Halo Highlight - Transforming Apostolic Hours with InnerView

Every year at St. Louis Catholic, we want our students to gain valuable experiences from their Apostolic Hours. This semester, we are beginning to integrate a digital platform, InnerView, within our school community to increase the impact even further and foster meaningful discussions after the service is completed. We did a soft launch in 2019 with our National Honor Society's required service hours.


InnerView allows us to see our impact as a school and as individual students in terms of hours, service types, and monetary impact value - click to see NHS' Service Impact Snapshot. It also factors in U.N. global goals. InnerView is NOT a social media platform, but it will streamline the need for paperwork to turn in and verify Apostolic Hours. We see InnerView redefining what service really means in our school and our community! See key facts here.

Student Life Reminders

1. Q3 Behavior Incentive: The class with the fewest Late to School infractions and tardies will enjoy a lunch on us at the end of the 3rd quarter!


2. PLEASE NOTE: Starting Tuesday, any student who doesn't conform to the dress code policy will receive a discipline infraction. We feel like we've given ample time to correct the following:

  • Skirt length
  • Hair length (boys)
  • Proper outerwear and shoes
  • Student IDs

**However, Monday to honor our LSU Tigers, students can enjoy a Spirit Dress day to include appropriate jeans, closed-toe shoes and either an LSU or CLEMSON shirt. Students MUST donate a minimum of $1 for this privilege. GEAUX TIGERS!


3. Attention Junior and Senior girls - Before shopping for your perfect prom dress, please know that stricter regulations will be enforced for dresses. Specifics will be sent out soon, but dresses should not have cut-outs, two pieces, extensive slits or be too form-fitting. We always want to be respectful of ourselves and represent St. Louis Catholic High School in a positive way.


4. Students will have a LATE START on Wednesday, Jan. 15, due to a faculty meeting. First period will start at 9 a.m.
