Calling all volunteers! We have setup a new site for volunteering for the auction at SignUp Genius. You can go here to check out the fun ways to get involved. The old sign up has been transferred to this site so if you volunteered already you are good to go!
Any student that raised $350 or more during the 2016 Lafayette Super Silly Fun Walk-A-Thon is being invited to a day-time frozen yogurt party courtesy of Admiral Menchie’s! Party invitations and permission slips were sent home today with each student that qualified. Lafayette sponsorships like this sure are SWEET.
K & 1st Grade Party: Wednesday, December 7th 12;15 – 12:45
If you need the Menchie’s Party Field Trip Permission Slip, it is available to download. Print it, sign it, and get it back to school!
Several Walk-A-Thon Chair Positions are still available for next year. Sign up at http://lafayettepta.com/volunteer

The Library Book Fair Fundraiser is Coming – December 1st – 7th!
The Book Fair is quickly approaching and we’re hoping that you may be available to stop by during Lunch Recess or after school. Proceeds raised range from 40 – 60% of sales and will be used to purchase books for the school and Library Program. Last year we used the funds to purchase over 300 books for the Library, plus every classroom and had a guest author, Annie Crawley who visited and shared about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
Clip & Send the Newspaper Flyer Order Form (remember to add 9.8% sales tax).
The Library cannot hold cash orders before the Fair opens on Thursday, December 1st. Checks are accepted anytime & made payable to the Lafayette PTA. This another great opportunity to help the kids in the classroom and shop for the holidays!

This event was only successful because of the hard work of all of the students, the Lafayette staff, and the parent volunteers. It is amazing that we can come together as a community and make this happen every year. The amount of work that goes into this thing is incredible. Jen and Maya, our school is SO LUCKY to have you – thank you for all of your hard work.
