St. Louis Catholic High School | Thursday, January 6, 2022
From the Desk of Our Principal
Welcome back and Happy New Year. I hope this first week back to school was one of familiarity and comfort. As we progress through the second semester, time will surely fly by and before we know it, May will be here. With its longer evenings, winter has a way of providing time to regroup and rest. Use this time to sit with your student over dinner and have a genuine conversation with them. They are full of wisdom, we just need to slow down to hear them! Finally, look for exciting updates to come in the following weeks on the Pavilion, new campus progress, and added curriculum improvements. We are diligently planning for the future but determined to "run the mile we are in" with conviction and pride.
Honor and Praise God...In All Ways,
Communication is an integral part to keeping our students safe. If anyone sees concerning behavior or text messages, tell administration so it can be looked into. See something, say something.

Senior Counseling Meetings
Courage of Conviction
Would you like to be part of a Capital Crew of St. Louis sophomores, juniors, and seniors this Easter Break 2022 flying to Washington, DC? We will see government and politics first-hand by visiting face-to-face with governmental officials and their staff. We will visit monuments and memorials and worship in churches built during the founding of our nation's capital. Exploring the inner workings of the Church and State, we hope this excursion will inspire students to courageously lead with conviction. More information is coming soon.

Prom: February 12
One of the beautiful and unique aspects of Catholic Education is having the school community immersed in the Liturgical calendar as well as academic. Because the Lenten season falls from March 2nd until Easter, we determined that February would be a better date than the end of April. We know everyone is anxious to begin planning so please be reminded of the dress code rules for all who are attending. At this time, dates from other schools WILL be allowed to attend. Should new LDH or CDC guidelines come out, we will reevaluate things as needed.
With the February 12th Prom date approaching, many of you have started looking for your suits and dresses. Please keep in mind the dress code below when shopping. Reminder – It is your job to check with administration before purchasing a dress if
you are unsure.
- Formal attire is required. This includes tuxedos, suits (jacket, tie, dress shirt, and slacks), and formal dresses.
- Dress shirt must remain on and buttoned during prom. Coats may be taken off while dancing.
- Students may only wear hats that are considered formal wear – no baseball caps.
- Shoes are required.
- Sunglasses are not to be worn.
- Piercings are prohibited when worn in any visible body part other than the ear. Boys are not allowed to have piercings in the ear.
- Boys must wear suits or tuxedos. Girls must wear dresses.
- should not be shorter than fingertip length. This includes the slits in dresses.
- Should not be low cut in the back.
- Should not reveal cleavage. No plunging necklines allowed.
- Should not have sheer, skin-toned fabric that gives the illusion of bare skin in areas that should not be bare. No see-through material.
- No two-piece dresses with midriff showing.
