Parent Resources

Moodle

Moodle is an e-learning, course management system which provides teachers the opportunity to share resources with and administer online assignments to their students. All STM classroom teachers use Moodle for managing course content. Many clubs, organizations and athletic teams use Moodle as well.

Additional Moodle courses include:

  • Grade Level Courses (i.e. Freshmen, Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors): contains vital information from grade level counselors and administrators related to standardized testing, tutoring, college applications, etc.
  • Announcements: contains day-to-day announcements related to events taking place on campus.
  • Important Information: contains information related to technology and academics including an archive of past topics of interest.

The STUDENT’S USERNAME AND PASSWORD is used by BOTH student and parent for accessing Moodle resources. Unlike Edline, Moodle does not provide separate login accounts for parents. Any parent interested in viewing his/her child’s Moodle course pages, should obtain the username and password from his/her child. A parent logging into Moodle during the school day will NOT prevent the student from doing the same. Happy Moodling Parents!

Asbestos Update

According to the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA), each school system must notify the public of inspections, response actions, periodic surveillance and re-inspection activities on an annual basis.

This is to inform you that AHERA Compliance Management Plans are available for public inspection in either the principal’s or coordinator’s office of each school site in the Diocese of Lafayette School System. These documents include the Inspection Reports, Re-inspection Reports and the Management Plan. Requests to view these may made Monday - Friday during regular school hours.

Inspections of Asbestos Containing Material (ACM) are made by each school every six (6) months. Every three (3) years, re-inspection is conducted by a Certified Asbestos Inspector/Management Planner.

Citizens for Educational Choice (CEC)

The regular session of the 2014 session of the Louisiana Legislature recently ended.  Our school is a member of Citizens for Educational Choice (CEC).  We need to participate in an electronic advocacy tool designed to help parents of nonpublic school students connect with and influence their state legislators.  Parents in our schools should sign up for this tool right away in order to have your voice heard at the State Capitol in Baton Rouge.  Please register at the CEC website www#louisianacec#org.

The first time you do this, the system will ask you to fill out a user profile with your name, street address, city, state, zip code, and email address.  The system needs your zip code in order to determine your local legislators.  The system will then electronically address the email you will be sending to them.  Your name and address will appear at the bottom of the email.  The Privacy Policy on the website clearly notes that none of your information will be given to any other entity, either by CEC or the software vendor.

This tool is called Voter Voice and is very easy to use.  Once you have registered on the CEC website you will receive Legislative Alerts from CEC's lobbyist, Danny Loar, during the legislative session.  The alert will ask you to contact your local legislator (Senator or Representative), which you will do by clicking on an electronic link.

It is very important that the legislator reading the email know that you actually live in his or her district.  They know through their campaign work what streets are in their district.  The email will look like it came directly from you, thereby maximizing its impact on the legislator.  CEC's name will not be shown on the email the legislator receives from you.

You will only receive three of the action alerts per legislative session.  Legislators want to hear from you.  The entire email process will only take you 5 minutes, and you will be working effectively at increasing the monies your school receives from the State (by increasing the Required Services funding), as well as defeating bad bills that would hurt our schools and your children.

Please join CEC's Voter Voice advocacy network by registering at www.louisianacec.org.  It will only take you a few minutes!
