The mission of St. Louis Catholic School is to prepare the leaders
of tomorrow with the light of Christ as their guide.
A NOTE FROM OUR PRINCIPAL, MRS. GEE
I write to inform you that Mrs. Barbara Fletcher, our Second Grade Teacher, left employment at St. Louis Catholic Church and School on 1/26/2018. I would like to thank Mrs. Fletcher for her service and contribution to St. Louis Catholic School. Please join me in wishing Mrs. Fletcher success in her future endeavors. We all pray that God will bless her as she moves onward.
CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK
Thursday, February 8th is a jeans day for all students who wore their school uniforms to mass, at any Catholic church, for Open House Sunday (1/28). Traditional jeans day dress code applies. Feel free to call the school office with questions.
NOTES FROM THE HEALTH ROOM
It ‘s that time of year again. Flu, head lice and strep throat are common occurrences as our children are more confined to their classrooms. Please make sure your children are washing their hands often. Students should not share hats, scarves or water bottles. If your child develops a fever of 100 degrees or above they need to stay home until they have been fever-free for 24 hours.
We appreciate your diligence in keeping our St. Louis family healthy this winter. Thank you!
