Vike Link September 2015
From the Office of the Principal,
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 250 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.
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 an 8:00-2:33 student. STL has so much to offer him outside the school day. Make sure he is a well-rounded student who GETS INVOLVED!
“Back to School Night” is Wednesday, September 2, 2015 beginning at 7:15 PM in the gym. At 6:30, there will be a meeting for all freshmen and transfer students and parents. Back to School night will follow. This is another opportunity to GET INVOLVED in your son’s education. This is the opportunity to get to meet your son’s teachers and go through his class schedule. Your son will be giving you a copy of his schedule on the 4th for you to follow. If you have any questions, contact STL.
Father-Son Communion Breakfast: The Father-Son Communion Breakfast is Sunday, September 27 at 9:30 AM at STL. The cost is $10 a person. Mass is at 9:30. Breakfast is at 10:30. Father, grandfather, brother, uncle or male guardian and son are welcome. What better way to be with your son and meet his friends than at a mass followed by an awesome breakfast. GET INVOLVED! If you have questions, call me at ext 212.
Homecoming week 2015 is September 14-19. The homecoming dance is September 19. 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 on Wednesday, August 26. Ask your son what he thinks about the program.
Vike-Hike is coming on October 7. 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 reach messages, please contact Mrs. Hynes and let her know.

Finally, I would like to thank the STL community for the cards, letters, emails and attendance at my Dad’s wake and funeral. It was incredible. STL is truly a family.
St. Laurence, pray for us. Blessed Edmund, pray for us. Live Jesus in our hearts, forever.
Mr. James C. Muting
