Hello Leopard Families,


Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!  Lafayette Elementary is a wonderful community of families and I am happy to welcome the many new and returning families to another fun filled, educational school year.  I have found LES to be a caring, supportive community since my daughter's Kindergarten year, and have experienced more kind people as the years have gone by. Volunteering has helped me connect to new families and make new friends, and I hope this could be the same for you.  I am so excited to work alongside this fantastic group of parents and teachers this year on the PTA Board as President.  


Our PTA provides school events, such as Westival and International Night to bring joy, excitement and community building.  We also pay for field trips and education speakers to come and present exciting topics.  Parents are also provided with Parent Education nights to navigate topics, prior ones being, diversity, screen time and wellness.  We are able to provide all of these events and school resource when you join.  Your PTA membership and fundraisers pay for these and many more school events, learning opportunities, supply library books, classroom enhancements, and our Leopard Garden.  We need you all to help make this school year a success and retain what makes Lafayette Elementary a special school.  


Our parents are dedicated to our children, along with being very busy.  So how can you participate when life is so hectic?  When possible attend a PTA meeting which are held on mornings and evenings to help accommodate schedules.  We want everyone represented and connected, if you have ideas or thoughts, please come to a meeting or connect through an email.  If you can help volunteer for events, library, decorate a door for Teacher Appreciation Week we would love it and I think you would love it as well! 



Again, I am looking forward to this school year with everyone.  I hope to see you around school, maybe at the welcome back coffee, and hopefully volunteering along side you this year!
