2018 Renaissance Departmental Student of the Quarter: 3rd Quarter

2018 Renaissance Departmental Student of the Quarter:  3rd Quarter

 

Sponsored by Penn Station

 

Throughout the school year each department at LHS will be asked to give an extra special recognition to one student who has stood out above the rest.  For the “third quarter” of the school year students will receive “Free subs for a quarter” from Penn Station for their achievements.  Each department was allowed to use their own criteria to choose their student.

 

If you see these students please congratulate them on this special award.

 

Special School District:  Leah Reeves

 

Leah has made tremendous social and emotional progress since the beginning of last year.  Overall, Leah has shown a lot of growth this year.  Leah has demonstrated consistent  perseverance toward her academic and SEB goals not only this past quarter, but over the past school year as well.  Her attitude has continued to grow more positive and her ability to bring out strengths in some of her peers has been observed by several staff members as well. She has shown generosity and thoughtfulness toward several staff members which reflect her growth in building rapport and trust. She is a great nomination and definitely deserves it.

 

Sophomore Class:  Stella Chang

 

Stella Chang is a quiet young lady who is hard working, diligent, respectful, caring and concerned. She is focused on her education and learning. Stella deserves to be the sophomore student of the quarter because she represents the spirit of a true Lancer.  

 

Math Department: Michael Lang

 

Michael is in my geometry class and has been stellar since day one. He gets great grades, is kind to his peers, and asks the best questions!  He always wants to know the "why", and typically tries to find the exception to the rule. He's a great kid!  

 

World Languages:  Jessica Lopez

 

She is an all-around great kid. She is always very pleasant, very hard-working and timely in turning in assignments. She is very responsible, especially when she knows she is going to be out of town, to get her work and actually follows through in doing it and turning it in! She has worked very hard to improve her signing since last year. Not only is Jessica a great student, but she is active in French Club and is the President of Environmental Club.

Celebrating Our Students!

2017 Renaissance Departmental Student of the Quarter: “2nd Quarter” 

Sponsored by Penn Station

Throughout the school year each department at LHS will be asked to give an extra special recognition to one student who has stood out above the rest.  Each department was allowed to use their own criteria to choose their student.


If you see these students please congratulate them on this special award.


FACS:  Margarita Hoffman

 Rita is a huge asset to the FACS Department.  She is currently a Cadet for Fashion Construction 1, where she assists students on a daily basis and helps with departmental tasks.  She even comes in during her study hall to help out when she has time.  Rita has a wealth of sewing knowledge and works well with her peers.

 

Junior Class:  Kelli Rinkenberger

 Kelli is new to Lafayette this year and has jumped into the school taking multiple challenging classes at the AP/WG level, as well as participating in Cross Country and Choir.  She has worked very hard to experience success in each of these areas and has paved the way for a bright future

 

PE: Jill Wipke

 Jill Wipke is PE student of the quarter because she is taking two PE classes and exemplary in every way:  always prepared, enthusiastic, helpful to staff, and most importantly Jill is very kind to others.  Instead of Jill using her athleticism and talent to dominate others she encourages others and makes teammates feel valuable regardless of skill of level.  She is a wonderful role model for students and staff alike!

 

Language Arts:  Noah Chapin

 Noah is a brilliant and witty writer. His strong and vast vocabulary make his writing both insightful and entertaining. Teachers appreciate his work ethic, kindness, and general good-natured attitude.​​

Lafayette Halloween Spirit!

Hello Lafayette!  Today was an exciting day full of school spirit and excitement.  Our Culinary Arts class worked on carving pumpkins.  Our students are very creative and were quite focused on their designs.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

​In addition, our very own LHS staff participates in an annual costume constest sponsored by our Renaissance program.  I hope you enjoy their clever costumes.  Our students LOVE seeing their teachers contribute to our school spirit.  Lafayette truly is an amazing place to be!​
