The 25th annual Lafayette Art, Wine & Musical Festival was a great success! Thank you to everyone who showed up in support of our local businesses and a very special thank you to all the volunteers. LPIE continues to be the largest beneficiary of this amazing event, and we are very grateful to the Lafayette Chamber of Commerce for supporting our local schools. Also, huge congratulations to Rookie Volunteer of the year and LPIE’s Diamond Business Partner, Paddy Kehoe, for once again stepping up to support our schools and local community.

Welcome Back to LPIE!

Summer may be over, but the fun is just beginning! Join your friends – and make some new ones – on the patio at Metro this Friday, Aug 12 from 6-7pm when LPIE will be hosting a free event for all Lafayette parents and the community. Let’s raise a glass to celebrate the 2022-23 school year! Hope to see you there!
 
LPIE’s mission is to support and enrich the education of every child in the Lafayette public schools. “Every child” is the key part of our message because your donations to LPIE are distributed across the schools on a per pupil basis – no matter what school your child attends, they receive the same high quality programs, access to technology, books, elective classes at Stanley, AP and elective classes at Acalanes, and classroom supplies as every other student.
 
Please join us in supporting EVERY CHILD in the Lafayette public schools by donating – at whatever amount fits your family’s budget – to LPIE today at lpie.org. Every dollar counts. Thank you!
