JOIN PTA!

 Any parent or guardian of a child enrolled at Lafayette Elementary School is eligible for membership. You gain access to our PTA school calendar and online student directory with the option to print at home or download the app to your mobile device. As a member of the PTA, you can vote on the PTA budget and PTA-related issues.

 

Having an account to this website is not the same thing as joining LES PTA. You must become a member to gain access to online/app directory and additional parenting resources. *Must be logged in to access form.

IF I JOIN, DO I HAVE TO?

  • Go to meetings? 
    No. You are welcome to attend our general meetings though. 

  • Volunteer or spend a lot of time at school? 
    Nope! Joining the PTA is not the same as volunteering. If you choose to volunteer we would LOVE the help—but volunteering is not required.

PTA History

Chartered in 1920, the Lafayette Elementary School Parent Teacher Association is the oldest PTA in the Las Trampas Creek Council. Our PTA has a strong history of providing activities and events that enrich the growing and learning experience for each and every child enrolled at Lafayette School.
 
Our PTA proudly funds or organizes the following enrichment programs: Westival Fall Festival and Book Fair, International Week and Potluck, Green Eggs & Ham Breakfast and Read-a-Thon, Walk-a-Thon, Earth Week, Red Ribbon Week and Character Counts Awareness, 4th & 5th Grade School Play, and the Green Schoolyard Team. Your generous donations to LPIE and our PTA also help fund staff development, information literature programs, library books, our PE specialist, classroom and school supplies and mathematics and writing intervention specialists.
 
Our PTA is completely run by volunteers, giving their time, money and expertise in order to further support the educational goals set by our School and District. These volunteer opportunities are both great and small, and we urge you to get involved, have fun, and support our kids by supporting the PTA!
