Last week for Toys for Tots

Thanks to our past efforts, St. Thomas More is the largest contributor in the Acadiana area and we hope, with your help we can meet this goal again this year.

A Message from Our Nurse

Please try to keep your kids cognizant of the many germs and viruses that are going around. So many of our students are involved in multiple activities, clubs and sports in addition to their workload with academics, they are all so exhausted which makes them more susceptible to contracting illnesses. Remind them daily to wash their hands, use the hand sanitizer pumps around campus and cover their coughs. With flu season in full swing, stomach viruses being so prevalent and strep rearing its ugly head, the students should be extra cautious. If you have questions, please contact the school nurse, Amanda Faucheux.
