Field Day is a celebration of the end of the school year with a lot of activities and games.  We will have fun stations like water balloon toss, rope climbing, 3-legged race, ring toss, etc and of course, a cold treat!  The stations are both inside the school and outside on the playground, each run by a teacher and at least one parent volunteer.

Please mark your calendars and consider helping out!

Also, if anyone is interested in co-chairing Field Day for this year or next, please contact Wendy at wpersonett@gmail.com.  Thanks!

Congratulations to our 2016-17Golden Acorn Winners!

Thank you to our Golden Acorn Winners for 2016-17! Ken Bodensteiner and Leslie Francis. Your dedication and volunteerism has made a big difference at Lafayette for many years!


What is a Golden Acorn Award? A Golden Acorn Award is presented by a local PTA or council to a school or community volunteer in recognition of her or his dedication and service to children and youth. Since the beginning of this program in the 1930s, more than 54,000 Golden Acorn Awards have been presented to volunteers throughout Washington state. Recipients receive a certificate and pin, and a contribution is made in their name to the Washington State PTA Scholarship Program that benefits students.
