Happy Holidays Freshman Parents!
Here are a few important class updates before we reach Winter Break and the end of your child’s first semester of high school in a few short weeks.
Thank you for your help with the “Together We Can” canned food drive. Lafayette collected 17,500 cans to donate to the Circle of Concern.
Our next planning meeting is Tuesday, December 18th, 7:00 p.m. in Room 137. Please attend!
Please consider donating like-new small toys, individually wrapped candy and LIKE NEW stuffed animals. Drop off prizes at the freshman office. Silent auction donations and sponsorships are welcome, too.
You will be receiving a Carnival e-mail with links to specific donations needed and volunteer shifts on Carnival Day. In order for this fundraiser to be successful, we’ll need your help and the help of your students.
