Students Trained in CPR With Help of Grants
St. Louis School wants students to leave SLS as meaningful members of the community. One way to do this is to get them trained in performing CPR. This training will assist them in being able to save lives, no matter where they go after leaving SLS.
With the help of grants, we were able to purchase CPR manikins, face shields, CPR training for two staff members, and CPR manuals. Now all of our 7th and 8th grade students have been trained in performing CPR. St. Louis School wants to thank the Ripley County Community Foundation and the Rising Sun Regional Foundation for their generous support. It is through these generous people that we were able make this a reality.

Cardinal Crawl -- this Saturday, April 13th
The St. Louis Haiti Ministry
SLS "BOGO" Book Fair
If you are unable to attend, a grandparent (or even Dad) is welcome to come in your place.
SLS will be having a field day the last student day! We are in need of parents to come and help out. Joan has sent out an email from sign up genius to help you all see what is available and what we need help with. I like to give you as much notice as possible and understand this is a month and a half away. We appreciate any time you can give to us for this day.
Our field day will be held at the Liberty Park if there is no rain, and if it rains I will keep you posted. Getting set up in the morning would be a great help, filtering a spot while the kids are here is amazing, and helping take it all down would also be great. It will be a super fun day for the kids, teachers, and parents! Let me know if you can help out, and I will send out an email when the time gets closer.
Thanks so much for your time and being AWESOME! If you have questions contact me (not Joan) as I have the answers you're wanting. Thank you!!
Lost and Found
Additional subs needed at St. Louis
We are in desperate need of a few more warm, caring, dependable substitute teachers here at SLS. Candidates are required to have 2 years (aprox 30 credit hours) of college, or a substitute teaching license. Anyone interested in applying should stop in the school office and pick up a packet of paperwork. Please call the school office at 812-934-3310, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions you might have.
Just an additional note.........
The potential sub can be a commuting college student that has a "free" day during the week where they might be available. It could be a retired adult who wants to stay active, but not TOO busy. It could be a grandparent who would just like to volunteer a day now and then, or someone who just needs a little extra income. Subs come in all shapes and sizes, and are not required to give any more than they want to. Any amount of help you can provide is appreciated, and you always have the option of saying "NO" any time I call. Thank you for considering!

Indy Honor Flight
Steven’s grandfather was chosen to go on the Indy Honor Flight to Washington D.C. on April 13th. The 7th and 8th graders wrote letters to him and other veterans on the flight to be read during mail call that day. The Honor Flight allows our veterans to visit war memorials in Washington and honors them for their service to our country.
We are so grateful for our service men and women and their families!
