Every Friday Note
October 1, 2021
- The 8th grade had their annual retreat day at St. Lawrence today. This is such a great opportunity for these leaders to refresh their desire, willingness and abilities to walk with Christ.
- We welcome Emily Perry back to our staff. She will be working with the 4th and 5th graders in math using an innovative program called Dreambox. We have already experience a lot of positive results.
- Homecoming is this Sunday! A ceremony to honor our 8th grade football players will begin at 12:30 PM. The Cadet game will begin at 1 PM. The 5/6 grade game will follow. The 8th grade concession stand will be open! Come support our 8th graders as they earn money for their trip to Washington D.C.
- We are asking for your continued support and help as we continue to navigate through Covid. If your child is ill and experiencing symptoms of Covid please keep him/her and siblings home until Covid is ruled out and notify the school.
School Lunch Box
This week we served a new menu to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month: Glazed Chicken with Cuban Rice and Beans, Pineapple/Cantaloupe/Mango Salsa, Cornbread and Watermelon with Tajin. One student complimented the cafe staff by saying it "tastes like my Mom's". Thank you. It's the ultimate compliment for a school kitchen!
Fall Break (October 18-22)
Parent Teacher Conferences
We are conducting a survey at St. Lawrence to celebrate our diversity. Your participation is needed and is anonymous. In order to better understand our students and their immediate family, we would like to know where in the world we are form. Which countries are represented in your household? For example, I was born in the USA, my wife was born in the USA, and my son was born in the USA.
Estamos realizando una encuesta para celebrar nuestra diversidad aquí en la escuela de San Lorenzo y su participación es muy importante y será anónima. Esto lo estamos llevando a cabo con el fin de comprender mejor a nuestros estudiantes y a sus familias, y para esto nos gustaría saber en qué parte del mundo nos hemos formado. ¿Qué países están representados en su hora?
Por ejemplo, yo soy nacido aquí e los estados unidos, mi esposa nació en los estados unidos y mi hijo nació en los estados unidos.
A note to this. If you are late arriving on a Wednesday or Friday, which are our scheduled school mass days, please take your child to the church prior to 9:15 am.
Curricular Material Assistance Form
Summer Pandemic EBT
Summer P-EBT is for all students determined eligible to receive free and reduced meals for the 2020-2021 school year. This issuance is for ALL National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program students and ALL students that attend a Community Eligibility Provision school. Students and their schools do not need to participate in a summer school program to receive this benefit.
Benefits will be loaded to existing P-EBT cards for each eligible child. A new P-EBT card will be issued to students that have not previously received any type of P-EBT benefit.
Thank you Sarah Stephens for pointing this out to us. In her research, she wanted me to share this with you. Here is a link with some information: https://www.in.gov/fssa/dfr/dfr-policy-changes-and-actions/pandemic-ebt/
Quite a ways down on that page there is a place to click on if you need to change your mailing address or request a replacement card. Hopefully, you will find what you need and will be pleasantly surprised!
