Vike Link September 2016
From the Office of the Principal
Parents and students,
Welcome Back!! I want to thank all the parents who attended the class orientations in August. Your presence speaks volumes of your commitment to STL and your son’s education. I hope the meetings were informative.
We had over 300 parents, students and family members at the Freshmen Orientation, Mass and BBQ. Special thanks to the Fathers’ Club who did a great job with the BBQ.
Thanks to all the parents who attended Back to School Night and the Freshmen, Junior and Transfer student meetings. The gym and LRC were packed.
As I mention in every Vike-Link, GET INVOLVED in your son’s education. GET INVOLVED with the Mothers’ and Fathers’ Clubs. GET INVOLVED in school sponsored events. Be a presence at STL. Students whose parents are involved do much better in school academically, spiritually and emotionally.
Make sure your son is GETTING INVOLVED. The four years of high school go by quickly. Do not let him be a 7:57-2:33 student. STL has so much to offer him outside the school day. Make sure he is a well-rounded student who GETS INVOLVED!
Grandparents day is September 16. Please contact the office by September 9 to RSVP.
Homecoming Week 2016 is September 26-30 The homecoming dance is October 1. We need parents to pour pop and fill snack bowls at the dance. Let me know if you are available. GET INVOLVED!
We started our Team of Teams program with Robot Wars the week of August 29. Ask your son what he thinks about the week.
Vike-Hike is coming on October 5. Information will be sent home. Please make sure you get involved in this school event. This year we will be walking on the track with various team of teams activities going on. For further information, contact Mr. Shaw at ext. 232.
Check the school calendar for upcoming events in September. If you have not been receiving our school messenger, please contact Mrs. Hynes and let her know.
St. Laurence, Pray for us. Blessed Edmund, Pray for us. Live Jesus in our heart, forever.
