PRINCIPAL'S CORNER

Mr. Richard A. Klus
Dear Parents and Students,

It would certainly seem that SPRING has finally arrived at St. Lawrence!  We are learning and praying the Stations of the Cross, the Spring Concert is tonight, Easter, Easter Break and First Eucharist and the Talent Show are right around the corner.  I love these days because the air is fresh, the heart becomes lighter and we can all celebrate the majesty of rebirth in our hearts and in the beauty of nature.

We celebrate as a community TWO BIRTHS: Mrs. Vehr gave birth to a baby boy, Eric, recently, and Mrs. Tyler gave birth to a baby girl, Anna, this past week.  Moms and babies are doing just fine.  Life is good.  God is good! 

At this time, our RE-REGISTRATION PERIOD for EdChoice Scholarship students has closed.  If you have not re-registered, we assume that you will not be returning to St. Lawrence School for the 2014-2015 school year.  Phone calls and reminders were sent to every household that wasnít registered.

This evening is our annual SPRING CONCERT, which is a showcase of the talents of our Pre-K through 4th Grade Students.  Thanks to the tireless work of Ms. Lillian Dudley, our music teacher, these students are sure to entertain one and all.

Please pray for our 5th Grade students who are attending CAMP CAMPBELL GARD until Friday, April 11.  This is a wonderful opportunity for them to come together as a class, learn about history, and experience nature in its glory.

SPRING BREAK begins Thursday, April 17 at dismissal and school resumes on Monday, April 28 at regular time.

Remember that when a student is TARDY, there is a significant amount of instructional time that is lost.  Please ensure that you bring your children to school prior to 8:00 a.m.  In the event they are late, please escort them to the office for a tardy slip.  For reasons of safety, we require that all students be accompanied by a parent when tardy.  Thanks for your support and cooperation.

Please call the Main Office if you are planning to have your child DISMISSED EARLY.  This helps us all know where our students are and where they will be.

Christís Peace,

Mr. Rich Klus, Principal

The Fish Fry As in previous years, we are asking the students of St. Lawrence to provide the desserts to sell at the Fish Fry.  Homemade cookies, brownies, cakes and cupcakes are always popular.  Students who bring in desserts on their assigned day receive an out-of-uniform pass to use the following Wednesday.  Desserts may be sent to school with your child or you may drop them off in the cafeteria.  The success of last yearís Fish Fry provided the PTO the opportunity to purchase a sweatshirt for each of our students.  Thank you for supporting the Fish Fry!

FISH FRY DESSERT SCHEDULE
     Friday, April 11    Grade 5
     Friday, April 18    Grade 8


  • Arrival Times:  School starts promptly at 8:00 am but we ask that all students try to be here before so that they are ready to start learning as soon as the bell rings.  There is no adult supervision for any students arriving in the schoolyard before 7:45 am.  The cafeteria opens at 7:15 am ONLY for those students eating breakfast at school.

  • Dismissal Time:  Students are dismissed at 2:45 pm.  Please make arrangements to meet/pick-up your children by entering the parking lot off Warsaw Avenue and then exiting the lot through the Sturm Street gate.  We feel this is the safest route for all students being picked up by parents as there will be several yellow buses and after school care vans picking up other students along Carson Avenue.

REMINDERS FROM THE OFFICE:

  • If your child is absent from school, you are required to call the school office (921-4996) before 8:30 am.  If there is no answer, press extension 35 and leave a message.  You must call the office each day the child is not in school.  Reason for absence notes should be sent to school on the first day your child returns to school.  If requested, homework will be available in the school office after school and may be sent home with a sibling.

  • MEDICATION POLICY EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY - ALL MEDICATIONS for students must be brought to the school office by an adult to be checked in.  No medicine may be brought to school by a student with the exception of inhalers and epi-pens.  No medicine may be brought on the school bus or kept in a book bag.  This change is for the safety of all St. Lawrence students.  Also, many medications are regulated by Ohio state law and we must comply with these laws.  Thank you.

  • If you are picking your child up early for an appointment, please send a note with your child in the morning.  It is important that we know when and by whom your child is being picked up.  You must come to the school office to meet your child and sign him/her out.  Please try to make all appointments after school hours. 

  • All transportation arrangements must be made with your child before coming to school.  If transportation changes must be made for your student please call the office and we will get a message to them by the end of the day.  Students will not be permitted to call home after school.

  • EdChoice Acceptance Forms are due in the office as soon as possible, please.
