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 stands on three pillars: Advocate, Communicate, Celebrate. We support our teachers and staff, we help communicate important information to our families, we advocate for our schools on a national, state and local level and we build our community by sponsoring programs such as Westival Fall Festival and Book Fair, International Variety Night,  Breakfast and Books, Walk-a-Thon, Earth Week, 4th & 5th Grade School Play, and much more.
LPIE ensure our kid's education and enrichment needs are met and provides funds for staff development, information programs, library books, our PE specialist, classroom and school supplies and mathematics and writing intervention specialists.
We encourage you to donate the student one ask amount to LPIE to complete this mission and support the PTA by purchasing a membership/directory, participating at our events and volunteering where it makes sense for your time and abilities. 
Our PTA is completely run by volunteers, giving their time, money and expertise in order to further support 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 LPIE and the PTA!
