The first day of school at Lausanne is one of the most exciting days on campus. From the moment lower school parents arrive to drop their students off and meet their teachers until the day ends, there is an energy on campus. Events for the day include the senior breakfast, senior drive through, opening pep rally and the ringing of the bell to signify the beginning of the school year. First-year students and teachers are also welcomed to campus by tapping the seal as their new classmates cheer them on.
It is always fun when the Lausanne community comes together to celebrate Homecoming. Homecoming is held in the fall for football and in the spring for basketball. The day always includes a pep rally, where students from K-12 gather in the gym to get themselves ready for the evening's homecoming game(s). During the Spring, the Lausanne Homecoming Court is presented and a Homecoming Queen and King are named.
As part of the Writer’s Guild, Lausanne Lower School students, family members and friends gather in EPAC for a presentation and book signing by a national artist. Lower school students read the guests book in class while expressing their own creativity through writing, editing, illustrating and publishing hardback books. The Writer’s Guild was a great opportunity for our little Lynx to share their work with loved ones. It is followed by a reception in Blackmon Gallery. Guests wrap up the day outdoors, finding spots across campus to sit and listen as the students read their novels.
Once a year, students and faculty make their way down to the lake for an annual middle school tradition. As part of the house cup competition, each of the four respective houses assembles a team for the annual house canoe race. Chosen members board their canoes and race the other house teams across the lake and back while the rest of middle school cheers them on.
