Panama Trip ~ Spanish Club
The St. Louis High School Spanish Club would like to thank the businesses, organizations, and individuals from the local communities that supported our recent trip to Panama. Your support during our fundraisers over the past two years has been overwhelming. 33 students and 6 adults spent 9 days traveling throughout Panama while learning about the culture, history, geography, and language of a beautiful country. The club would like to extend its most sincere gracias to everybody for helping cultivate such an incredible and educational experience for our youth. Thanks for helping our small town kids do big things! Check out our highlight video!

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.

On average, only 6% of FFA members earn their state degree.
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.
