St. Louis Family,

I am sorry to say that I will not be returning to St. Louis next school year. I have truly loved and enjoyed getting to know, teach and care for so many wonderful students as well as their families. Thank you for all the support everyone has given me in the years I have spent at our school. St. Louis will always be a part of me and hold a special place in my heart.

Cardinal Crawl/Food Pantry Donation

Tighten your shoe laces and get ready to run, walk, or crawl! Event day registration starts at 8 am and race starts at 9 am. Stop in the Activity Center to drop off your Food Pantry Donation and pick up your t-shirts (Not guaranteed if registered after March 11th.)

This is how you know your child goes to a Catholic school.

A parent shared a story: Over spring break we had to put our dog down who was 11 years old. After we buried him, my son asked me if we could see his grave the next day. I said yes, but why do you want to see it tomorrow? He says, "It is Easter time and Jesus rose from the dead so maybe Smokey will also.".

Cardinal Tech Squad

The Cardinal Tech Squad will not meet this month because ISTEP starts the 20th, and club was scheduled for the 19th. We will meet one final time for the year on May 17th. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Student Council News

Middle School Madness took place in March. It was a fun way to enjoy basketball as well as how successful teams work together. Students grades 5 - 8 could find where the 64 teams played, how many of the schools were Catholic (9), matched the mascot, and vocabulary word searches.
