The Cougar Connection
Lafayette Elementary February 5th, 2024
Dear Lafayette Elementary Community,
We hope you enjoyed a snowy weekend! Megan volunteered at Centaurus on Saturday, helping keep score at their basketball games, and then Sunday relaxed with friends and watched the Grammys. She also had a great time reminding her dog it is ok to go potty when it’s snowing. Robin had a fun weekend hosting sleepovers, cheering on hockey teams and making a delicious broccoli and cheese soup.
It’s the last week for our annual read-a-thon--What’s Cooking? Thanks to our PTO for coming up with an amazing event and fundraiser to get kids reading. Please enjoy our video! LINK
Parent Teacher conferences sign-ups will be sent to the emails parents have listed on Infinite Campus on Friday. The invitations will come through a Help at Schools email link. We are so excited to connect with families this month and are hoping for 100% of parents to have an opportunity to meet with teachers and counseling staff. If you do not see a time available that works for your family, please reach out to your child’s teacher individually- we will make it work!
CT came out of the cave to kick off kindness month! Our kindergarten will be leading random acts of kindness all month.
Megan Weir, Principal and Robin Stone, Dean of Students
