Lafayette High School had good things to report to the school board last week.

The high school reported the addition of new classes, strong attendance and new clubs. Lafayette also  has announced some plans to celebrate its 50th year in operation.

Jeremy Stinson, director of assessment and K-5 curriculum, said the highlight of the meeting was Lafayette High School Principal Glen Kitchen’s report.

After the first nine weeks tests were given, Kitchens said attendance and grades were looking good for Lafayette High School students.

The school is offering a variety of Advanced Placement classes for gifted students, including economics and American history. The high school also is giving students the opportunity to take several dual enrollment classes.

Several new student clubs have been added to Lafayette’s roster such as Frisbee golf, VIP art club, gamers club, yoga club and others.

Kitchens said the school is also excited about the 50th anniversary this year. He said that many alumni, teachers and students are a part of the celebration, which is currently being planned.
