Please Slow Down!

Please slow down in the parking lots. There have been some close calls lately with drivers going too fast and not watching out for others. Safety First!

Labels for Education

At the end of this school year, Labels for Education will be discontinuing their program. This is only Labels for Education (found on Campbell's, Pepperidge Farm, BIC products and more), not the Boxtops which will still continue. We are having a contest to encourage everyone to send in all the labels they may have at home, starting May 5th and ending May 13th. The top five children who bring in the most Labels will receive an out of uniform pass! Thank you to all who have sent Labels in the past, we have redeemed them for many playground and classroom items over the years. Please contact Anne Meer, 812-933-0125 if you have any questions.

PTO Corner

It's that time of year to start thinking about the PTO Board for next year. There are a few open positions available. PTO is a great way to serve your time and talents to our school. If interested you may email

or contact any of the current PTO officers: Amanda Canessa, Natalie Scheibler, Jenny Schebler or Sherri Rudolph.

The Enrichment Program has been a huge success this year. PTO would like to send out a huge THANK YOU to Wende Lambert, Jenny Schebler and Amy Wonnell for organizing. We would also like to recognize Carla Austin, Shirley Kemper, Andrea Meyer, Anne Meer, Amy Gutzwiller, Emili Uden, Amber McGuire, Angela Gauck and all other volunteers for donating their time and talents to teach the kids! Thank you!

nurse news

Per St. Louis School Health Policy, ALL MEDICATION WILL BE DISCARDED IF NOT PICKED UP BY THE LAST DAY OF THE SCHOOL YEAR. Medication can not be sent home with students.

Artwork is coming home!

Artwork is coming home the week of 16-20th.

There is a lot of art, so please send in a piece of poster board before that week so your child can make a portfolio to tote their work home safety.

The standard size of poster board is 22"x28". If they can find larger, it would be better as we will be folding them in half and stapling the sides.

Office Remodel Update

I would genuinely like to thank all of you who have been able to donate towards the St. Louis School Office Renovation. This has been a project that I have put a lot of thought into. Not only because it is the location that I work in everyday, but because there are so many others that come in and out and would benefit from it. My goal is to make it warm and welcoming with better functionality for staff, students, and parents.

Current Donations (including the Rummage Sale Projected Income) Already Received Will Pay For:

Rough-in (framing, drywall, trim & doors, electric) - $4530

Bathroom Plumbing - $3000

Paint - $1890

Flooring - $1950

Cabinets - $4322

Nurses Cabinet Refinished - $300

Items Still Needed to Be Purchased to Complete the Remodel:

Receptionist Cubical - $2075

Nurse Cubical - $2075

Business Manager Cubical - $3750

Refrigerator - $500

Blinds - $180

Chairs - $160

Fabric, Curtain Rods, Rugs, and Plants - $500

If you are still wanting to make a contribution to this project, you can do so in either the school or parish office. You can also help by participating in the Rummage Sale either by helping with organizing, working during, dropping off your items to sell, or shopping during the Rummage Sale. All the money raised will go towards this project. Please contact Jan Narwold to find out how you can help at 812-934-3310 or

Jr. High Youth Group

7th Graders who would like to be 8th Grade Ambassadors for the 2016-17 school year, please fill out and return the attached form by August 19, 2016, which is our first Jr. High Youth Group of the new school year.

8th Graders who would like to be added to the High School Youth Group email distribution list,please send an email to I apologize, but the link in the previous email was spelled wrong.

We are desperately seeking parents, grandparents, etc. to help lead Jr. High Youth group. If you or someone you know is able to commit to helping guide this great group of students, please let me know right away. We are working on a curriculum for the school year and would love help getting it into place.

In the past we have collected these forms throughout the year and this has become problematic and time consuming.
