St. Lawrence Elementary School
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.
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.
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
SPRING BREAK begins Thursday, April 17 at
dismissal and school resumes on Monday, April 28 at regular
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.

Award Recipients 3rd Quarter
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
Friday, April 18 Grade 8
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.
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

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
