JOIN PTA!

Any parent or guardian of a child enrolled at Lafayette Elementary School is eligible for membership. Your membership helps support our ongoing community-building and advocacy efforts, and gives you access to our 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 PTA-related issues.

 

Having an account on this website is not the same thing as joining the PTA. You must become a PTA member to gain access to online/app directory and additional parenting resources. Please log in first to access the form.

*Must be logged in to access form

 

IF I JOIN, DO I HAVE TO:

  • Go to meetings? 
    No. Attending general meetings is optional but encouraged.

  • 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 Night,  Breakfast and Books, Read-a-Thon, Walk-a-Thon, Earth Week, 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  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!
