Did you know that the Lafayette Leopards Running Club works with three national programs to keep our students active during lunch recess? These programs, Marathon Kids, Fuel Up to Play 60 and Action for Healthy Kids provide funds, training and ideas to keep our kids active. Marathon Kids, a national program sponsored by Nike, seeks to keep kids moving with a goal of running 4 marathons in one year! Fuel Up to Play 60 is a nutrition and physical activity program, which partners with the NFL and National Dairy Council to encourage kids to create a healthy life. Action for Healthy Kids’ vision is for every student to be healthy, active and ready to learn. By partnering with these established programs, the Running Club seeks to keep our students healthy and moving! The students set goals, run/walk to achieve these goals, while laying the groundwork for a healthy and active life. Running Club is held every Tuesday and Thursday during lunch recess on the playground. Come join us!
Hello Lafayette Families!
We hope you are having a great summer so far! Thanks to all of the families that have signed up to help with the garden this summer. You can see their progress on our facebook page here.
We have Jump Start beginning August 21st for all the new kindergartners coming to Lafayette this fall. The PTA will have a table ready to answer questions and meet the new families. Our Principal, Cindy Chaput will have plan to have a coffee hour set aside that week (date TBD) to meet new families as well. Look for new spirit wear to purchase and more information coming about school supplies. We are not posting lists of school supplies to buy as the school is buying school supplies for all kids this year ahead of time to save time and money for all parents. You will hear more about how you can donate $$ to cover the costs of school supplies.
Enjoy the rest of summer, stop by and play at the playground and enjoy the garden!
