What Does the Auction Support?
The Lafayette Home & School Association (HSA) provides upwards of $300,000 annually (nearly $400 per student) to support our school community and programs including both grade-specific informances, extra curricular programs, classroom supplies, science programs, and more. We help fund our school’s one-of-a-kind Peace Program which focuses on social and emotional learning and makes our school a kinder, more inclusive place. Importantly, we also help cover many building and school supplies costs so that Dr. B can focus her budget on teachers.
