Student Life

Student Activities

There are many opportunities for students to participate at SLCS. All grade levels, interests, and abilities have programs available to help students remain active, stimulated, and happy. These activities enhance the learning environment and add to the well-rounded education they receive.


Living Our Faith

Feast of St. Louis

St. Louis Catholic School believes that faith is not just for religion class.  Opportunities to live and practice the Catholic faith occur on a daily basis.  The following are a few ways our students live their faith at SLCS.

Faith Families

Students from PreK to 8th grade are grouped together as a “family” and matched with a teacher. These faith families participate together in Advent and Lent activities, as well as Field Day.

Altar Servers

Students in grades 5-8 serve as altar servers. They serve at Mass and at funerals scheduled during the school day.

Liturgy Ministers

Students serve as readers, offertory gift bearers, and choir members at weekly Masses during the school year.

Mass Buddies

6th, 7th, and 8th grade students are paired with 1st grade, PreK, and Kindergarten, respectively. This arrangement creates a friendship between the older and younger students as well as helping younger students stay focused.
