Get Ready for Bear Fund Week!

November 28 through December 2

Our goal is to increase participation across all of our Lafayette families. Donations of all sizes are welcome and appreciated! 


Why Give? 

Support Our Children

The HSA will contribute over $300,000, or approximately $410 per student, to augment the budget provided by DCPS and elevate the Lafayette experience for our community of students, educators, and families. But we can’t do it without your help.

Maximize Teacher Impact

Technology upgrades and science enhancements, quality art supplies and music instruction, student scholarships, classroom supplies, and teacher support ensure all Lafayette students are nurtured to success.

Enhance Learning through Enrichment Programs

Lafayette HSA’s budget augments the library collection and technology licenses and supports enrichment programs, including Peace, Music, and HoopEd for an educational experience that benefits the whole student.

The Bear Fund enhances learning for our students. We must reach our goal each year if we want to continue to support the programs that make Lafayette such a special school for our students and allow us the flexibility to respond when needs arise.
