    On behalf of Sophomore Advisory, we would like to invite you and your students to support our "Gifts for Glennon" Toy Drive this holiday season.   Collection boxes have been placed throughout the school building. We would love any new, unwrapped toy that you or your students are willing to donate to this worthy cause.  The Toy Drive will run now through January 13, 2020, so please consider picking up an item or two during your holiday shopping trips.  If you would rather donate online, please feel free to use this link - - to make a tax-deductible donation directly to Cardinal Glennon.

    We are proud of the sophomores for initiating this collection for a worthy cause.  We also ask that you keep that “holiday spirit” ready for the sign ups/donations COMING SOON (after Winter Break) for the Sophomore Class Rock-n-Roll Bingo event!  If you’re out shopping and buying gift cards, buy a few more and hang onto them for donating for our Bingo prizes or if you receive gift cards you know you won’t use, please consider passing them along to us!  We’ll use them!

    Bingo planning meetings are underway and it’s not too late to join in the fun!  Next meeting is Tuesday, Dec. 10, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. in Room 180.

    Best of luck to our Sophomores on FINALS and everyone have a wonderful Winter Break!

    Anita Shawke and Julie Dobson, Class Directors

    WELCOME TO SOPHOMORE YEAR, CLASS OF 2022!  We would like to welcome all of our returning families and anyone new to Lafayette.  If you're new to the school/district, you have definitely landed in the right place!  Lafayette Senior High School was ranked the #1 High School in Missouri last year by US News and World Reports. We are also a Nationally recognized School of Character among many other accolades.  Hopefully all of your children are finding their niche and settling into the school year with confidence and enthusiasm.  If they are still seeking activities to get involved in, have them check out this Activities link for a wide variety of clubs and school organizations and the sponsor to contact.

    Getting involved is so important and there are so many choices at Lafayette.  Encourage your child to pay attention to the electronic message boards in the Commons for information regarding meeting dates and times.  The new flex schedule may also allow students to participate in certain clubs and organizations that they couldn't previously if they had before or after school conflicts.

    Parents can get involved, too!  The Sophomore Class will need help leading up to Homecoming (Saturday, October 12th)….watch for requests for volunteers or supplies needed.  We are also looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help in planning Rock and Roll Bingo which is our grade level fundraising event for the year (Saturday, March 7).  We are thrilled to announce that we already have our Co-Chairs for the event.  BIG thanks to Vanessa Fitts and Pam Matusiak for stepping up to lead in the fun!  If you have a spare hour here and there or don't want a consistent volunteer position, working in Lancer's Landing, the school store, would be a perfect place for you to sign up.  (Click the link below) Choose the date(s) and times that work for you.  It's a fun way to meet other parents, staff and see the kids "in their element"!
