Help Support Lafayette

The Bear Fund is an opportunity to support the numerous programs that the Lafayette HSA supports through the school year including the Peace program, recess coach, science night and so much more (See the HSA’s budget here.)  The HSA provides almost $400 of support per student each year and helps address some school costs so that Dr. B can focus the bulk of her budget on teachers and student learning. Please join us in supporting the HSA and the programs that make our community so special.

 This year our goals are two-fold:
(1) Raise $150,000 for the HSA’s Program
(2) 100% participation of families across all giving levels

If you give online, you can choose to donate in a single transaction or donate in 10 monthly installments over the course of the school year.
