St. Lawrence Elementary School
The deadline to submit your EdChoice renewal is April 30.
By that time, you must submit your completed school re-registration
form, EdChoice renewal form, proof of residence, and the proper
fees. The proper proof of residence is a current utility bill in
your name. If you do not pay utilities, you may submit your lease
and first class mail. Without a lease, you must submit a notarized
statement from your landlord, his utility bill and first class mail
in your name. If you do not renew your EdChoice scholarship on
time, you will be required to enroll your child in another school
next year or pay the tuition of $5,100 per child. Please submit
your forms today.
Mr. Richard A. Klus
Registration for current students is underway. To
date, we are still waiting on re-registration forms for a
number of students. Our deadline is April 30. It is
critical that we receive your forms by this date, or the
full tuition balance will be put on your account and your
EdChoice Scholarship will expire. If you are
paying registration fees with cash, please hand deliver the
papers and fees to the Main Office, so Mrs. Dudley can write
you a receipt.
Congratulations to the Second Grade
and their 24 First Communicants! The ceremony was lovely
and the students were well-prepared. Mrs. Moehring and Mrs.
Vehr did a fantastic job getting our students ready to
receive this very important sacrament. Thanks also to Mrs.
Aufermann, Mrs. Shore, Mrs. Wolf, Ms. Schoening, and Mrs.
Aquino for coming and helping at the Mass. Thanks also to
everyone who prayed for our little ones!
Grade had a marvelous time at Camp Campbell Gard last week.
The weather was beautiful and our students were extremely
well behaved. There were two other schools there from the
Tri-State area whose students looked to ours for a positive
example of respect, politeness and cooperation. What we do
here at St. Lawrence is truly the work of our Lord and our
children all benefit from our high expectations and parental
support. Thanks to each staff member at St. Lawrence for
being such wonderful role models.
Come this week and
hear our Eaglesí Wings Choir perform their Spring Show on
Thursday (tonight) and Friday (tomorrow) nights at 7:30
p.m. Pre-sale tickets are $3 and $5 at the door. Seating
is limited, so please order your tickets in advance.
This week, students who are failing/have failed
subject(s) will receive letters indicating such. Please
note that if summer school is REQUIRED, a student MUST
complete summer school to return to St. Lawrence. For
students who are required to attend summer school, teachers
and I have identified significant skill deficits that would
make transition to the next grade extremely difficult
without intensive help. If summer school is RECOMMENDED,
please make every effort to take advantage of the program to
ready your child as it is very important to enhance or
maintain skill in order to be successful the next year.
The Important Dates section of the
Newsletter contains valuable information for you; please
refer to it weekly as it changes often.
Please do not pull into the Pre-K Parking Lot by the
modular. Since leaving requires you to back out,
it can create an extremely dangerous situation. Thanks for
Please do not drive into
either Carson parking lot from 7:00 AM -- 3:00 PM.
Once again, we have had a near miss when one driver was
backing out and our smallest students were coming to
breakfast. It is still dark enough, and they are short
enough that a tragic accident almost occurred. The life of
a child is more important than the few extra steps from
Carson Ave. or the Church lot to the cafeteria or school

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
