BETA Club is an organization committed to helping our community in different ways. They regularly do community service projects and work together to think of better ways to serve our community.

Fuller. Their email is [email protected] if you are interested in joining.
The Lafayette Times
The Lafayette Times is our school newspaper. They are more of a class than a club. To join the team, you must take the Journalism 1 class. That is where they write all their stories and do their editing. They will write just about anything: mostly school-related, of course. You can write about sports games, club events, and even album reviews. So if you like writing in any way, they will probably have something for you. Mark Journalism 1 on your scheduling sheet or switch to the class next semester. They are always looking for new writers and photographers. Mrs. McPherson is the sponsor of The Times. Her email is [email protected] if you are interested in joining.
Student Council has several ways to get involved. They have multiple committees: DanceBlue, Homecoming, Teacher Appreciation, Spirit, and Philanthropy. Student Council is a great way to participate in school events and contribute to decision-making during the school year. This is a great club for people who want to get involved with planning school events or just spreading love and kindness throughout the school. They have plenty of things to do and ways to participate so definitely consider Student Council. One of the club sponsors is Ms. Schwab. Her email is [email protected] if you are interested in joining.
Y Club or Student Y is a government-focused club that debates and discusses world issues. They have two events, one in the fall and one in the spring, called Kentucky Youth Assembly (KYA) and Kentucky United Nations Assembly (KUNA). KYA is a 3-day trip in which students from around Kentucky serve as part of a model state government. KUNA is a 3-day learning conference in which students from around Kentucky participate in a simulation of international diplomacy and discuss global issues. This Student Y is great for people who enjoy debating and are interested in politics. The club is sponsored by Mrs. McPherson. Her email is [email protected] if you are interested in joining.
