HALO HIGHLIGHT

What do you think of when you hear the word advancement? Webster's dictionary defines advancement as, "the process of promoting a cause or plan." The goals of our Saints advancement team include: strategic enrollment management, fostering a culture of philanthropic giving, marketing, branding & communicating the great news of our saints community.


In the coming weeks you will be introduced to The Saints Fund: Embracing ALL students through giving. It is our hope & belief that this philanthropic effort will be supported by our entire community. The Saints Fund is the first step to ensuring that St. Louis Catholic is viable & sustainable well into the future.


For Our Saints,

Ashley Ivey-Atkins

Director of Advancement

NHS TUTORING PROGRAM RECEIVES A MAKEOVER

National Honor Society has updated its FREE tutoring program and will use a matching system that takes both class subject and teacher into consideration.

Tutor Requests:


  • Students, parents, or teachers can fill out the TUTORING REQUEST FORM that can be found on each class Moodle page as well as on the SLC website.

  • After submitting the request form, the student will receive an email from the assigned tutor regarding when the tutoring session will take place. Any time changes, cancellations, or concerns with the session should be directed to the assigned tutor. The library is available as a space for tutoring.

  • In addition to this, NHS tutors assist with the Athletic Tutoring on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:30-7 p.m.

STUDENT ATTENDANCE

  • We have had a lot of student absences for the first 9 weeks. Please review the attendance policy in the student handbook by clicking here.

A few notes from our handbook on attendance:
  • Students who return to school without a written explanation from their parents of the absence will have three days to bring the note. After that time, the absence will be unexcused regardless of the reason for the absence.

  • A student who is absent the last half of a school day WILL NOT BE PERMITTED TO PARTICIPATE IN OR ATTEND ANY SCHOOL FUNCTION on the afternoon or night of the absence unless he/she obtains written permission from the Administration.
  • Students who are absent the last half of the day on Friday may not participate in or attend any school function during the weekend unless he/she obtains written permission from the Administration.

PICTURE RETAKES Mon., Nov. 5

  • If your student missed orientation or dislikes his/her pictures taken at orientation, picture retakes will be Monday, Nov. 5.
