Your contribution to the Bear Fund supports instructional programs and enhances the Lafayette
experience for our students and community.
If you are feeling thankful for all that our wonderful teachers and administration are doing,
please know that your support helps to make our school even stronger. When the community
comes together to raise money for programs and supplies through the Bear Fund, it allows
Lafayette’s administration to focus its resources on ensuring we have a talented pool of
teachers, aides, and specialists to welcome students back to the rigors and rewards of in-person
learning. Lafayette also has an equity pledge – 10% of funds raised through the Bear Fund
support DCPS schools in greatest need through the DC Education Fund.
With your help, the Bear Fund will continue to allow Lafayette to be proactive in responding to
this pandemic, enhance student learning, and help us foster the sense of community we all
missed last year. But we can’t do it without you! Please join us and make your gift today.
