The Auction (live + silent) is a major fundraising event at Lafayette. Historically held in the Spring, it is a wonderful way for the parents/guardians to build community while supporting our students. Hundreds of items are procured and donated from families and local businesses to help raise funds. Students participate by creating class art projects for Raise the Paddle.
