Mid-Summer Check in and School Supply Lists!

Dear Lafayette Families – 

Happy July 15th!  I hope this note finds you moving at a slower pace, enjoying the sun and your family.  I want to take the opportunity to welcome all of the new families who will be joining us this year.  Welcome to the Lafayette community!

We are 6 weeks away from the first day of school, and only 2 1/2 weeks away from class lists being posted!  If you are ready to start thinking about Back to School shopping (or just want to capitalize on Amazon Prime Days), I’ve attached the school supply lists below.  I’ve also included a few reminders for the summer.


Save the date for the following summer events:

  • August 2nd – Class Lists published (via email)
  • August 22nd – Back To School Huddles, time by last name
  • August 24th – New Family Popsicle Social, 4:30 – 6:00 pm
  • August 26th – 1st Day of School for KDG – 5th grade, (PK4 please see transition week schedule).


Back To School Huddles – Thursday, 8/22

6:00 pm ­ (Last Name A – F)
6:45 pm (­Last Name G – N)
7:30 pm (Last Name O – Z)

Please join us for these optional gatherings on Thursday evening.  We will meet in the cafeteria at the assigned times.  After a quick introductory presentation, the building will be open for tours (even though classrooms will not be open).  Families are also welcome to bring their school supplies on that evening to drop off outside their teacher’s classroom.

Summer Reading 

There’s still time to finish off those books, edit your reports, and explore more of the summer reading list.  The complete list can be found here.  

PreK Transition Week

For all of our PreK families, be sure you have your daycare lined up for the week of 8/26.  The first week for PreK students in a transition week.  Our tiniest Bears don’t start their full week of school until September 3rd.  Click here for the full PreK4 Transition Week Schedule.


Please enjoy the last 6 weeks of summer.  We are so looking forward to seeing everyone in August!
