PRINCIPAL'S CORNER

Mr. Richard A. Klus

Dear Parents and Students,                       

Nothing like going from cold and rainy to hot!  Fortunately, our weather is beginning to moderate and be more spring-like.  Our weather is reflective of the second reading this weekend: the old order of winter is indeed passing into the joy of new birth and growth. 

Our state testing is now past us and we look forward to some of the rites of Spring:  tonight we have the final PTO meeting of the year, and concert for PK-3rd grade students.  Please come out and support our music classes as they showcase their talents.  Thanks again to Mrs. Hahn, who has done a wonderful job in teaching our children the joys and comfort of music.

Speaking of PTO, I would like to welcome our new PTO President, Mrs. Cathy Lageman!  Mrs. Lageman has three children here at St. Lawrence and a little one at home.  As a graduate of St. Lawrence, she will continue the dedication and generous support that our PTO provides us.  Mrs. Lageman replaces Mrs. Janet “Pickles” Phillips, who very capably served as President for several years.  Mrs. Phillips has been a tireless advocate for the children and staff of our fine school, and while she is retiring from PTO, she will still be present as one of our cafeteria workers.  I will miss working with her as President, but she can “sling hash” with the best of them in the cafeteria!  I am excited to work with the PTO Board, comprised of Mrs. Lageman, Ms. Feldman, Mrs. Haverbusch, Ms. Heuitt, Mrs. Aufermann, Mrs. Pitmann, Mrs. Long, Mrs. Showalter, XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX.

Next week, our Eagles’ Wings Choir will be performing Thursday and Friday

As of this writing, there are still 47 students not re-enrolled for next school year.  It is critical for our planning purposes that you re-enroll; it also ensures that your child(ren) have a spot in next year’s class.

OPEN ENROLLMENT continues here at St. Lawrence for Grades PK-5.  We are an EdChoice Scholarship School, and have spaces in Grades PK-5.  Don’t wait until the last minute to enroll or re-enroll, as our spots are beginning to fill up.  Spread the word that we are an excellent choice for a quality Catholic education!  To register or re-enroll, please visit the Main Office between 9 am and 1:30 p.m. or call 921-4996.

We are having an increasing number of phone numbers, etc. that are not working or have changed.  Please let the office know if your information has changed.  We need to be able to contact you if there is an emergency for your child or an emergency at school.  Also, please sign up for the EZText service by sending EZHUG90045 to 313131.  Even if you have run out of minutes, this service will send a text message to you.

Speaking of procedures, please do NOT enter the Church Lot via the Sturm Street gate.  Enter only from Warsaw Avenue and exit through the gate.  This is for the safety of the children.  Thanks for your cooperation.

I will continue directing parents and students to dismiss to the Sturm side of the campus (the parking lot by Church).  I realize this is inconvenient, but it ensures safety for all of our students, parents and staff.

 Please continue to pray for the members of our community who need it.  Even a quick prayer at dinner or in the car is heard by our gracious and loving God.

 Christ’s Peace,    Mr. Klus

 



  • 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.  There is no pickup permitted on Carson St.

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  - 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.  Many medications are regulated by Ohio state law and we must comply with these laws.  Thank you.  Click here for a Medication Permission Form.

  • 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.
