Art in Action
Thank You to All of Our Volunteers!
Come look at all the art displayed in the hallways.
Thank You to everyone who donated to this year’s Annual Give Campaign (AGC). It was our most successful campaign to date in both amount raised and participation rate! In gratitude, Lafayette PTA’s AGC is hosting a Family Movie Night featuring the movie SING!
Sign-up slots are still available for the Sing-a-long Community Experiences. These fun social events/learning opportunities for adults and/or children are hosted by Lafayette parents in an effort to raise money for the Lafayette PTA while socializing with other members of our school community. All proceeds benefit our kids! Interested? It’s not too late to sign up to attend the Poker Night, sign the kids up for a Lands End hike, a healthy cooking class after school or a night with Peruvian sours & apps, just to mention a few.
Thank you to everyone who has donated to this year’s Annual Give Campaign (AGC). We have raised $115K, which is $5K above our year goal of $110,000. And more importantly, we had the highest percent of community participation that we have ever reached! We couldn’t have met our goal without your help. Every donation counted and all donations were significant! We look forward to celebrating this tremendous achievement as a community in April at our Movie Night!!
The spring raffle starts 3/14/17 and the last day to turn in paper tickets is on 4/12/17. Winners will be announced at the Singing In the Rain Sing-a-long Movie Night on April 15th. Be sure to check out this year’s new offering of being able to sell raffle tickets online and accept credit card payments for raffle ticket sales.
On April 15th we will have our 1st Annual Lafayette Sing-a-Long Movie Night at the Balboa Theater. It begins at 6:30 and we will be showing Singing In the Rain! We are excited for this community event that will tie in the excitement from the school play and be one of our major PTA fundraisers with the inclusion of the Spring Raffle and Community Experiences. We hope to see you out there in support of our Lafayette students and community.
We’re looking forward to another great Multicultural Week at Lafayette this year (Jan. 30-Feb. 3). We need volunteers to help with the potluck in the evening on Thursday and in the classrooms for Around the World at Lafayette on Friday morning.
We are half-way through the school year and have reached 393 PTA members! Great job Lafayette…..It is not too late to make a splash and join the PTA. As a big thank you to those classes with the highest number of PTA members per grade, the PTA will host a bagel breakfast later this spring (date TBD).
