2022-2023 School Calendar

School Supply List

School Shots Needed for Next School Year
Please see the attached flyers for Kindergarten and 6th Grade vaccination requirements. These need to be completed before the first day of school.

New Families
Families new to our school system are provided a mentor. You can expect a call from your mentor closer to the school year starting. They may also call you a few times as the year begins to see how things are going and if you have any questions. We hope this helps you have a smooth transition to STL!

Uniform Closet
Our uniform closet with gently used uniforms will be open during the New Parent Meeting and during Open House. All items are $1 each.

You may also shop in Aug. from 8:00-4:00. However, due to meetings and inservices, you may want to call the school first at 605-338-7042 to make sure we will be open when you stop at the school.

Once school begins, the uniform closet is open during school office hours, 7:30 am - 4:00 pm.

Uniform Plaid Skirts/Jumpers
Skirts/Jumpers can be purchased on the Dennis Uniform site. Once on the site, search for Bishop O'Gorman Catholic Schools and it will bring you to our uniform page.

Navy skirts may also be worn and can be purchased through any vendor or the Dennis Uniform Company.

SFO Advisory Board
If you are interested in being on the SFO Advisory Board, please let me know. The goal is to have at least one parent per grade on the Advisory Board.

The Advisory Board will meet with the principal quarterly to help plan/organize school-community events, activities, and fundraisers and help set the SFO budget. This is a great way to be involved in the school! Meetings will be about one hour and either be over the noon hour or in the evening.
