Homecoming week 2018 at Lafayette was a fun display of school pride and creativity. Each day of the week is assigned a different theme, allowing students to dress up and make school a little more interesting than usual. The days were as follows: Meme Monday, Character Tuesday, Wildlife Wednesday, and Throwback Thursday. Friday was left off this list for a reason, as the senior class and the Lafayette Administration had conflicting ideas of what Friday’s theme should have been.

Students from all grade levels show their school pride on class color day.

The seniors sided with tradition, vowing to wear red on Friday as a symbol of their seniority.  The administration wanted a change, however, promoting “Blue and Gold Day” as a day dedicated to school spirit instead of class spirit. Many seniors advocated for a meeting with the administration in an attempt to officially change Friday’s theme to class color day, but only members of the RAM Pride Board were allowed. A source from the RAM Pride Board who wishes to remain anonymous told The Ledger, “The administration will most likely not take action against students who participate in class color day, but they also cannot endorse any theme other than Blue and Gold Day.”

When Friday came, it was clear what theme the students had chosen. As the seniors went into Lafayette for the senior run, a swarm of red filled the hallways. The seniors of Lafayette High School chose to wear red even when faced with disciplinary threats, defying the changes envisioned by the administration.
