Lafayette Schools are Powered by LPIE
April 17, 2018
Ask residents why they selected Lafayette as their home and many will say “the schools.” Lafayette’s public elementary and secondary schools consistently receive high rankings. While parent and community participation is one key to the success of our top quality education system, we attribute much of the success to Lafayette’s tried-and-true education foundation, Lafayette Partners in Education (LPIE).
While LPIE’s upcoming annual fundraising event is sold out – all 468 tickets sold within three hours! – anyone can participate by purchasing raffle tickets or bidding in the online auction: https://lpiederby2018.ggo.bid/bidding/package-browse. You’ll find luxury getaways, tickets to sporting events, dinners, and much more.
For 37 years, LPIE has successfully fulfilled its mission to support and enrich the education of every child in the Lafayette public schools by providing supplemental resources for engaging curriculums that spark young imaginations and ignite dreams. By filling the gap between parent club support and parcel taxes, LPIE helps to fund a number of art, music, and science programs that are key to a well-rounded education. LPIE also provides funds for instructional aides and counselors.
While my own children are now grown, my husband Todd and I continue our sponsorship of LPIE as we know that great towns are often distinguished by great schools. I hope you’ll join us by ardently supporting this precious community resource.
