Braving a northeast wind bringing 30-degree temperatures and snow flurries, three hearty La Follette School students – Patrick Landers, Chris Webb and Liz White – assisted with the City of Madison Parks Division’s clean-up effort at Tenney Park on Saturday, April 27. The La Follette School Student Association (LSSA) arranged this and seven other service opportunities during the 2017–18 academic year.

Individual tickets are now available for the La Follette School Student Association’s (LSSA) Trivia Night fundraiser Friday, March 1 at Brocach in downtown Madison. Proceeds will support New Student Visit Day and the Class of 2019's graduation.
