Speak Mindfully, Act Mindfully, Move Mindfully.



A history of dedicated and active parent volunteering has helped earn Lafayette its place as one of the best elementary schools in Washington. Whether you have just one hour, one day a month or the enthusiasm to do much more, volunteering is the best way to learn about Lafayette, meet other parents, have fun and make an investment in your child’s education. When children see their role models committing time to Lafayette, they’re reminded that their school is a very special place.
