Attending Mass is the highlight of our week and on Holy Days of Obligation, and so, children wear a “dress uniform” on those days to look their very best for the occasion.
Every student enrolled in a Catholic School in the State of Texas shall be immunized against vaccine preventable diseases caused by infectious agents in accordance with the immunization schedule adopted by the Texas Department of State Health Services. A student who fails to present the required evidence shall not be accepted for enrollment. The only exception to the foregoing requirement is a medical exemption signed by a licensed physician (M.D. or D.O.) authorized to practice in the State of Texas, including the physicians license number. Immunizations are not in conflict with the Catholic faith. Conscientious objections or waivers, which may be permissible for attendance in public schools, do not qualify as an exemption in Catholic Schools in Texas. (Atty. Gen. Op. GA-0420) This policy was adopted by Texas Catholic Conference Education Department, December 2008 and voted on April 3, 2017 to keep as written with no changes by the Bishops of Texas.
Every family is required to serve the school community at least 20 hours per school year. There are many ways to participate:
The St. Louis Catholic School Auction is held annually and is considered HSA’s largest fundraiser. There are many opportunities to help. Every type of event work is needed for this fantastic benefit event!
The Booster Club actively supports all of our athletic programs and teams, as well as the Physical Education program at our school.
Family-to-Family is HSA’s welcoming committee for new families to St. Louis Catholic School. Current families are paired with incoming families to make their introduction to the school more personal. Family-to-Family activities vary from year to year. The activities include playdates, meet-and-greet for older students, uniform help, carpooling assistance and family dinners out at local restaurants. Most activities are in the summer, so families can have an opportunity to meet others before school starts.
The Family Fun Committee plans the HSA sponsored special events that take place throughout the year. Examples include the Family Dance and Family Movie Night.
Every Autumn the St. Louis community celebrates Fun Fest. It is not only a school-wide festival, but is also an event that draws family and friends from the larger parish and nearby community. With games and food booths, live entertainment and a silent auction, Fun Fest is a wonderful way to spend a Sunday (after Mass, of course!). Many volunteers are needed for setup, clean up, and coordinating booths and ticket sales.
St. Louis Catholic School Annual Golf Tournament is a fun event that takes place in the spring that supports St. Louis Catholic School. Please join us next year for food, fellowship, and fore!
The Helping Hands committee provides community service to families in need. They serve meals, provide services, foster a spirit of community, and build stronger relationships in SLCS families while strengthening our Christian faith.
Honors Readers Program. The HSA Library committee plans creative ways to help students celebrate reaching their reading goals. They support the Honors Readers Program, which is designed to encourage students to develop a LOVE for reading by encouraging students to read quality books and to read often.
Reading at St. Louis (RASL). The HSA sponsors the RASL program, which provides students (and teachers) a free book of their choice from age-appropriate selections twice a year.
The Room Parent Coordinators are the first point of contact for all classroom parent volunteers at St. Louis Catholic School. They work with all classroom parents and the school administration to ensure that the students and teachers benefit from the coordinated efforts of each volunteer.
The SCRIP committee members are responsible for ordering SCRIP cards, organizing SCRIP sales after weekend Masses, counting and itemizing cash and checks from sales, and turning the money over to the HSA Treasurer for deposit. The committee also recruits and organizes volunteers for sales, and prepares information for publicizing the sales. The SCRIP committee is always in need of volunteers for 30-45 minutes for after Mass sales.
HSA parents on this committee show our appreciation to people and businesses that support St. Louis Catholic School and the HSA. Working from home, members of this committee write letters on behalf of the SLCS HSA.
