A THOUSAND THANK YOUS!

The 2022-2023 school year is not even two months old and we have already hosted a long list of events, programs, family nights, fall festivals, and information sessions. None of these would be possible without the tireless dedication of our teachers, staff, and administrators. Above, teachers and elected officials are pictured with Superintendent Tahiliani at the Lafayette Fall Fest and EL Family Night. Thanks to everyone who has helped us enjoy a sensational start to the school year.
