Principal's Message

Let me begin by extending an invitation to our school. We welcome and encourage parent involvement here at Lafayette Elementary through the classroom and our Parent Teacher Organization.

Our school is committed to providing each student with an education in which essential information and skills are learned, knowledge is explored, and ideas are critically analyzed and evaluated. LES has an excellent educational program taught by talented and dedicated faculty members. Our goal is each day to “fill our students’ buckets” with knowledge, skills, and the joy of learning.

Your child’s elementary school years are a special time in his or her life. It is my personal goal to serve and provide a nurturing environment for all our students. I appreciate and am humbled by the task, as well as very grateful to have the opportunity. My door is always open and I encourage, as well as appreciate, any communication from each of you.
