St. Lawrence Elementary School
Mr. Richard A. Klus
Dear Parents & Students,
This week marked
several wonderful events here at St. Lawrence. On Monday,
our Families got together for the first time, which was a
good experience for our older students to lead and for our
younger students to become closer to each other. Special
thanks to Mrs. McLaughlin, Mrs. Tyler and Ms. Sneddon for
facilitating this event, and for all staff and all students
for their engagement and cooperation.
Grade took the Ohio Achievement Assessments this week. This
is the last time they will take the Assessments, as the Ohio
Department of Education is moving to the PARCC Assessments
in the spring. When ODE lets me know its path, I will let
you know what is in store.
Thanks to Mr. and Mrs.
Long and Mr. and Mrs. Hickey for taking the lead on the
Halloween Happening Festival; this will take place on
October 25 in the Parish Center. This fun filled evening is
family friendly, and is low cost. It is a fundraiser for
the Eighth Grade, so they can have some fun activities in
the spring. Mark your calendars.
As cooler weather
approaches, please remember that we have no supervision for
students who are not eating breakfast; they will have to
stand outside in the cold. So, if your child(ren) donít eat
breakfast, please try to drop them off as close to 7:45 as
Our Buddy Card sales are off to a good
start. Please consider purchasing one for the low cost of
$10. We do not encourage students to sell door to door, so
spread the word amongst family, friends, and co-workers.
The monies raised will benefit our third floor Art Room.
Sales end on October 22. Refer to the flier for the neat
prizes that your children can earn for selling cards.
Finally, remember that the 1st Quarter ends on October
22. This week is the time to work and get those grades
where you want them and expect them. If you have any
questions, please contact your childís teacher(s).
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
