an Open House. We are especially proud of our Elementary
program, grades 3-5. This age group develops independent working
skills and higher-level thinking and processing skills that set them up
for success in middle school and beyond.
The elementary grades (3-5) are the underpinning for
comprehension, research and application of concepts. During the
elementary grades, your child’s educational competencies are further
developed.

A Simple Note makes a Difference!
During Catholic schools week we ask our scholars to write thank
you notes to our community. While these notes are being written
and mailed, we often wonder does anyone really see these notes or
does it really make a difference. The answer to this questions is
YES! Our 5th grade class wrote a note of thanks to - Keep
Englewood Beautiful commissioners during Catholic schools
Week. We received a wonderful reply from the commissioners of
the committee. They were very touched by the letters they received
and posted Robert Young’s letter on their Facebook page. Thank
you Robert for representing St. Louis in such a positive light!
