My name is Charlene Colangelo. This is my fourth year at St. Paul's. I look forward to getting to know all of the families and to become acquainted with my k-2 students.
I am originally from New Jersey, where I taught for 25 years at Holy Cross Lutheran school. I moved to Iowa from Connecticut with my husband and our cat in 2017. We now live in Latimer.
The School's Mission Statement
St. Paul's Lutheran School helps Christian parents in the strengthening of their child's faith in Jesus Christ. We provide a safe and loving environment by teaching the entire word of God and preparing students through strong academics for careers and service to God and others.
Week of May 24-26
Please make sure your child has appropriate shoes for the playground. Shoes without backs, such as flip-flops are not safe on the playground equipment. If the children are wearing this type of shoe please send a pair of sneakers to wear on the playground and for gym on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Students without appropriate shoes will not be allowed on the playground equipment.
Please be sure your child has appropriate outerwear. If the temperature is below freezing students must have a coat, hat , and gloves, or they cannot go outside. If it snows, they will need snow pants and boots. Keep in mind that our first recess is at 9:15 AM. It is often still cold then even on days when it gets warm in the afternoon.
Please leave toys and collectibles at home. children are not allowed to play with toys from home at school and trading is not allowed either.
If your child is bringing money to school for chapel or anything, please put it in an envelope or ziploc bag and label what it is for. Loose money gets lost, and often the children do not remember what it is for. Except for chapel or some other school project there is no need for the children to have money at school.
All-Read 20 minutes each day. Record what you read on the Home Reading log.
Remember to include any books you read on Epic. Epic does not report to me what you read, only how long you read and how many books. May Reading Logs due by Tuesday May 25.
Summer Reading: Each child will receive a summer reading packet. Since reading is a new skill for young students, reading over the summer will help to avoid "summer slide" where students can lose six months to a year of reading ability. Students should read and complete the questions in the packet and return it in the fall to receive a prize.
