PLACEMENT REQUESTS The school administration, in cooperation with the classroom teachers, is responsible for the student classroom placement assignments. Many factors are considered when determining classroom placements, including student ability levels, academic strengths and challenges, processing skills, special education needs, personalities, friendships, maturity levels, past and present conflicts and resolutions, growth and development, teacher-student relationships, student to student relationships, gender influences, birthdates, birth order, etc. The teachers and administration of the school make all placement decisions with the students’ best interest in mind. Any educational concerns need to be submitted in writing to Mrs. Fyfe no later than April 19th. Specific teacher requests will not be accepted.


CONGRATULATIONS!

We wish to congratulate two of our talented 8th grade students.

!

Lauren Bartlett took 3rd place among all the 8th Grade students competing at the State Level Spelling Contest. This is no small feat and reflects well on her spelling ability and on Lumen Christi School. Ryan Duffey took 3rd place among all the 14 year-old boys competing at the State Level Free Throw Championship Contest. This is a great accomplishment for Ryan and again puts Lumen Christi School on the map among all the schools in the state for great athletic and scholastic accomplishment. Please congratulate Lauren and Ryan on their achievement.

In honor of

NATIONAL PRETZEL DAY The first pretzel was created in 620 AD by a monk in southern France or northern Italy. It was originally called a 'pretiola' and was renamed 'pretzel' later when it migrated to Germany and Austria. In the 17th century, pretzels were known as a marriage knot. In 1861, pretzel twisting was the highest-paying job in the Philadelphia region. Today, machines do the twisting.
