The Lafayette Jazz Band Dance and Silent Auction, “Vox Populi,” is on February 17, 2017 at Wellington Elementary.  This is a fun event for students and families to dress-up and dance to the music of the two Jazz Bands.

Donations for Silent Auction items are now being accepted.  Please contact Liz Booth (liz@mysland.com) if your business is able to donate a gift certificate, product, or service to the silent auction.  All crafty parents are invited to create and donate an item for the auction.

All families will be asked to bring food items to share with all – watch for an email from a parent volunteer for specific food items for each section.  For example, members of the Jazz bands are asked to bring a 2-liter soda/juice or water bottles.

Family Payment Agreements

 

PLEASE NOTE: Family payments form the basis of the annual budget.  Our instructors and staff rely on us for their earned pay.  However, we are unable to provide payment to these individuals due to many families who have not completed the agreement. 

Family payments for 2016-2017 are $1,100 and were due in August – or an additional late payment of $150 for the “deferred payment schedule” was added per the payment agreement. All payments should have been completed by November 15, 2016.

For those who have not paid, or are behind in their payments, please be responsible – others are relying on you.  If you have questions or concerns, please contact Mr. Smith at chuck.smith@fayette.kyschools.us or 859-396-3311 for a confidential payment arrangement.
