Students do you find yourselves hungry in the morning and lunch is still hours away?  Well feel hungry no longer, you will be able to buy fresh homemade brownies each morning in the upper commons during the transition from 1st to 2nd block. The cost will be only $1.00 for a fresh homemade brownie, so starting today just look for the cart with the bright yellow sign and remember to help LHS by keeping the halls clean and placing all trash in the trash bins.

Congratulations to the “Egg Drop” team of Alejandro Gonzalez, Liam Hurley and Marcos Piggott.  They competed on behalf of Lafayette at the 4th Annual Newport News Shipbuilding Egg Drop Competition and earned first place by their performance in fabricating, testing and presenting the results of their “egg protection vehicle.”  This was a Tidewater/Peninsula area competition and this was our first time competing.
