Halo Highlight - Catholic Schools Week

Dear Saints Families,

I challenge each of you to consider your family’s weekly schedule. How have you spent your days and evenings? If like mine, it is filled with many worthy activities and events that often have me exhausted by Friday. However, are these activities strengthening my family unit and having eternal significance? I ask each of you the same questions and also to clear your calendar for a Wednesday night event that you and your family won’t want to miss. We’ve been blessed to host a family event from Hard As Nails Ministries (click for details). This event is one way we celebrate Catholic Schools Week starting Sunday. (click for the events ahead). May this week ahead remind us all of the beautiful gift we have in St. Louis Catholic High School.

Friday is Last Day to Buy TWIRP Tickets

Friday is the LAST day to buy TWIRP tickets. They will be sold at lunch and are $10 each. We also have a limited supply of Large & X-Large T-shirts available for $10 - they will be available in the Library until all are sold. Friday is a Spirit Dress Day, so students may wear any SLCHS T-shirt and jeans with closed toe shoes.

Prom Dress Regulations

It is our intent to present our students in a beautiful manner worthy of their high calling in Christ; therefore, all formal wear must be modest. Since this term can be subjective, the following guidelines will be used to interpret “modest." Please use these guidelines to avoid an embarrassing situation and continue to support the efforts of administration.

1. Dress slits may not be higher than fingertip length with arms fully extended.

2. Bare midriffs, plunging necklines and cutouts are not allowed. Two-piece outfits must cover the midriff.

3. No see-through material that exposes midriff, excessive cleavage or thighs.

4. The back of the dress may not be lower than the natural waistline (belly button).

5. Overly form-fitting dresses will not be allowed.

If in doubt, feel free to contact the front office or have your student bring a picture of the garment to school. Thank you for your cooperation!

School & Community News

Saints Among Us

A few faculty members have proven to be Saints Among Us and will be rewarded with a small token of thanks, sponsored by Parent Guild.

  • Coach Bill Painter - continues to spend vacation time repairing and making improvements to the Athletic Complex. Always working with a smile and willing to share a few nuggets of wisdom, Coach Painter’s enthusiastic spirit is worthy of recognition.

  • Coach Bit Thompson and Holley Fontenot Pierce - have stepped up to assist with the Lady Saints softball program. Proving that we are always stronger together, they saw a need and immediately put others before themselves to offer help. Way to go!

**Speaking of softball, there will be an informational meeting for current and prospective players on Monday, Jan. 27, in the Home Ec room at lunch. Lunch will be provided!**
