Principal's Corner

Thank You for Supporting Rushville Family

The following is an email we received from St. Mary's in Rushville: “Thank you for collecting money to help our family whose home, and all its contents, were destroyed by a fire a few weeks ago. The donation was very generous! We were able to purchase new Christmas stockings, Christmas pajamas, bedroom decorations and necessities, some Christmas gifts for the family, as well as a new blanket for each person. Again, thank you so much -- it is times like this when being in a Catholic School is so special, as we know God is working through each of you to show this family His love and grace.”

STEM Grant from RCCF

A big thank you goes to the Ripley County Community Foundation. They approved a grant for SLS to purchase some STEM supplies.

FYI - 20 Degrees Wind Chill

Just an FYI that 20 degrees is our cutoff for sending students outside for recess. We actually use the wind chill to make this determination. So, 20 degrees wind chill or above we go outside. Anything below that we keep the students inside.

They are due back to the office by Monday, January 15th before school.

Locks of Love

Did you ever think you could help another person by donating your hair? As in the past, this year at our school talent show during Catholic Schools Week, we will be looking for someone to donate their hair for Locks of Love. The student or staff member willing to participate must have 10 inches of hair to donate. If you are considering doing this, please contact Mrs. Jill Hollins. Thank you!


Jayden and Libby Boedicker made their First Communion at Mass on Dec. 20. Congratulations to them both, as well as their family!

Kindness--pass it on!

Did you know that kindness is WAY more than doing something nice? Being kind, and expecting nothing in return, can actually make you healthy, too!

Based on our kindness chain, there are a lot of smiles and positive energy here at SLS. Check out the attached short research synopsis at your leisure, and continue to enjoy the beauty of sharing kindness.

Yearbook pre-orders

We will be taking pre-orders for the SLS yearbooks this month. Don't let the school year pass you by without collecting those memories in print! Please fill out the yellow envelope that was sent home with your student, and return to school along with your payment.

The price will remain at $17 this year for orders that are placed (and paid for) by the end of January. There will be a limited number of extra yearbooks ordered, and they will be priced at $19 per book. Thank you!

Steubenville Youth Conference

​The Steubenville Youth Conference is open to all Catholic teens in 8th-12th grades as of Fall 2017.​ We live in a world where there are voices shouting at us from all sides, trying to tell us who we are and who we aren’t, who we should be and who we shouldn’t be. If we pay too much attention to these voices, it won’t be long before we forget our true identity altogether. But amidst all the noise is our loving Father, who wants to make Himself known to us and speak truth about who we are.

God’s love is deeper and His plan for our lives is greater than anything the world has to offer – will we allow Him to reveal it to us? This summer, over 50,000 Catholic teens across North America will participate in 25 Steubenville Youth Conferences, and we want you to be one of them! Come experience the love of God in a new and more profound way. He has so much in store for you. ​ June 15-17, 2018. Registrations are now open.

To register go to​, email, or call Carrie Wesseler (812)212-9477 or Angie Moster (812)212-7026​. Thank you!

Lost and Found

Please check the below pictures for any of you student's missing belongings. Our lost and found is getting quite a collection!

String Theory - Quality Affordable Music For Your Festival

String Theory was formed in 2016 and is comprised of former members of The Remains

and Haymarket Riot, two of Cincinnati’s most respected bands. We focus on classic rock

material from artists such as The Beatles, Eagles, CSN, America, Queen, Neil Young, Pink

Floyd, Simon and Garfunkle as well as some contemporary artists like Jason Mraz, Mumford

and Sons and Phil Phillips.

The four members of the group have over 100 years of performing experience and our focus

is to provide high quality entertainment for budget conscious parishes. There are a number of

bands that perform the festival circuit that are outside the budgets of most parishes. Our goal

is to service the smaller parishes and help them by supplying a quality evening of music and

working with your budgets to make it work for you. I am from a smaller parish in Cincinnati so

I know first hand how challenging this is.

Please feel free to contact me when you begin planning your festival for 2018. We would love to

have the opportunity to work with you.

Thank You,

Pete Ellerhorst
