SBDM ELECTION – PLEASE CONSIDER VOTING!

DOWNLOAD BIO

To: All Lafayette High School parents and parents of incoming freshmen:

The Lafayette High School PTSA will hold elections for parent members to the LHS Sight-Based Decision Making (SBDM) School Council on April 16th and 17th, 2015 from 7:00 AM to 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM in the LHS main hallway next to the administration office entrance.

To my knowledge, there is one candidate running for SBDM who is also a member of LBA – Mr. Kevin Holm-Hudson. Please review his bio and learn more about the extraordinary expertise he has to offer the SBDM. If there are other candidates who are LBA members, please send your bio to potterjb5@gmail.com and it will be distributed to all band families along with other candidate information as it is made available on the school web site.

Please take a few minutes out of your busy day to vote!  This is to choose the person who will represent the parent voice for the 2015-16 school year.
