St. Laurentius School in Fishtown is thriving! For the third straight year, an independent review committee at the Great Schools Project rated SLS the highest public, private or Catholic school in the area. This year, we joined the top 10% of schools in Philadelphia by garnering a 9/10 rating. We are confident that we can achieve the 10/10 rating next year! While our school is a Small Wonder, we are never complacent when it comes to offering our students the best education. We must always strive to make our school even better. In April, we will welcome representatives of the Middle States Association and are working to re-certify our school. We’ve added an Honors Math program this year and have expanded our art curriculum with an eye toward adding a comprehensive music program. On April 29, 2017, we’ll take to the streets again in celebration of our school, our community and how much we love them both with the 5th Annual St. Laurentius Fishtown 5K and Finish Line Festival. The race kicks off at 10:00AM and will go through the streets of Fishtown. All registrants will receive a t-shirt, official timing, and refreshments immediately after the race. At 11:30AM, the Finish Line Festival Block Party kicks off with food, beer, DJ, games, and fun for the whole family.

Generous sponsors helped us reach our goal last year. We hope you can help us this year! Our lofty goal is to raise $20,000 to increase the educational offerings at St. Laurentius and demonstrate that when a community values its students, we all benefit. We need your help to make this a success.
