Community Updates 4/5

Dear Lafayette Families –

We are four short days from Spring Break!  Below are a few community reminders:

Happy Assistant Principal’s Week!!  Our school is what it is because of our three amazing Assistant Principals – Stephanie Mayhew, Madison Bosurgi, and Kenneth Brown!  Ms. Mayhew is our queen of logistics and has been at Lafayette for 8 years!  She is the heart and soul of our admin team.  Ms. Bosurgi is in year 5 as an assistant principal and makes sure our athletics, year book, student clubs, and all things lunch and recess are in order!  She works closely with our KDG and 1st grade teams to and is our jack of all trades. You’re likely to find her supporting our classrooms and our students in any number of ways!  And finally, Dr. Brown is in his second year as our assistant principal over special education.  We cannot thank him enough for his advocacy and work for our students with special needs, his consistency and thoroughness, and the many hours he spends working with families in IEP meetings.   Please take a moment to drop them all a note to say “Thank you” this week!  Email links are below:

Dogs at Drop off – No Thank You 🙂

It’s a sign that we are moving back toward normal when I have to remind us all that dogs are not permitted at drop off and pick up.  Please leave your very cute and furry friends at home.  Thanks for your support in this for all of our students with allergies and fears.

 

Be a Good Neighbor – don’t litter on your walk to/from school.

I’ve received some feedback from the neighbors about trash being left in yards on the way to/from school.   They’ve also shared that cars are idling at the curb while waiting.  Now that it’s warmer (and gas prices are higher) hopefully this won’t be such a problem!  Thanks for your support in being a good neighbor!

 

Enrollment time is NOW for next year

Thanks to the 108 families who have already re-enrolled.  Only 780 students left to go!!!!  We need you to gather up your paystub, or driver’s license, car registration, or 2 utility bills and
