Annual Shark Run/Walk
The St. Louis Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) sponsored the Third-Annual Shark Run/Walk on Friday, September 26, 2014 from 1:00-2:30 at the St. Louis High School track. Prior to the race all St. Louis elementary students grades K-5 collected pledges and sponsors from the community for each lap they ran or walked during the event. Joining us on the day of the fundraiser were mascots from local businesses, such as Ronald McDonald, Big Boy, the St. Louis Shark, Lou E. Loon from the Great Lakes Loons, and the buffalo from Buffalo Wild Wings. Also sharing in the excitement were athletes from Central Michigan University, as well as various School Board members and retired teachers. This year's Run/Walk raised the greatest dollar amount in the event's history totaling over $10,000. All money collected will be utilized toward providing field trips, assemblies, technology, and classroom supplies for all elementary students. Not only was the event a success by providing needs for our elementary buildings, but it was also a beautiful day where students and the community joined together to enjoy physical fitness. The PTO would like to thank the community and surrounding businesses for their continued support of St. Louis Elementary students. We look forward to another great Run/Walk next year!
Annual Blood Drive
On October 20th, 2014 the Anatomy & Physiology Class at St. Louis High School organized the annual St. Louis Blood Drive. During this event we collected 74 pints of blood from 90 students, staff and community members. With this blood, the American Red Cross has the ability to save 222 lives.
We are well on our way to reaching our goal; therefore one student will be in the running for a $1000 scholarship. Thank you for continuing to support this great cause! We are already preparing to have another successful blood drive in the spring of 2015.
Together we Can, Together we Do!
Our theme for parents, staff, and students of St. Louis Public Schools for the 2014-15 school year is: “Together we Can, Together we Do!” It takes all of us working together to support our children and continue to have such a fine upstanding community.
We will be celebrating the successes and building upon them to be a GREAT district for our community! We can raise student achievement; we can engage parents in the learning process; and, we can build community partnerships that support student achievement that last a lifetime.
“Together we Can, Together we Do!”
