Dear St. Louis Families,
We are quickly reaching the end of the school year. The last day of school is June 4th. It has been emotional to not have our end of the year celebrations in our buildings and not be able to have closure with our students.
We are seeking feedback from our families on distance learning. Please take a few minutes to fill out the below survey. We will use this information to improve our practice in areas of weakness and celebrate our strengths.
The graduation date has been set for June 18th. There are a few alternative plans and the plan we implement will be based on the social distancing guidelines around that date.
Please see the below flyer for student personal items pick up. Please return district issued items at that time. If you have any questions you can contact your building principal.
Nobody could have predicted the COVID-19, yet we need to continue to move forward. All of our students' hopes and dreams are still attainable. St. Louis Public Schools will continue to educate and support our students to assist them in attaining those dreams. Regardless of the situation we face, you can trust the St. Louis staff will work tirelessly to put a plan in place to support our students. We cannot at this time tell you what next year may look like, but what we can tell you is that we will be here. We will continue to take pride in educating the youth of our district. We will stay SHARK STRONG!
See you in the fall!
Please take the time to complete the following survey. We would like parent feedback on distance learning.

FFA State Degree Recipients
The State FFA Degree is the highest honor a State FFA Association can bestow upon its members. To qualify for this degree, members must have been enrolled in agricultural education for at least two years and complete 360 hours of school-based agricultural education. They must also have a productive Supervised Agricultural Experience, which is conducted outside of school where they have invested an additional 300 hours. Members must have also demonstrated their leadership abilities through a speech, demonstration of parliamentary procedure, and serve as a committee member or as a chapter officer. FFA Members who receive this award have completed a minimum of 25 service hours and have a satisfactory academic record verified by the school administration. The Michigan State FFA Degree is also counted by Michigan State University for six general education credits and can be applied to any degree track at MSU. This year’s recipients are Kassidy Acker, Corban Allen, Michael Hrabal, Taylor Marr, and Jaden Simmons.
St. Louis Students Assist in the Need for Blood DonationsAnatomy and Physiology students successfully hosted two blood drives this year through Michigan Blood and collected 180 pints of blood from staff, students and community members. The students worked hard to recruit donors, get food donations from local businesses and organized all aspects of the day. They did an amazing job!

Little Free Library
Take a Book ~ Share a Book
You may have noticed a new addition outside of Carrie Knause! We now have our own little free library! One of our 2nd graders in Mrs. Jenkin's class thought this would be a great addition to our school. Her and her classmates then pursued a grant through the Youth Advisory Council with the Gratiot Community Foundation to secure the funds for this project! Please feel free to grab a book when your child needs something to read or swap us books after your child has finished reading one of their books!
Digital All-State Athlete Display
Please check out our new interactive touch screen display just outside the gym for All-State athletes at SLHS! All you have to do is walk up and touch the display to interact with it. This is an ongoing project by some of our business students and we are working to get it updated and current. If you have additions to this site, please email Mr. Hemker. Also, for most of the athletes we had to scan in old yearbook photos so if you have an updated photo of yourself, please send it on as well. Check out the video in the recent Shark Scene article to see it in action. You can also view the site online.
Schools of Choice
Schools in Gratiot and Isabella counties participate in a cross-district Schools of Choice Program. Parents can consider a school that best fits their child's individual needs. Schools of Choice applications must be completed and submitted to the Gratiot-Isabella Region Education Service District. Check out the Schools of Choice brochure for more information.
