Welcome to Lafayette Elementary School. We are focused on individual success for all students. We put individual student learning experiences at the heart of what we do every day. Students learn differently and our curriculum with our programs allows us to reach all students from Preschool through 5th grade. Spend some time looking through all the programs we offer, it's part of what makes our school so great.

Some of these programs include: Cougar Choir with concerts, Talent Show or Musical performance, Basketball club, Jump Rope Club, Climbing Wall, Instrumental Music, Grade Level Learning Fairs, Spelling Bee, Robotics Club, Chess Club, National Geographic Bee, Drama Club, Shakespeare Plays, Student Council, T.E.A.M.S (Technology and Engineering to Enhance Science and Math), GAMES (Girls at the Museum Exploring Science), fifth grade Outdoor Education at Cal-Wood, Cougar Pride Awards, No Place for Hate, and Green Team.
Lafayette Elementary is a Green Star School which means we partner with Eco-Cycle to promote Zero Waste through increased recycling, the implementation of composting, and special waste reduction activities. Our Garden to Table program provide students with the knowledge and skills that lead them to make healthy and environmentally sustainable lifestyles choices. We do this by offering a hands-on model that brings teachers, parents, students, and communities together through growing food, learning about nutrition, and preparing and eating fresh meals. Lafayette Elementary promotes good nutrition, physical fitness and healthy life styles for all students. We are grateful to all members of our caring community for supporting such an exceptional school.
