Dear Families,

Happy Multicultural Week!  All week long we are celebrating Lafayette's wonderfully diverse students, families and community.  Yesterday students from kindergarten to fifth grade participated in this year's multicultural assemblies.  It was truly amazing to watch our students perform dances, recite poems and sing songs that highlight cultures from around the world!  Special thanks to all the classroom teachers that helped prepare their students for the event.  A very special thanks to Ms. Delanda, Mr. Krista, Ms. Rebecca, and Ms. Berger for their hard work in organizing, choreographing and rehearsing the performances so that our Lafayette students shine. Thank you! Thank you!  

Students will have an encore performance tomorrow evening at Multicultural Night.  Come on out to see our students perform and then stay for the international potluck afterwards.  Festivities begin at 6 PM in the Sandi Berger Auditorium.

Tomorrow between 8:15 and 9:30 Lafayette holds our Passport Around the World activity for grades K-3.  Students will be visiting classes to learn about different countries and cultures.  Students will be participating in activities, making crafts and sampling food from around the world.  Each student gets a passport book that will be stamped showing the countries that they have visited.  We will need parent participation during this activity.  Please contact you child's teacher to make arrangements and find out how you can help out.  

Remember that tomorrow is Spring Picture Day.  These are for individual pictures only. Also, all SFUSD schools are on holiday this Friday in observance of Lunar New Year, and this Monday in observance of President's Day.  We will return to school on Tuesday, February 20.  Have a safe and relaxing long weekend.

Sincerely,

Heath Caceres and Jake Hodgson

Dear Lafayette Families,

We did not have an e-envelope last week since last week we sent home our once a month paper envelope for all families.  I have included all the attachments from last week here so that you have them for reference.  These attachments are also located on the Lafayette school loop website under the tab Our School.  A direct link is located here Lafayette School Loop

Next week is Multicultural Week.  It is also Jump Rope for Heart on Wednesday and Picture Day on Thursday.  It will be a very busy week indeed here at Lafayette.  

On Tuesday we have two daytime performance assemblies highlighting classroom dance, song, and spoken word to celebrate multicultural month.  The K-2 assembly is at 8:45 am and the 3-5 assembly is at 10:20 am.  Each should last about 30-40 minutes.  This is a small preview of what will happen during multicultural night, but this will be the only performance for some of the classes.  Parents are welcome. 

On Wednesday we hold our annual Jump Rope for Heart fundraising event.  Grade levels will take turn jumping rope and doing other physical activity all to raise money for the American Heart Association.  Please send your child to school with appropriate shoes and clothing.  Students will be involved in an extended physical education session.

On Thursday the K-3 classes will participate in Passport Around the World.  Each class will highlight a separate country. Students will pass from class to class to learn about different cultures and history.  Teachers may need help during this activity.  The PTA is also involved.  If you would like to help out in your child's class please contact your homeroom teacher for more information.

On Thursday we also have Spring Picture Day and in the evening we have our Multicultural Night beginning at 6 PM in the Sandi Berger Auditorium.  Hoping to see you here at Lafayette as we celebrate our wonderfully diverse history and culture during Multicultural Week.

Sincerely,

Heath Caceres and Jake Hodgson
