The 2013/2014 school year is off to a great start. Even before the first day there was good news coming from Clarksville Elementary. The school won approval for an additional fifth grade teacher to reduce the number of students in each class. Everyone is eager for the arrival of the new teacher.

On opening day, St. Louis School had 518 students who will focus this year on service to the community, STEM education and enhanced educational tools.

The summer months were busy at St. Louis parish, which is in the process of building a parish activity center that will house a new state-of-the-art school gymnasium and offices. Students, faculty and staff are excited to watch this project coming to life. They are learning to be patient and flexible as construction continues.

St. Louis School is celebrating another milestone this year. This is its 90th year since opening in 1923. An Alumni Mass and Communion Breakfast will be held on Oct. 1. All alumni are encouraged to spread the word and join in the celebration.

An amazingly talented string quartet welcomed students on the first day of school at Clarksville Middle. It isn't every day that students are serenaded by live music. Clarksville is blessed with great musical talent.
