Dear Lancer Families,

We are excited about the progress we are making at La Follette High School:
  • Our cell phone policy of "off and away" is helping our students to put people first, focus on collaboration with classmates, and engage in more time learning in the classroom.
  • With our focus on close reading, we are teaching specific strategies that support students to engage in meaningful conversations around texts, so that all students contribute great ideas to deep conversations.
  • We are all committed to working with students to earn credit and strive for a 3.0+ GPA, specifically providing intensive supports for students who are not yet meeting their full potential, and teaching all of our Lancers to believe in themselves as learners and never give up. 
  • We are focused on supporting our African American students to learn and grow, and working with students individually and in groups to empower them to learn and remove barriers to learning.

The Diary of Anne Frank

Save the date for La Follette's fall production of  The Diary of Anne Frank, newly adapted by Wendy Kesselman.   Based on the endearing book Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl,  The Diary of Anne Frank  is the heartbreaking dramatization of Anne's diary brought to life on stage.  The story captures a brief moment in time while Anne and her family, along with several other who hide in the secret annex apartment of a New Amsterdam house and the friends who help them during the Nazi occupation.  The play captures the enduring spirit of a young girl growing into a woman while cut off from the world. 

The Diary of Anne Frank is directed by Matt Starika.
