Renaissance Staff Person of the Month - May
Please join the Renaissance Student Steering Committee in congratulating...

Lauren Sakowski

as the staff person of the month for May.

According to Laura Champion, "She has been very encouraging of my art. Mrs. Sakowski pushes me out of my comfort zone and is flexible in letting me try new things. In addition, she decided to take on reading through my first draft of a novel I have been working on, giving me feedback and inspiration as I write despite being an art teacher and in no way being compensated or required to do so. I look forward to school because of her."

Way to go, Lauren. Going above and beyond? That's what she does.

This Saturday, we will welcome our Lancers to Lafayette's Prom 2017 being held at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel, 100 Carondelet Plaza, St. Louis, MO 63105.  Rain is predicted for Saturday, so The Ritz's free covered parking will be perfect for a dry arrival.  Interstate Studios will be on-hand with their fun photo booth so your student can capture this moment with his/her friends!

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for check-in (please remind your student to bring his/her ticket and photo ID), and dinner will be served at 7:00 p.m.  We want to remind parents and students that students may NOT enter Prom after 8:30 p.m.  At 9:00 p.m., we will conduct The Coronation, crowning our Prom King and Queen, and our last dance will take place at 10:30 p.m.

The generosity of the Lafayette students, staff, and community continues to amaze me. Last Friday we raised $2,005.56 during our 2nd annual Cookies for a Cause fundraiser. What a way to honor the legacy of Lawrence Strawbridge and celebrate what would have been his 17th birthday.

Thank you to everyone who promoted and participated in our fundraiser. It was truly an outstanding day and the great character of Lafayette High School shined bright. It is our honor to donate this money to the Lawrence Strawbridge Foundation​ and support the many great things they are doing for kids. 

Thanks again for your help and support!!

-Matt Landwehr and the Cookie Stand Staff​
