Message from Principal, Mrs. Jody Williams


St. Lawrence School – A very special Family of God!

noid1y01256

Welcome to St. Lawrence School! Here at St. Lawrence, you will find a warm, caring and safe family atmosphere where respect and responsibility are nurtured and maintained.  It is in this environment that we are committed to developing the whole child in:

– their love and faith in God,

– stewardship towards others,

– strong, diverse academics,

– best practices and technology initiatives,

– and an inspiration and enthusiasm for lifelong learning.

We have such a dedicated, qualified staff and a wonderful support system of parents, parish volunteers, and community resources.  These individuals contribute so much of their valuable treasures with gifts of their time and talent that enrich our curriculum and lives!

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our school. You can read more about our initiatives and goals in the School Improvement Plan. My door is always open if you have any questions. Just ask any kindergartner as they can especially get past our secretary’s desk (which is a little high) and come to visit me!

God Bless,

Mrs. Jody Williams

                                                       We are Blessed and JOYful!

         Jesus Teaches Responsibility   Others are Respected    You are Safe
