Bear Fund Week Success & Raffle Winners

Lafayette, THANK YOU for turning out big for Bear Fund Week! You joined hundreds of other families to help sustain the programs and support what makes Lafayette such a special school. Because of your generosity, we have raised $140,000 for the Bear Fund!

Together, we’ve made incredible progress toward our goal over these last couple months of the campaign.  We are just $15k away from our year end goal, so for those who didn’t have a chance to give last week or who can secure a company match, it isn’t too late to donate!

Everyone who donated between July 1 and before the end of the day Dec 1 received a raffle entry. And the winners are:

  • Kara Williams-Kief = Washington Capital Tickets
  • Mayonn Paasewe-Valchev = Spring Auction Tickets
  • Laura Finn = $100 in Grizzly Gear

In the participation race, PreK came in 1st with an astounding 97% participation rate! Way to go! First grade came in 2nd place and second grade came in very close behind at 3rd place. Thanks to everyone who pitched in to help their grade!

Many thanks to the following parent volunteers who supported – and continue to support – this year’s Bear Fund in all ways, great and small! Mike Alderfer, Valerie Cline, Eleanor Correa, Alexis DeBernardis, Gabe DiClerico, Gigi Elizee, Bess Fox, Jennie Hendrickson, Katherine Holloway, Jess Jones, Amy Kurz, Heather Leins, Jessica Lettween, Henry Lynch, Linda Lynch, Nicole Majestic, Beth O’Brien, Kevin Sheives, Mark Schofield, Vanessa Scott, Lise Tishman, Maggie Walser, and all the Room Parents and Tuesday Bulletin coordinators!
