HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!!


NEW PRINCIPAL


Dr. Vicki VanLaere…will be the new principal of Ladue Middle School. 


Dr. VanLaere comes to Ladue School District from Mehlville School District where she is an Assistant Superintendent and has served in various central office administrative roles since 2006.  Prior to serving in
central office administration, VanLaere was a middle school principal at both Oakville Middle School in Mehlville School District and in the Union R-XI School District where she was also the director of alternative education. 


VanLaere received her Doctorate in Education, her Master’s Degree in Educational Administration and her Specialist’s Degree in Educational Administration from the University of Missouri in St. Louis.  She received her Middle School Endorsement from Southwest Baptist University and her Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from Central University of Iowa.


“Dr. VanLaere is an energetic and accomplished administrator,” says Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources Dr. Judy Sclair.  “She is passionate about the middle school years in terms of the importance of both personal and academic growth.  This enthusiasm for middle school students, in combination with her knowledge and leadership skills, will serve the students of our district well in the years to come.”


Summer Hours 2012


Beginning the week of May 28* through the week of July 16, all district buildings (with the exception of the high school and Spoede for SSD programming, only) will operate on a 4-day workweek, Monday through Thursday from 7:45 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Staff will take a 30-minute lunch during the 4-day workweeks. The Administrative Center will also be closed on Fridays for the dates listed above.


*May 28th is Memorial Day, so that week, we will operate a three-day week, Tuesday through Thursday.


All district buildings will be closed during the winter and spring breaks.



Activity Fee Refund


As you know, at the beginning of this year, the district charged an Activity Fee for each middle school ($25) student. As noted at the time, these additional resources were used to offset the costs of clubs, sports, as well as other extra curricular activities. However, we recently learned of a March 27, 2012 court decision which held that districts are not allowed to charge such fees unless they are charged for a particular extra curricular activity in which a student is specifically participating. 


As a result, the district will gladly refund the 2011-12 activity fee to any families who would like to take advantage of this option. To request your refund, please go to the Ladue Schools website at www.ladueschools.net by June 1, 2012 to complete and submit the “Activity Fee Refund Form.”


Checks will be mailed to all those requesting refunds by the end of June 2012.

If you do not wish to request a refund, please know your contribution was used to fund activities that may have otherwise been reduced or eliminated. All such contributions are deeply appreciated. In order to assure we can continue to offer the extracurricular activities needed or wanted for our students and families in the future, specific activity fees may be reviewed for use again at some future

point. However, there will be no activity fees for the 2012-13 school year.
