JANUARY – Christmas Report – Old St. Nick made a stop at St. Louis School and left a poke of fruit and candy for all the students. It was a good start for the Advent Season. Our Christmas program was a great success. The hard work of Mr. Conley and the students really paid off! All students and attendees enjoyed cookies and soft drinks and socializing in the cafeteria afterwards.
Baby Shower – The St. Louis Student Council sponsored a “Baby Shower” for the Pregnancy Center East. Families were very generous in filling a “pack and play” with diapers and clothing for newborns and toddlers. Our school strives to be a working example of Christian love and compassion.
FEBRUARY – A Noteworthy Program – The “Kindness” program at St. Louis is a positive, prevention effort to catch bullying before it starts. Our Junior High Krew is separated into three divisions; business, marketing and performance. Each group has a specialized task to promote respect and good will among the students at St. Louis School. The first effort was for students to show random acts of kindness to other students regardless of grade. Their target of kindness could write on a heart or butterfly the nice deed that was shown to them and the note would be added to the trunk of a tree attached to the storage doors in the cafeteria. The goal is for students to see beyond themselves and learn to respect others. MY ! How our tree has grown. Come and see for yourself how love blooms.
Talent Show – February 2, 2018: The gymnasium at St. Louis School was transformed into a theater where students who tried out for a spot on the Talent Show displayed their abilities in song, dance, magic and joke telling. It was a wonderful performance by all and enjoyed by all.
Catholic Schools Week – Catholic Schools Week was celebrated the week of January 28, 2018 – February 2, 2018. A Catholic Education is a great beginning in raising principled, compassionate citizens for our future. The theme this year was “Learn, Serve, Lead and Succeed”. Each day had a special focus to show appreciation for people or organizations who do service to school, community, etc. Mrs. Laura Shoemake organized a sock and hand sanitizer collection to send to a military troop. Special activities were peppered throughout the week for the enjoyment of the students and faculty.
Mardi Gras Auction – The Parents’ Club Auction this year was held at Norlyn Manor and was truly a gala event for all those who attended! All proceeds are used for the needs of the school. Please thank the Parents’ Club members for such a fantastic job. A lot of planning, time and work went into the support of our school.
