St. Louis Catholic High School | Thurs., Jan. 27, 2022
From the Desk of Our Principal
Now you are Christ’s body, and individually parts of it. – 1 Cor 12:27
This past weekend’s second reading is so applicable to a school community. Parents, students, and staff all bring unique gifts to the collective community of St. Louis Catholic. As we finalize preparations for Catholic Schools Week, I am reminded that our unique gifts and passions woven together make a beautiful tapestry, as witnessed in this newsletter. A sampling of strong academic awareness through free study hall weekly, ACT preparation, and resources (grade calculator and scheduling events) are provided for our students. Parents, please have your student take advantage of these offerings. Further down the newsletter, our vibrant student life is apparent with the tremendous FBLA results. WHAT A SHOWING! Offering faith formation and opportunities to encounter Christ weekly are at the heart of who we are. Finally, as I met with the St. Louis Catholic Parent Guild this week, and discussed the different committees, their purpose, and activities, the common theme is supporting the students. What a beautiful example of sharing our gifts with others. We are one body, with many gifts. Thank you for sharing them with us.
Go Saints Forever!
