Halo Highlight: Fish Fry for the Fund April 3, 2020

Dear St. Louis Catholic Community,


We are approaching our Week of Giving in March that will benefit all of our Saints. The Week of Giving will kick off with our Phone-a-Thon, when we will reach out to alumni all across the nation, and conclude with a community celebration called our “Fish Fry for the Fund.”


As we enter this season of Lent, let us remember that God is calling us to fast, pray, and give alms. The “Fish Fry for the Fund'' will allow us to come together, learn about St. Louis Catholic’s strategic vision for the future and also get a snapshot into our vibrant student life. Your child will receive a book of tickets tomorrow (Friday) in B period.


Here’s how you can help make our community event a success:

● Sell each book of tickets (each book only contains 5 tickets).

● Return unsold tickets, sold books & money to the office no later than Friday, March 20, 2020.

● Attend the event on Friday, April 3rd.


**Incentives for Top Student Sellers:

Grand Champion- 1st- $200

2nd- $150

3rd- $100


Other Information about the event:

● While we are encouraging families to gather on campus to eat, there will be one pick-up area on Bank Street.

● Show Choir will perform from 5-7 p.m.

● Hear the State of the School address with strategic visioning updates from our Advisory Council.

● See a snapshot of February's FAME performance.

● Shop our Bake Sale with proceeds to The Saints Fund.


Each dinner will include: 4 large (shareable) pieces of catfish strips, fries, bread, tartar sauce, ketchup and water for $20.


For our Saints,

Hebert, Obluda Named National Merit Finalists

Seniors Ethan Hebert and Caroline Obluda both achieved perfect ACT scores earlier in their high school careers, and now as graduation approaches, they are also National Merit Finalists.


Only about 1% (15,000 out of 1.5 million) of the U.S. high school students who took the PSAT/NMSQT® in October 2018 and met other program participation requirements reach National Merit Finalist standing, so they're in elite company! Click to read more, including reaction from Hebert and Obluda.

COR Expedition Applications Open

We are currently taking applications for this summer's COR expedition adventure to Colorado from July 8-15! We will be backpacking for several days and rock climbing for one day. We're hoping to continue to grow our students' leadership skills and have them encounter Christ through the outdoors.


Current juniors and sophomores are encouraged to apply. The ideal candidate is a student who is willing to seek adventure, grow spiritually and have a level of maturity necessary for the journey. If your student is interested, have them see Coach Bit Thompson or Ms. Orgeron.
