Principal Kathleen McNutt
A warm welcome to all of you as I begin my first year as principal of St. Louis Catholic School. I feel truly blessed to have the opportunity to serve in the parish and school that I consider home. As an alumnus of St. Louis School, I am intimately connected to its 58-year history and to the many students, families and dedicated staff who came before us. St. Louis has a long, rich tradition and is a perfect example of what Catholic education should be. As a Catholic community, we must strive to live our lives as Christ has shown us. Weekly Masses, daily religion instruction, assemblies, retreats, social justice projects and various other activities help our students grow spiritually each day and learn how to be the light of Christ to others.
The mission of St. Louis School is “Rooted in Faith, Growing in Christ”, providing a Christ-centered education that addresses the moral, emotional, physical, spiritual and intellectual development of every student in our school. The holistic formation of children has been the very founding principle of Catholic education since its dawn in our country. Elizabeth Ann Seton, John Neumann and so many other great men and women have championed Catholic education, making it a system that strives to meet the spiritual and academic needs of everyone. Catholic schools have always been the standard of quality education, and that quality is what we strive for day in and day out at St. Louis. The faculty and staff, parents, priests, administration and our own Poor Clare sisters continually support the students in our mission through their tireless efforts, prayers, and sacrifices.
I am truly grateful for the sacrifices that each of you has made as you entrust your children to our care. We take this responsibility very seriously, and we look forward to providing your children with a safe, academically challenging and nurturing environment where they will reach their full potential in Christ. I will be praying for each of you throughout this school year and ask that you keep me and my family in your prayers as well.
