Young Hearts for Life FREE ECG Screenings
Young Hearts for Life will be at St. Laurence on October 5th to screen all students for heart conditions which could lead to Sudden Cardiac Death. These painless, quick, FREE tests will be conducted by trained cardiologists on-site. Do not miss the chance to get your child screened. Parent volunteers are also needed. No medical knowledge is required, and your help will go a long way.

Representatives will be here to talk to parents on September 12 and to students on September 27. We encourage you all to participate. CLICK HERE for full details on how to sign up.

Picture Day
Picture Day will be Thursday, September 7th & Friday, September 8th. Students will go down during 1 period of their English class so students should check with their teacher to see which day they will be going. All students should be wearing their polo on both Thursday and Friday.

Seniors will also have their picture taken for IDs, but those photos will not be in the yearbook.

Seniors and senior parents are invited to attend a presentation entitled “Let’s Talk About College” on Monday, September 11 at 7:00 PM in the LRC. The Counselors will present information about college-related topics such as college selection, financial aid, etc. If you would like to attend, please send an e-mail to, or telephone, one of the Counselors with your name and the number of people who will be attending so a sufficient number of handouts will be available.
