This is a fun and educational fundraiser. It is a great way for students to learn new words, while supporting our Lafayette community and preparing for the school wide Spelling Bee on January 17th. Spell-a-thon information packets will come home next week. They include a list of the spelling words your child will be learning, along with pledge forms. Please help your child collect pledges over the winter holiday and encourage them to learn their spelling words. The Spell-a-thon Test will take place the week of January 8-12th. Your child will learn to spell 20 words (Kindergarten) or 25 words (Grades 1-5), while your family and friends reward his/her effort with a tax-deductible donation to Lafayette Elementary PTA. Donations raised will be used to fund teacher stipends for Field Trips & Classroom Supplies.
We have raised $60,000 so far! We are about halfway towards reaching our goal of $125,000. Reaching our goal allows us to continue to support our children’s educational experience at Lafayette.
With the end of the calendar year only 8 weeks away, there is still time to make a contribution to the Annual Giving Campaign and have your donation count towards the 2017 tax year.
Join us for Dim Sum and two Chinese dance performances on Saturday, November 18th from 10AM-12 noon!
The Annual Giving Campaign Committee is sponsoring this new community event to bring our school community together while celebrating Chinese Culture.
If you are an employee at a medium to large sized company, it is very likely that your company has a matching gift program. See the full list of companies that are matching donations!
Come join us for a fun, timed 5k Run/Walk on September 17, 2017, and support a nationally-recognized San Francisco public elementary school! Our fast, flat course runs through Golden Gate Park down John F Kennedy Dr. and all proceeds benefit Lafayette Elementary School. Cheer on our students as they participate in a pledge run/walk-a-thon. This upcoming school year, we are specifically raising money to support our school’s high caliber of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) academic excellence by paying for our technology teacher, outdoor science teacher, and online technology programs.

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.
