If you thought you saw more students with hats than usual in the building today, you were right.

Student Council members raised money for the Make-a-Wish Foundation this week by taking donations in exchange for the privilege to violate the dress code for a day. When students paid at least $1 to a Student Council member, they got a wrist band. Wearing that band on Friday (today) allowed them to wear a hat during the school day without consequences. LHS’s dress code policy currently states that hats are not to be visible at any time during the entire school day.

“We raised $95 through about 90 donors, students and staff,” Student Council Sponsor  Denise Craig said. “All the money goes to Make-A-Wish.”

“I like being able to express myself with the clothes I wear” senior Phenix Killen said Friday.

Killen donated $2 for the cause. “I like that I don’t have to take off who I am when I walk in the doors. It makes me feel better when I wear a hat – expressing that I’m a basketball or football fan. It’s also good conversation starter.”

Since the drive was so successful, there’s a good chance StuCo will do it again, so start saving your pennies.

“At this point, we plan to do this again, probably in January,” Craig said.
