Halo Notes

St. Louis Catholic High School

Thursday, November 15, 2018


When we look back and reflect on the past few months of school, it's easy to remember all the activities and accolades earned, but let's take a moment and reflect on the gratitude and the grace displayed throughout our school. Last week our Saints welcomed over 600 grandparents on campus. Even with the unseasonable weather, joy & laughter graced our halls. The day was filled with frolic & fun, but gratitude was the common theme.

This week, we welcomed over 200 eighth graders from area partner schools. Our Ambassadors embraced them and shared the passion and culture that is St. Louis Catholic High School, while teachers & students displayed the best of St. Louis Catholic.

Now, as we prepare for the Thanksgiving holidays, we'd like to say thank you to each and every one of you for believing in the mission of our school. We are so thankful for you and for the future of St. Louis Catholic!

Attendance Reminders

We have had an increase in student tardiness. Students must arrive to school by 7:45 to avoid an unexcused tardy. Please review the attendance policy in the student handbook.

Open House is Wednesday, Nov. 28

Open House is the Wednesday we return from Thanksgiving break. As always, we invite students from across the area to discover the Saint life from 5-7 p.m. We are also looking for proud St. Louis Catholic parents to accompany our Saints Ambassadors as they give tours during Open House. We know you as parents are an incredible source of unique perspectives and helpful insights for future Saints families, so we hope you will join us to shine a bright light on our wonderful school at Open House.

Please contact Director of Admissions Heather Ieyoub to volunteer. St. Louis Catholic alumni are especially encouraged to participate in this new endeavor.

New student applications will be launching during Open House as well. Click here to view all the details and important dates on the Admissions page of our website. Our re-enrollment period is from Jan. 21-Feb. 4, 2019, and you must complete the online application process before Feb. 4 to ensure your spot for next year.
