Welcome to the official site of the Lafayette Elementary School’s PTA. This is where you can JOIN the PTA, find out how to PARTICIPATE in our events and DONATE to our Leopard Fund.
It’s never too late to join our PTA. Your $15 membership fee allows you a vote at our PTA meetings and presence in Sacramento and DC when our lawmakers take into account the voice (ROAR!) of the PTA as a whole unit that advocates for our children. It also gets you access to our online school directory app, AtoZ. Both California and National PTA have arranged for merchant discount and additional benefits you can see here:
Our PTA puts on lots of events throughout the year, giving you many opportunities to participate in fundraisers and FUNraisers (usually one and the same) as an attendee or a volunteer. The chairs of all of our events are listed on this site so you can reach out to help. We also use the Leopard Spots enewsletter and Room Parent emails to get help whenever we need it. Volunteering is a work of heart!
The amount per student asked for the Leopard Fund is $200. Our aim is 100% participation by the families at our school. The Leopard Fund pays for many LES specific needs such as classroom supplies, our Library Assistant and PE, Writing Intervention and other specialists, Green Initiatives and Gardens throughout our campus. It also funds our annual school play, Westival, International Night, Green Eggs and Ham Breakfast, educational opportunities for parents and much more. You can donate by contacting our PTA Treasurer and you can leverage your donation as many employers offer matching programs.
