Hello Leopard Families,


Welcome to the 2023-24 school year!  Lafayette Elementary is a wonderful community of families and we are happy to welcome the many new and returning families to another fun filled, educational school year full of all of your beloved school events.


We have found LES to be a caring, supportive community. Volunteering here has helped us connect to new families and make new friends, and we hope this can be the same for you. We are so excited to work alongside this fantastic group of parents and teachers this year on the PTA Board as Co-Presidents.  


Our PTA provides school events such as Westival and the Spring Family Social that bring joy, excitement and community building. Our focus will continue to be on community building events for all families. We try to provide educational speakers to come and present exciting topics to caregivers. 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, teacher appreciation, and our Leopard Garden. We need you all to help make this school year a success and retain what makes Lafayette Elementary such 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? Attend a PTA meeting, which are held on mornings and evenings to help accommodate schedules. We want everyone represented and connected, and 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 think you would love it as well! 



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