In addition, the LPO sponsors three major fundraisers throughout the year:

  • Freshman class - Carnival
  • Sophomore class - Trivia Night
  • Junior class - Taste of West County

Funds raised from each of these events stay with the class that runs it and are used to finance that class' senior year activities, including Memory Maker Events and Senior Celebration, an alcohol and drug-free all-night celebration following graduation.  See below for a brief description of each event and go to your child's class web  page for related news and activities (as it becomes available).   We encourage you to join the fun and make the most of your child's high school years as an involved Lafayette parent.

In addition to information about class activities, you will also find key forms, meeting minutes, treasury and contact information on these LPO webpages.  LPO meetings are held monthly.  If you have any questions about any event, please contact one of the LPO board members listed below.

You can download and print the contact list for the LPO Board Members and Committee here.
