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.
