In recent weeks, we had the opportunity to have our Top Ten Tea. The evening was spent paying homage to the ten best academic achieving students from SLHS' graduating class. Valedictorian, Zachary Stedman, Salutatorian, Casey Monroe, and the remaining students in order of GPA, Amanda Maxon, Kalee Teeter, Hayley Lerg, CJ Oswald, Cailin Mikek, Jarred Bott, Emily Willett, and Tricia Cole.
On May 15th, we honored the many, many students earning scholarships, department awards and memorial award recognition at our traditional Evening of Excellence. The event was attended by hundreds, including staff, special presenters and the community at large. It is always very special and appropriate to recognize the great work done by so many of our students. It is a very enjoyable evening for all.
Friday, May 17th, we had our traditional "Movin on Up" assembly. We shared a volleyball match where staff and students could make a donation to the Gratiot County Child Advocacy Group. Our kids and parent/guardians continue to be giving and gracious people. We also had our Student Council speeches and voting for next year's council. Then we had the seniors move out of the bleachers and moved the juniors, sophomores, freshman and incoming eighth graders to their spots in our stands. A warm welcome was given to the freshmen of the class of 2017.
We have had our senior breakfast and practice for graduation. This Thursday, at 7:00 PM, we will honor the graduating class of St. Louis High School with all the Pomp and Circumstance they can handle. It is a very joyous occasion, as well as an emotionally charged night as our graduates move to the next level and challenges of their lives. This is the culmination of many years of dedication and hard work by students and staff. The years have gone by so quickly.

Mrs. Beery ~ Distinguished Chemistry Teacher
I also had the privilege to see the presentation Mrs. Beery helped to facilitate when her AP Chemistry students did a Bill Nye, the Science Guy, kind of show for the students at Nikkari Elementary School. Mrs. Beery continues to push her students to develop a solid knowledge, enthusiastic appreciation and willing sharing of their advanced understanding of Chemistry. As the principal of St. Louis High School, I want to thank Sarah Beery, again, for her dedication to the improving academic culture of our school. This recent honor bestowed upon her by the ACS was well deserved and additional evidence of the fact that we have great teachers in our school. I am thrilled to be able to work with this staff. I know the students of our school are the direct beneficiaries. Mrs. Beery is an important part of what we hope to bring to all students in hopes of meeting our mission and vision for all kids.
