Holiday Toy Drive Is On!
LES is collecting toys this holiday season for Oakluv Foundation. Started in 2009 by current LES dad, Alex Cox, the organization takes no administration fees, so all donations go directly into the community. LES is proud to highlight this amazing local organization while helping spread holiday joy to deserving kiddos in the East Bay!
Feel the spirit of giving and bring an unwrapped toy to school to donate now through December 15th. Collection bins will be in front of the office to drop toys in during school hours.
LES PTA Nominating Committee
We are looking for volunteers to join the Lafayette Elementary PTA Nominating Committee to help fill our 2024-2025 PTA Board positions. The committee, made up of 5 PTA members plus 2 alternates, will meet starting in January. There will be one main meeting and then a shared google doc so people can contribute when they are available. To volunteer, please contact Briannon McCurdy, PTA Parliamentarian, at email@example.com.
In addition, do you have interest in learning more about PTA Executive Board positions, roles, and opportunities? Briannon or other current board members can assist with that as well! Click here for more LES PTA information.Don't be shy, and reach on out! And thank you for your help!
