During Open House, senior class president Blake Klosterman gives a speech. The new LPAC group will be replacing class executive boards. This year, the senior executive board will remain, but they will be the last executive board group.

The Lafayette Principal’s Advisory Committee, or LPAC, has emerged as a new direct student-administration group. This committee acts as a student body of 12 (three from each grade) that will aid in decisions concerning students, celebrations and accomplishments. This will be replacing class officers and in its place, the new system will provide a more systematic way for student voices to be heard. This year, the senior executive board will remain, but they will be the last executive board group.

According to Principal Karen Calcaterra, a student doesn’t need to be in LPAC, be a part of a club, an organization, a committee or any other of the groups to provide ideas for the school or community.

“We encourage our kids to share information and share ideas anytime. If you have a great idea, and you want to share information with us, or you have something that you think would just be a real benefit to our school and school community, come and tell us [principles]. Any kid can tell us those things anytime,” Calcaterra said.

In addition, Calcaterra mentioned that there are many organizations students can join for providing school/community ideas, including Student Council, Key Club and NHS.

For more information on registering and expectations, students can go to their grade level office and pick up an information sheet or talk to a grade level principal. Applications are due Sept. 15 at 4 p.m. and can be submitted via the provided link or QR code on the information sheet.

The first LPAC meeting is scheduled for Oct. 2, during Mod 1 of AcLab, with subsequent meetings to be held monthly. Specific locations for these meetings will be announced in due course.

  • Monday, October 2 – Mod 1
  • Wednesday, November 1 – Mod 1
  • Monday, December 4 – Mod 1
  • Thursday, January 4 – Mod 1
  • Monday, February 5 – Mod 1
  • Monday, March 4 – Mod 1
  • Wednesday, April 3 – Mod 1
  • Wednesday, May 1 – Mod 1

“This is a great opportunity for us to get more kids involved and to hear their voices and I’m looking forward to learning about all the new leaders that maybe I didn’t know that we had here. What a great way to learn more about kids and leadership,” Calcaterra said.
