2019-2020 School Supplies; PTA positions and more!!!

Lafayette PTA is ordering all STUDENT school supplies again for the 2019-2020 school year and sharing the cost with you!   The cost per student will be roughly the same as last year ~$40.  We are arranging the orders with Teachers now and the final price may end up being slightly different.   You’ll be able to pay on-line or send in a check.   There will be no school supply lists posted as we are pre-ordering all office supplies.  Please provide your own student back-pack, coat, lunch box (if needed) and water-bottle.

We have PTA Board positions available for 2019-2020 including:

  • Legislative Chair, Co-Event Chair, Communications Co-Chair,  D.E.I co-chair, Fundraising chair, Enrichment co-chair, and make-up-your-own job chair.

Please consider donating some of your time to our Lafayette Community!   We have so many hardworking volunteers, let’s share the work-load!  Come join the PTA Board!

Lafayette Elementary Celebrates 100 Years by Collecting 100 Socks and 100 Shoes for Kids

To recognize the one-hundredth year of Lafayette Elementary the student council is organizing a fundraiser and community outreach to collect new and lightly used socks and shoes for kids in need. We also accept money as a donation and all proceeds will be donated to Westside Baby and Youthcare for youth in need.

“The Lafayette Student Council wants to give back to our community for its support for the last 100 years and thought helping kids was the best way to do it. Our goal is to collect at least 100 pairs of new (and lightly used) kid sized shoes and socks (per grade level) so no kid has to go without” — Lafayette Student Council Members

You can drop off your donations between 7:30 am and 6:00 pm M-F January 14, 2019 to May 31, 2019 at Lafayette Elementary.

Lafayette Elementary is located in West Seattle at 2645 California Ave SW.
