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.
La Follette School faculty, staff, and students tripled their 2016 Penny War giving over last year – collecting $607.33 for two student-selected charities. Finishing at -$107.82 ($204.96 collected), faculty and staff won the Penny War, which ran from October 18 until noon November 22.

Mother Nature saved some of the summer’s best weather for the La Follette School’s annual Hill Fest celebration. Atop Observatory Hill and under blue skies, more than 120 students, alumni, friends, faculty, and staff marked the start of the 2016–17 academic year with a picnic dinner and enthusiastic conversations.
