Want to be a Lafayette buddy for a student who has special needs?  The annual Exceptional Games will be held June 6th at Jamestown High School, and we need 25 students who are outgoing and have a heart to help these very special Lafayette students!  If interested please come to room 418, and get a permission slip from Mrs. Smith.

Summer is just around the corner! Who’s ready to trade in their school shoes for flip flops? How fortunate we are to have shoes to choose from. It is probably hard to believe, but not everyone in the world has a pair of shoes. Here’s where YOU can make a difference! By donating an old pair of shoes that you’ve outgrown or no longer like, you can help alleviate poverty. LHS will be collecting gently used shoes through the end of the school year.  The shoes will be donated to Soles4Souls, a non-profit organization that redistributes and recycles shoes to those in need. Donating is easy! Simply place your clean, gently used shoes in one of the boxes located outside of the Main Office, Library, Cafeteria, or Counseling Office. Give shoes, give love. Thanks for your generosity!
