Don’t Let Your Senior Miss This….Thursday, April 15 (Cohort A/AC) and Friday, April 16 (Cohort B/BC) from 7:30-8:30am Senior Breakfast
This is one of our long-standing traditions and our first Seniors-only event. This year, the event will be held over two days based on student cohorts. ALL Seniors are welcome to attend, whether they are a hybrid or remote student. We will serve breakfast burritos (from Rancho Cantina), coffee cake (it’s a tradition!), and juice, all on the football field. Seniors are encouraged to wear Hawaiian-themed clothes or their Senior t-shirt. Get ready for music, raffles, and more! Masks required.

Senior Panoramic Picture: Order by Friday, April 16
We are combining the Senior Panoramic Picture with our Senior Breakfasts on April 15th & 16th. Students are encouraged to wear Hawaiian themed clothes or their Senior T-shirt for the photo. You can order your student’s class panoramic picture here through April 16. The cost is $22.

Monday, April 19 from 6-8pm – Student/Parent Self Defense Class at AHS
We are thrilled to offer this important 2-hour class to our students (plus 1 parent), and encourage our Seniors to sign up for this training before we send them off into the world. Class size is limited to 20 students (plus parents), the cost is $80 per person due the night of the class. Our trainer, Ramona Hernandez, has been a certified personal trainer for over 10 years, and holds a Senior I.S.S.A. (International Sports Sciences Association) certification. Hernandez is also certified in Rape Aggression Defense (RAD), TRX Military, and Group Boxing and Band Fitness. Sign ups are first come, first served via this Sign-Up Genius.

Homecoming Week, Sunday, April 25 through Friday, April 30
We kick things off with hallway decorating on Sunday, April 25 (the theme is Decades and our Seniors have the 80’s!)  We would LOVE Senior student support and due to COVID we have to limit numbers. Please ask your Senior to get involved by signing up here ASAP! WE ARE OUT TO WIN IT THIS YEAR!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE! Senior Slideshow Photos Needed!
One of our many traditions around graduation is the Senior Slideshow. It is a collection of photos of our Seniors and their friends from kindergarten days through Senior year. It is a way to commemorate the friendships our kids have made throughout their time here in the Lafayette school system. We would GREATLY appreciate any photos you can upload to the linked folder here OR send directly to our Leadership Student, Bella Gladden, the slideshow organizer. Please take the time to look through old albums, social media posts and anywhere else you might have these timeless photos.
