).  The PTA is committed to ensuring that every student has the supplies they’ll need for a great school year.  Once the supplies are delivered, we will need volunteers to help organize and distribute.  Please contact Project Coordinator Julia Wester to volunteer.

To get the school supplies “to-do” off of your list now, make your $40 per student contribution by clicking the button below and be sure to put “School Supplies” along with the name of your student(s) in the note section.

Thank you in advance for supporting the Lafayette PTA and our school supply program.

If you have problems with the PayPal link, please let us know.

Field Day June 21st

June 21, 12:45 – 2:15 pm


Field Day is a celebration of the end of the school year with a lot of activities and games.  There will be fun stations like water balloon toss, reverse dunk tank (bring change of clothes), 50 yard dash, and of course cold treats! The stations are both inside the school and outside on the playground, each run by a teacher and at least one parent volunteer.  Students are encouraged to wear their Walk-a-Thon shirts to promote school spirit.  Parents and guardians are welcome to join, this one is going to be FUN!
