Costume Donations

It’s a Spooktacular Report from SLS Student Council

In early October St. Louis School was able to take over approximately 50 gently used kids Halloween costumes to the Batesville Food Pantry. Later in October, the school was able to collect an additional 26 costumes. Trick or treat is long over but we will accept costumes throughout the year and hold them for the next year’s annual SLS costume drive. According to the volunteers at the Food Pantry, our donations are very much anticipated and appreciated.

Red Ribbon Week

We had a lot of fun during Red Ribbon week. As the week comes to an end, let's each take a timeout and make a pledge to ourselves, our classmates, and our teachers to be kind to one another, to make good choices and live a healthy lifestyle and always so NO to drugs.

St. Louis would like to thank the Coalition for a Drug Free Batesville, Advance NItriding Solutions, LLC, and ETC for their generous corporate donations to make our efforts possible. We would also like to thank Lance and Kelly Cook at Inter-State Studio for their creative photography efforts. The students very much appreciated it.

Please click on the link below to see the entire week's activities, along with several wonderful photos. Mrs. Wilson has put together a great summary of the week!
