Vision Fund Grants Awarded to SLS

Mrs. Lents was awarded $579 for digital cameras that will be used with a literacy project. Her students will create storyboards, with pictures they have taken from different perspectives, and turn it into a photo journal/story. The cameras will also be available for Mrs. Frey to use in Art, as well as other staff members to use throughout the building.

​Miss Trenkamp was awarded $402 for Big Wheels that 1st and 2nd grade will use in their reading program. The "St. Louis School 500", an amazing race at the end of the school year using the Big Wheels, will be a fun incentive to get kids reading.

Mrs. Emsweller was awarded $700 to improve our school garden. Students will plan and create three raised garden beds with which to grow vegetables. They will also create a book with information and recipes involving vegetables. This project will incorporate math, reading, writing, and science, as well as health.

St. Louis School would like to thank the "Joan and John Hillenbrand VISION FUND for Innovation" for their support.

Thank you,

Mr. Chad Moeller

Field trip to Clowe's Hall

This past Friday, the SLS 6th grade class dressed up to enjoy a classic broadway ballet....The Nutcracker. The class traveled to Butler University where they, along with an auditorium full of students, enjoyed the show at Clowe's Hall. It was a beautiful day and the students were SUPER! Hopefully all caught the Christmas spirit after hearing the great tunes and seeing the powerful choreography.

Yearbook pre-orders

We will be taking pre-orders for the SLS yearbooks again this year when we return from Christmas break. Don't let the school year pass you by without collecting those memories in print! Please look for the yellow envelope to come home with your student the first week of January.

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!

"Gobble Up" Food Drive a success

Pictured: 8th graders Benjamin Moster, Alyssa Wanstrath, Chelsea Robertson, Lucas Anderson, Emma Webering, Cayden Pohlman and Cody Mohr

The Gobble Up Food Drive was sponsored by the SLS student council. The drive took place from November 3rd- November 21st. The food drive is a way students could support local families who need extra help over the Thanksgiving holiday. Students collected in excess of 1,200 items. All items were taken to the Batesville Food Pantry. The SLS student body did a great job collecting food but special attention needs to go to Mrs. Farmer and Mrs. Konradi’s kindergarten classes for bring in almost 150 cake mixes and frostings. Mrs. Narwold’s 2nd grade class was also able to collect over 100 cans of soup, gravy and broth.

SLS would like to thank The Village Store and Kroger for letting us use their grocery carts during our food drive.

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
