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.



PRINCIPAL'S CORNER

Mr. Richard A. Klus
Dear Parents,

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!

The Fifth 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 your cooperation.

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 building.

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!

In Christís 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.
