THANK YOU to the entire Lafayette community for a terrific Bear Fund Week! In just one week, we raised over $51,000 for a total of $137,824 for the programs that make our school so special. While we are still short of our $160,000 goal, donations are still rolling in from company matches, grandparents, and even neighbors of Lafayette! The collective power of this community to come together and support our school is undeniable.
Bear Fund is always open for donations, so if you haven’t made your gift yet, or donated but want to give a little more, please help the HSA meet its fundraising needs by donating today.
Congrats to our raffle winners and to 1st grade for an incredible participation rate of 72%, thereby winning the ice cream party!
