Halo Highlight: New Features at Remote Learning Hub

Dear St. Louis Catholic Community,

Teachers are continuing to instruct & guide learning of essential skills during this last quarter, and we're learning the "connections" are what's most important. Though our school building is now closed to the public, teachers remain available by email and designated virtual office hours (details below). We appreciate our students' adapting to remote learning more than ever.


Here's just one example of our the innovation of our Saints - Ms. Liz Mueller's latest Photography video lesson: (Enjoy the calming music!)

Saints March to Give...Thanks & Praise

This Sunday will kick off our Week of Thanks & Praise for our Saints community who give so much of themselves by volunteering & giving back to the school they know and love. We are also praying for our nation during this time and for the many hometown heroes who sacrifice daily to make our community safe.


So let’s march together and give thanks & praise for our blessings, and continue to pray for our community! Please join us in signing up to cover the week in prayer. Each time slot is only 20 minutes. Thank you in advance for your continued support!
