Back-to-School Checklist: Donate to the Bear Fund


Dear Lafayette Families,

Good afternoon! Our annual fundraising campaign kicked off last week and runs through the fall. We are off to a great start but still need your support. We encourage you to check one thing off your list this week and donate to The Bear Fund this week, before the school bell rings in the 2018-19 academic year.

The Bear Fund supports many of the programs that make our school so special like our grade-specific informances, the Peace Program, extracurricular activities and classroom supplies. With your support of the Bear Fund, the HSA is able to provide nearly $300,000 annually (almost $400 per student) to support our school community and programs .

To learn more about The Bear Fund or make a donation online, click here. (Prefer to donate by check? We have envelopes and an HSA dropbox in the school office.)

We’ll be available at both the Back to School huddles on Thursday, August 16 and New Families Popsicle Social on Saturday, August 18. We hope to see you there! If you have questions, please contact Lori Finch at .

Again, thank you in advance for your generous support of all our students.
