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.
The Annual Give Committee is doing another push to drive additional donations for the school year. This will help to secure some of the important programs the PTA funds including but not limited to Teacher stipends for field trips, Technology program, Art in Action/Art in Residence Programs, School Play, Field Day, Autumn Carnival and Outdoor Science Education.
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).
