The foundation exists solely for the purpose of raising money for the purchase of technology and other educational items for the St. Louis Public Schools. Purchased technology will be used directly by teachers and students and will help the teachers provide the highest quality education.
Make a purchase from Amazon.com through the search form here (at the bottom of the page) and the St. Louis Sharks Technology Foundation will receive up to 20% of your purchase price! Money raised will be used to purchase technology for our school.
With the footbridge being closed for the winter, we want to make sure everyone knows that there is shuttle service to and from the High School and Middle School in both the morning before school and after school. If you have any questions you can call the bus garage or the school offices.
SLHS Blood Drive
On October 22nd, 2015 the Anatomy & Physiology Class at St. Louis High School organized the annual St. Louis Blood Drive. We would like to personally thank everyone involved for your participation and generous donations. During this event we collected 67 pints of blood from 81 students, staff and community members. With this blood, the American Red Cross has the ability to service 201 lives in need.
We are well on our way to reaching our goal; therefore one student will be in the running for a $2000 scholarship. Thank you for continuing to support this great cause. We are already preparing to have another successful blood drive in the spring of 2016.
We can’t thank you enough for all of the support you gave us during this event.

SLHS Shark Football ~ “Thank You”
Through the recent generosity of family and friends of St. Louis High School football players, the Sharks were able to purchase the latest technology in the prevention of football related injuries. The acquisition of the inflatable Sharkman football tackling dummies and tubes will provide significant reductions in tackling related injuries allowing the team coaches to safely teach proper tackling techniques. (see the Sharkman tackling videos below). So a big “thank you” from all of the Varsity and JV football players’ to their parents, families, and friends who helped make this sport significantly safer for us. Go Sharks!
Shark Run Walk
This year’s Run Walk event will be held in memory of Kathy Wiles. The event is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 5th from 1:00-2:30 at the high school track. For those of you that did not know Kathy, she was a SLPS school board member that passed away unexpectedly this summer. She was a huge supporter of PTO and attended Run Walk events in the past. She always enjoyed seeing her “little Sharks” walking/running together on the track. She was also very instrumental in organizing a backpack drive to ensure that all students had a backpack (filled with school supplies) if they needed one. It was not uncommon to see her smiling face walking through the halls popping in and out of classrooms during fall open houses. She helped serve food at last year’s 1st Annual Kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast and she thought the Mackinaw trip for 4th graders was a wonderful opportunity. She was proud to be a St. Louis Shark and we know she would be proud of us working together to raise money for our school. Her favorite color was purple so we will all be wearing purple t-shirts this year. The balloons released at this year’s event will also be purple. Each participant will be given a sticker to wear with a flower on it (Mrs. Wiles really loved flowers and gardening too) that reads, “In Memory of Kathy Wiles.” This fundraiser helps provide guest speakers, field trips, playground equipment, technology, and supplies for our elementary students. We hope you'll consider supporting us this year!
