Dear Parents & Families,

Back to School Huddles: Thursday, 8/22

Please join us for these optional gatherings.  We will meet in the cafeteria at the below assigned times.  After a quick introductory presentation, the building will be open for tours (even though classrooms will not be open).  Families are also welcome to bring their school supplies that evening to drop off outside their teacher’s classroom. As we have a large number of families, please attend only at your assigned time!

Kindergarten “Meet the Teacher”, Thursday @ 6:00 pm

Are you a parent of a rising Kindergarten student? The Kindergarten teachers will be hosting a meet the teacher in the cafeteria. This is an opportunity to bring your student and their giant bag of school supplies to say hi and introduce yourselves.  

New Family Popsicle Social: Saturday, 4:30-6:00 p.m.

New to Lafayette? Please bring your family and join us on the Lafayette playgrounds to meet other new families. This is a great opportunity for your child to enjoy an icy treat while meeting other students from their classroom and grade. Parents also can meet other parents & the Lafayette community.

Class Activity Fee

Lastly, don’t forget to pay your Class Activity Fee. Each year, we collect a one-time fee from each child in the classroom to pay for teacher-organized field trips to locations like Mt. Vernon, the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center, and the National Zoo. The fees also fund end-of-year parties and field-day shirts in each class.  Class activity fees are due by September 28th.
