How many times has this happened to you? You turn on your radio or iPod, listen to a song and for the rest of the day, it remains stuck in your head.

In America, it seems we have a pretty reliable and traditional school system. We have (unless it’s a holiday) five full school days, lasting from roughly 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. After each week, we get about a two day weekend to catch up from homework, go out with friends, have a mini-vacation, or just enjoy some free-time.
Of course, we don’t have the only education system. There are many, many others that could be better and worse for different reasons.
For example, in Asia, they receive their education much differently than Americans do. People in Asia spend roughly eight hours a day at school – as opposed to the seven hours Americans spend at school.

Generally, students in Asia seem to enjoy school more and seem to be more interested in classes because of these changes. Read the rest of this entry »
As many juniors hopefully know, the dreaded ACT is right around the corner.
For those of you who don’t know, the ACT is a big deal for all high school students, especially those who are college bound. The ACT is a timed, standardized test and used most often by colleges to determine whether or not applicants will gain admission.
Lafayette High School recently hosted a Talent Night and Arts Night to raise money for Haiti. Both of these events were fundraisers for the Haiti Challenge – which is sponsored through the Global Aid Club and Off the Mat Into the World.
The events were hosted by Lafayette faculty members Mary Kay Sliney and Don Young.
