Grades Preschool - Kindergarten: Carpool

Grades 1-4: Gym Carpool

For both morning and afternoon carpool, vehicles will line up on Parkwood Drive heading West (toward Sherwood Forest Blvd.) and will curve south onto Dartmoor Drive.

At the intersection of Dartmoor and Sherbrook, vehicles will proceed straight across Sherbrook and will immediately turn left into the school parking lot. Vehicles will form a line in front of the library and school office. Students will be called by a member of our team and will be assisted into the vehicles. To exit carpool, vehicles leave the parking lot in front of the gym turning right onto Sherbrook.

Grades 5-8: Church Carpool

Vehicles will approach the school on Goodwood Blvd. heading toward Sherwood Forest. Vehicles should form a line down Goodwood in the bike lane to allow non-carpool traffic to pass. Vehicles will proceed past the athletic field/playground and will turn right into the church parking lot. With the field to your right, drive toward the 5th and 6th grade building to drop off or pick up. To exit carpool, drive through the parking lot toward Goodwood Blvd. with the church on your right. While still in the parking lot, turn right and drive past the church before turning left to exit the parking lot onto Goodwood Blvd. going west.

Accelerated Reader (AR)

The Accelerated Reader program allows students in grades 3rd-6th the opportunity to practice and enhance their reading skills including comprehension and speed. Students will be expected to earn points by reading books and taking a computerized test each nine weeks. Students meeting their required point goal for the nine-week period will earn alternate dress and admission to “spend” their points in our AR store. Students earning 500 points or more will become members of the 500 point club and receive a medal and recognition at a ceremony.

STAR Testing

STAR testing is part of the Accelerated Reading program used in many schools/districts across the United States to provide information about students’ reading abilities. The STAR test indicates the reading range in which the student has optimal comprehension without excessive frustration. The test will be administered five times per year (at the beginning of the year and at the end of each nine-week period), so we can track student progress.

Important Medical Information and More

At STM, we’re blessed to have a full-time nurse, Mrs. Rochelle Bowman, RN. Students are allowed to visit her when they are not feeling well, to take doctor-prescribed medication, or if they hurt themselves on campus. She can be reached at rochelle@stmbr.org.

Attention 5th Grade Parents:  Louisiana requires booster shots after the 11th birthday. EVERY student will be required to provide an updated shot record to attend school in 6th Grade. Shots that are now REQUIRED for entry into 6th Grade are the following: Tdap, Varicella (second dose) and Meningococcal Vaccine (MCV-4). Tdap and MCV4 can not be given until AFTER the 11th birthday. The Varicella vaccine is not required if your child has had the chicken pox disease, but history of the disease must be noted on the shot record. Please make an appointment to get these vaccinations this school year. Shot records will be due July 1. Once your child has been vaccinated, please bring an updated shot record to First Aid.
