We’re back in school! Alleluia!!  It was wonderful seeing everyone’s smiling face on Tuesday morning. It was good to have a break, but it’s also good to be back.  Hope your Christmas season was filled with peace and joy. Welcome to 2016, and thank you to those of you who remembered our staff members with Christmas cards and gifts.  Your generosity is greatly appreciated.


How many of you see the New Year as a time to start anew, eat a bit healthier, drink more water, set time aside to pray each day? At STBCS, we know our students can be exceptional. And they have risen to our expectations time and again. We are so pleased with them this year. We want to make sure it continues.
How can you help? Continue to talk to your children about the importance of always being their best self and doing what they know is right. Also check in with them in the evening to see how school is going. Listen to them and help them “walk in the way of the Lord”.

We are Peacemakers. We are respectful in actions and words to God, self, others, and all creation.


We welcome Vincent Bartholomew, Michael Boyle, and Joseph McMurran, seniors at St. Louis University High School; and Samuel Krebs and Quintin Potthest, seniors at Mater Dei High School in Breese, Illinois.  All are here to do their Senior Service Projects at our school.  While they are here, they will assist teachers and have opportunities to work with students.  We are glad they chose our school and grateful to all of them for their service to us.
