Our 4th Annual Trunk or Treat takes place in less than two weeks on Halloween. If you will be decorating your trunks and would like to reserve a parking space, please don’t forget to sign up HERE. There will be prizes for the 4 best trunks – one of them for the best Christian themed trunk.
With November right around the corner please remember these important events coming up at St. Louise School:
“All Saints’ Day”. You can find more information about “All Saints’ Day HERE. A weird pop up comes up asking for money before you get to the page. We will have our All-Saints’ Day Mass at 9am on Wednesday, November 1st, 2023. All families are invited to attend.
Thursday, November 2, is All Souls’ Day. All Souls Day is a holy day set aside for honoring the dead. Find out more about All Souls’ Day HERE.
- Friday, November 10, is Veterans Day. This year, we will be honoring our Veterans with the entire school by holding an outdoor assembly by the Flagpole at 8:30am. All families and Veterans are invited and watch the bulletin and red envelope in the coming weeks to sign up for us to send an invitation to any special Veterans in your family.
Open House and Admissions Season
While it seems like we just started the school year, we are actually already busily preparing for the 2024-2025 Admissions Season! Even though we employ many advertising avenues, when it comes down to it, year-after-year, our best promotional product is YOU, the current school parent!
When we ask prospective new school parents how they heard about St. Louise, the most popular answer is, "My neighbor/friend/co-worker/ is a member of the St. Louise community and (they don’t attend St. Louise, their child does) said we should check it out." It is with that reality that we have a few incentives to encourage our current school parents to continue to market St. Louise School to those you know with children approaching the ages of 4-14.
Our first incentive is to provide one-month's free tuition (at our in-parish one-child rate) to a school family who refers a new family that chooses to enroll at St. Louise. When new families apply for admission, they can choose how they heard about St. Louise and if your name is listed as the referral-source, you get that free tuition (valued at over $833 )!
Another incentive is tied to our Open Houses. We hold two in-person Open Houses during the admissions season. We suggest that current school parents not only encourage a prospective new school parent to schedule an in person tour, but that they also sign up for an Open House which they can do online HERE. When prospective families sign up for the Open House, they again have the opportunity to let us know how they heard about St. Louise. If they list you as their referral to the Open House, and they attend, you will receive a $10 Starbucks card.
Our first Open House is Thursday, November 9, from 6:00-7:30PM. Please consider asking your neighbor/friend/co-worker with an upcoming Pre-K to 8th grade student to attend the Open House with you. Our second Open House will be on January 25.
We hope that you will take some time over the coming days to spread the word and share your family’s St. Louise story. With all of you and your continued support we will continue to welcome more great families while growing our enrollment.
