From the Office of the Principal,


If you have not been receiving school reach calls for school closings, late starts and other announcements, you need to contact Mrs. Hynes and let her know. If you changed phone numbers or would like a phone added, please let her know.

The Excel Edge ACT Prep class is in session. All juniors were sent information in December. It is our largest class in years. Thank you for signing up.

The Fathers’ Club Super Bowl party is Sunday, February 7, 2016. Doors open at 1:00. Food, drinks and game are included. The cost is $25 per person. A flyer was sent home in January. Refer to the flyer for more information or call me at STL.

STL will hold the IHSA wrestling regional championship on Saturday, February 6. The Fathers’ Club will be working the concession stand. If you are able to help out, contact the Fathers’ Club.

The Mother-Son Dance is Saturday, February 13. Check the website for more details. Money needs to be in by Monday, February 1, 2016. The cost is $60 a couple. Each additional son is $25. It is a wonderful time to spend with your son. Time you will never forget. To enjoy the evening even more, have him leave his cell phone at home or put it in your purse before the dance. If I see students texting or using their phones I will take them and give them back to them at the end of the evening. This is a time for Mon and son. Not cellphones.  

On Sunday, February 28, we will celebrate mass with the class of 2020. A breakfast will follow in the cafeteria.

The STL Hockey team will be having a Candlelight Bowl Fundraiser on February 26, 2016 at Arena Lanes in Oak Lawn.  For more information and/or to buy tickets, please contact a hockey team players or call Jeri Roth at 708-598-7574.  If you cannot come out to bowl, please consider making a donation to help defray the cost of the fundraiser and send the team to a tournament in the fall.
