Today we will have the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary Mass led by 6B. We ask that students bring a rosary to the Mass as we will pray a decade of the Rosary before Mass. All parents and guests are invited to our special Mass which begins at 8:45am.
The Spaghetti Feed last Saturday was a great success! Thank you to all the families that were able to attend the Spaghetti Feed to help support our sister parish, St. Anne in Haiti as well as New Bethlehem Programs. We had over 225 people attend, and it was great to see the St. Louise School and Parish staff serve spaghetti and sell raffle tickets for this special cause. We raised about $3,700 and we will equally give half to St. Anne du Hyacinthe in Haiti and the New Bethlehem Programs.
Halloween Costume Guidelines
All students at St. Louise are allowed to come to school on Tuesday, October 31, wearing a Halloween costume.
When helping your child decide what his/her costume will be, please take into account these "Fun Dress Day" guidelines:
- Costumes must be appropriate for an elementary school and more importantly, a Catholic elementary school; therefore, themes or dress that are disrespectful and/or too "adult" need to stay home. This includes, but is not limited to:
- No dressing up as the opposite sex.
- No costume with a crude sense of humor.
- Violent themes are not allowed. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Bloody makeup;
- Weapons (including fake ones);
- Costumes depicting devils or vampires;
- Costumes depicting violent characters such as Scream, Freddy Krueger, It/Pennywise, Dementor, etc.
- Mr. Fuerte has the final decision on which costumes are inappropriate. You may ask him, if you wonder if your child's costume will be considered appropriate or not. Or simpler yet - if you have to wonder...then the answer probably is you should choose another costume. ;-)
- Thanks for keeping the "Happy" in "Happy Halloween!" by making this a fun day with no hassles.
- Should your kiddos arrive at school dressed as one of the more than 10,000 saints recognized by the Catholic church, they should stop by Mr. Fuerte’s office to pick up a special treat!
