St. Lawrence Elementary School
Mr. Richard A. Klus
Spring may have sprung. Yay! We should be finished with our
snow days. Since we are several hours below the minimum
required by the Archdiocese, we will need to have March 27
as a make-up day. So, we will have classes on March 27.
Please plan accordingly.
Congratulations to the
following students who earned CISE Scholarships
for their high school careers: Jayla Abney, Jacob Hickey and
Ocean Wu. These scholarships are worth $4000 per year for
four years! There are other students still in consideration
for additional scholarships; stay tuned for more names!
Please remember to support our
PTO FISH FRY on each Friday (including Good Friday)
in Lent from 5 PM to 7 PM. The PTO is a critical
organization to promote, foster, and support positive
relationships between our students, parents and teachers.
Your support is greatly needed. Please consider working a
shift, and encourage your friends to come!
DRAMA CLUB is busily preparing the Spring
Production of ďHolka Polka,Ē a rollicking
comedy about witches, fairies, and saving the Prince.
Director Becky Rogers has been tirelessly working with
students for several weeks. Please support our Drama Club by
attending this wonderful show, March 19 and 20 at 7 PM in
our Fr. Westerhoff Performance Hall. Please call Becky at
481-7819 for tickets or more information. St. Lawrence is
blessed to have this valuable extracurricular activity for
the benefit of our students. As a former music teacher,
drama director and lover of the Arts, I canít stress enough
how this program benefits students. Thanks for your support.
Registration for current students is underway. You
parents received this information previously. It is critical
that you provide all requested items at the same time. If
your registration is incomplete, it will be sent back to
you. This way, we can keep all papers together and save you
and ourselves time.
The Important Dates
section of the Newsletter contains valuable information for
you; please refer to it weekly as it changes.
have a change of address or a phone number change,
please let the Main Office know as soon as the change
occurs. This is especially critical in case of emergency.
Remember, a child must be fever free, vomit
free, and diarrhea free for 24 hours in order to
return to school. This prevents passing sicknesses from
student to student. This is especially true for children who
go home the previous day; they need to stay home the next
day to complete the 24 hour period. Students who come to
school the next morning will be sent home to prevent the
spread of sickness.
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 your
In Christís Peace,
Mr. Rich Klus, Principal
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
