From the Office of the Principal,

Parents,

I want to thank all who attended the Mother/Son Dance in January. It was a wonderful evening. The dance floor was filled, the food was awesome, the photo booth was getting a workout, and sons were dancing with their moms.

I hope all attended the Mothers’ Club Super Bingo on Sunday, March 1. It was the largest turn-out in years. This is always a huge fundraiser for the Mothers’ Club.

We will have a tornado drill on Tuesday, March 3. This is a drill that is conducted nationally each year at this time.

Registration for the class of 2019 is Saturday, March 7, from 8:00-12:00.

National Honor Society Induction Mass is Sunday, March 8 at 10:00 AM.

The road to the Final four Events is Saturday, March 21. We need volunteers to help out at the event. If you can volunteer, please contact Adam Lotus at STL.

Parent/teacher conferences will take place on Thursday, March 19 from 4:00-7:00 PM.

There are not classes on Friday, March 20.

The Laurenta Club will sponsor a Souper Bowl on Tuesday, March 24 from 5:30-7:00. You may bring your favorite soup to STL and share it. Money collected goes to local food pantries to help feed the homeless. Any questions, contact Br. Tim Smyth.

Senior Parents: There is a mandatory meeting of seniors and their parents on Tuesday, April 21 at 7:00 PM. This meeting will give the parent and students much end of the year information concerning seniors. Please mark this date on your calendar.

I would like to thank those parents who responded to my questions concerning changes for next year. Parents overwhelming preferred to change parent conferences to Sunday, have one day a month for parent club meetings and keeping the late start Wednesday schedule. Parents preferred to keep the Christmas and Thanksgiving breaks as is. Thank you for your input. We will use this information when making the final decisions.

I want to thank the parents for responding to this and for attending parent club meetings to get information. Attendance at Mothers’, Fathers’ and Laurenta Club meetings is important to get information out to parents and to get immediate feedback. Few decisions are made without getting parent input.

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.

Lord Jesus, at the beginning of our Easter season we thank you for the joy of your resurrection, which our time away from school celebrates. Help us to have a safe, renewing Easter break so we may return to school refreshed and rested. Fill each one of us with the power of new life. We pray in your Holy Spirit and in your holy name. Amen.

Saint Laurence, pray for us. Blessed Edmund, pray for us. Live Jesus in our hearts, forever.

Respectfully,

Mr. James C. Muting, Jr.
