Iowa Basic Skills Testing

Next week, St. Louis will be administering to the students the Iowa Basic Skills Test. There are a number of things you can do to help prepare your child to perform his/her best on the test. Have your child get each night a good night's sleep, provide a breakfast that is rich in protein and complex carbohydrates, reassure your child that he/she is not going to know all the answers, and encourage him/her to do his/her best.

St. Louis Alumni Connection Profile

Katie Glomb has accomplished so much since she graduated from St. Louis Catholic School in 2009. She graduated as Salutatorian from Reicher Catholic High School in 2013 and Cum Laude from Trinity University in 2017. She credits her ability to balance her tasks at hand and the understanding that she has to work hard for what she wants because of the Catholic education she received at St. Louis. Click our St. Louis Alumni Connection Profile to learn more Katie.

If you would like to recommend one of our graduates to be profiled, please contact Mrs. Chollett.
