Pictures for Yearbook Consideration

If you have any photos you'd like to submit for consideration in this year's LAF yearbook, please email them to: by Friday, March 31.

Photos should be school related, taken on LAF property, on the first day of school, or at LAF events like Mini Marathon, Halloween Parade, School Concerts, etc.

To make things easier for the volunteers sorting through photos and creating the yearbook, please rename the photos you attach to your email using the following format: Grade_Homeroom_Event.jpeg.

So for example: 4_Hadley_1stDay.jpeg OR 5_Jackameit_MiniMarathon.jpeg

Including similar information in the subject of your email will also be helpful.

This will really help us organize submissions and best place the photos throughout the book, so thank you in advance for taking the time to submit this way.

Finally, we will make every effort to represent as many students as possible in this year's yearbook. Depending on the number of photos received, we may not be able to include all of them, and we thank you for your understanding.

Earth Day Greenraiser

Welcome to Lafayette's Greenraiser! Did you notice a Tree Machine donation box by the gym doors? The LAF Environmental Club would love to have your donations! Clothes, shoes, accessories, and linens will be accepted. For every full bin, a tree will be planted in Africa through Trees for the Future. All of the textiles will be reused, repurposed, or resold in Central America. The bin will also serve as a fundraiser (donations are weighed weekly) for the Environmental Club which will be purchasing trees and plants for the school. Time to clean out those closets! Thanks for your support.

5th - 6th Grade Health Information

As you may already know NJ State requires 2 immunizations for 6th Grade. One is the Tdap booster and the 2nd is the meningitis vaccine. The Tdap vaccine is required upon entrance into 6th grade while the meningitis vaccine is required at age 11. If your student has received these vaccines already please feel free to send in the paperwork to me at LAF so you will be ready for the start of school in September. If you prefer to fax the updated immunization record the fax number here is (973)457-2493. As always please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.

Warm Regards,

Sally Kelly RN, CSN
