Homecoming preparations aren’t the only events Student Council (STUCO) has planned for this week. In addition to organizing daily dress ups, putting up hall decorations, selling tickets for the dance and much more they have a special fundraiser to add to Lafayette’s Homecoming Week.

Student Council (STUCO) sponsor David Choate plays MMMBop by Hanson through a speaker in between passing periods as a fundraiser to raise $1000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Center to “stop the bop”.

From Monday to Friday, all day long, the song MMMBop by Hanson will be playing throughout the halls of Lafayette. Before first period, when students are doing their regular morning activities such as walking around with friends, getting help from teachers, etc. as well as during passing periods and at lunch, MMMBop will be ringing throughout the halls. But… there is a way to “stop the bop.”

In order to help the St. Jude Children’s Research Center, our students can make a donation. STUCO will be collecting these donations at lunch, but the money can also be turned in to any grade level office during passing periods all through this week. By donating to St. Jude’s, students will have made an honorary contribution to the cancer research that the hospital has been conducting. As soon as $1,000 is collected, the bop will be stopped.
