PRINCIPAL'S CORNER

Mr. Richard A. Klus
Dear Parents,

Last week, students who are failing/have failed subject(s) received 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.  Summer school will take place for students in grades 1-8 at Seton High School.  The cost is $75; financial aid is available.  It runs from 8 am to 12:30 pm, Monday through Friday, from June 15 to July 17.  Fliers with details came home with your child last Thursday.  For more information, please contact the Main Office.  Summer School registration forms are due in the Main Office by May 15.

Students in Grades 4-5 traveled to Cincinnati Parks Board’s Avon Woods for an interactive experience in nature, conservation, and suburban wildlife.  As always, our students were well-behaved and had a super time.  Thanks to all of our teachers, parents and students for maintaining our high standards for behavior.

Be sure to check the new Time Capsule display on the first floor of the Main Building (near 4th and 5th Grades).  This is a revamped display of the items that were put in the cornerstone of the school building in 1904.  It was opened in 2004.  When it was resealed, the school put items from 2004 into it.  In 2104, it will be opened and looked at again.  Wow.  What history.

May Crowning was last evening in Church with our Second Grade processing in and our Eighth Grade working together to crown our Blessed Mother.  Rachel Hicks performed the crowning rite, and all of our students enjoyed our annual Frozen Treat Social afterward, between the church and school.  Thanks to all who helped celebrate May, our Blessed Mother’s month of honor.

Next Friday, May 15, is FIELD DAY.  Students will be travelling from St. Lawrence to Elder’s “The Pit” football field for all sorts of games, competitions, and activities. 

Please do not drive into either Carson parking lot from 7:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.  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 building.

Beginning next year, students will be dismissed from the Sturm parking lot ONLY.  The only students who will be allowed to exit from the Carson Avenue side of the building will be Preschool students, and those who take the bus.  All parents/rides/carpools are expected to use the Sturm parking lot.  This will free up congestion and dangerous situations on the Carson Avenue side.  There is ample parking in the Sturm parking lot, and a smooth traffic pattern.

Sign up for EZText Texting Service by texting EZHUG90045 to 313131.  This will keep you in the loop concerning latest information from me.  The service is free and only I can generate messages.  Thanks!

Come by and see the field construction.  This will be an artificial turf field, so our Physical Education classes can play outside, and will provide a safe place for our daily recess times.  What a gem to have here on Carson Avenue!

In Christ’s Peace,

Mr. Rich Klus, Principal
 



  • 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.
