Vike-Link February 2015

From the Office of the Principal,

Parents,

If you have not been receiving school reach calls for school closings, late starts and other announcements, you need to contact Mrs. Hynes and let her know. If you changed phone numbers or would like a phone added, please let her know.

There is a spring athletic meeting for all students participating in spring sports on Tuesday February 17 at 7:00. All students and a parent who will be involved in baseball, lacrosse, track, and volleyball should be at this meeting. If you have any questions, contact Mr. Chandler.

The Excel Edge ACT Prep classes will begin at 4:00 PM on Tuesday, February 10 and run through April. All juniors were sent information. If you still want to register, contact Mr. Muting ASAP.

The Fathers’ Club Super Bowl party was a huge success despite the poor weather. I want to thank the Dads that worked the event and those of you who came to watch the game through a snowstorm. I want to thank the parents who have participated in parent club sponsored events this year from bingo to raffles.

STL will hold the IHSA regional championship on Saturday, February 7. The Fathers’ Club will be working the concession stand. If you are able to help out, contact the Fathers’ Club.

I am looking for a DJ to volunteer 2 hours for a Valentine dance for the Garden Center in Burbank. The Center located at Austin and State Road will be sponsoring a dance for their clients. The Center houses adults with special needs. If you know someone contact Mr. Muting. The Dance is February 12.

The Chicago Catholic League will be holding their CCL playoffs at STL on Sunday February 15 from 12:00-7:00 PM. If you can help out in the concession stand with the Fathers’ Club, let them know.

We are currently putting the calendar together for next year. I would like to try something a little different. These are some ideas. We are just in the brainstorming stage. Let me know what you think. Email me with your responses – jmuting@stlaurence.com.

  • Parent teacher conferences on Sundays.
  • Thanksgiving break would be a week.
  • Shorter Christmas break—Christmas break would begin on Thursday, December 24 thru Monday, January 4. School resumes January 5.
  • Continuing the late start schedule on Wednesday.
  • Having parent club meetings on the same day once a month.

Please bring a copy of ALL of the scholarship offerings the seniors received to Agnes Kasboske so they can be published in the graduation program.   Even if the students are not going to use the award and go to a different school, they should still bring them in.

Respectfully,

Mr. James C. Muting, Jr.
