Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I’m Kara Jamison and have the pleasure to be the president of the
parent organization known as SLS Home & School Association.


My children are in Kindergarten and 6th grade. Wilson began SLS in the 2nd grade and Brody started in JK. I have had the opportunity to be involved
in a lot of different ways and realize that community is the pillar of this awesome school!

Home & School is a vital support system that provides St. Louis School with the helping hands and donations needed for a successful year. These efforts keep operational costs of the school down, which translates to lower tuition for our families and many different opportunities for us to be involved in our children’s faith formation and education. Our goal this year is to help all parents find areas they can comfortably be involved, as we all have different talents and gifts to share. We will have several Home & School meetings throughout the year to discuss upcoming events and hear about updates and reports on progress of our school. We will also have Q&A opportunities as well as occasional speakers on hot topics. These meetings are a great way to connect, stay informed, and find ways you may be able to help out. Mark your calendars for the first H&S meeting on Tues, Aug 27th, 6:30-7:30 pm in the Clunan Center. A few of our biggest fundraising events include: Fall Fundraiser, Book Fair, H&S Auction, and Cardinal 5K.  Please email me or one of our team members if you have suggestions, ideas, or questions about how to get involved. I’m so excited to get the year rolling and I look forward to working with all of you!

My name is Elizabeth Brame

and I am the School Counselor for grades 5-8 at St. Louis Catholic School. I graduated from the University of Memphis with a Masters in School Counseling and started my career with the Jubilee Catholic Schools. I am so excited to continue to serve in the Memphis community where I grew up.

Summer Reading Requirements


Reading is a fundamental skill in the success of our students. It is important for the students to practice and enforce these skills throughout the year, including summertime. Each student entering grades one through eight will have age appropriate summer reading requirements.


Please refer to the links below for current summer reading requirements.

Summer Math Requirements


Student success in math is linked to regular practice in the grade level skills. Each student entering grades two through eight will have summer IXL math requirements. Students may access their IXL account here. This summertime practice proves very beneficial to the students’ retention of math facts.
