Halo Highlight: Marching Toward May

Dear St. Louis Catholic Community,

As we find new routines and "norms" I've discovered a beautiful music ministry by Steve Angrisano on social media. He is in the process of writing a new song using inspiration from Bl. Solanus Casey, a humble man who gave thanks to God in advance. As we stay with the theme of "Marching On" and prepare for next school year, we give thanks to God ahead of time, knowing He will bless the fruits of our labor. As a staff, we are dedicated to taking lessons learned from this time and using them to improve our school. So let us "March On" and constantly give thanks to God in advance for His boundless blessings.

Remote Learning in Action

Our students and faculty have continued to impress us in remote learning!

Advanced Dance students are creating movement and digital images to illustrate how they personally “persevere through obstacles in life,” much like the Coronavirus Outbreak. Below is Caroline Broussard’s work in progress, choreographed to Jesse McCartney’s song “Better with You.”
