School Notes

  • For more than 140 years, Holy Savior Catholic School has been devoted to providing students with the academically-excellent, God-loving foundation needed to become engaged citizens and faithful disciples of Christ.
  • Bishop Fabre said, "to love as God loves, we must see as God sees." This statement embodies what we are called to do as Christians and our calling at Holy Savior as ministers of Christ through Catholic education. The mission of our school calls for us to see the worth of every student, parent, and teacher, and to encounter them the way Christ would. By doing this, we spread God`s love throughout our community. Therefore, we strive to live out our mission this year through our 2020-2021 theme: "Love as God loves."
  • Even during a year which is so different from any other, our school has embraced this theme, continuing to encounter Christ through others. The need for truly encountering others has fueled our commitment to being present on our campus in a way that is safe and fosters growth.
  • Within our school, eucharistic adoration is made available to all classes in the school chapel throughout the school day once each month. Students continue to attend weekly Mass and receive religious instruction daily. The Christian Leadership Club has also formed on our campus, giving students the opportunity to perform "above-and-beyond" service projects within our school and community. Our teachers have fully embraced and built upon this year`s theme in their own unique ways in each classroom. In November, our 4-H Club held a canned food drive to collect non-perishable items which were used to create Thanksgiving baskets for the less fortunate in our community. We have been blessed to have the support and presence of our local priests with our children throughout this unusual year.
  • Despite changes made to ensure COVID safety in the classroom, the pursuit of academic excellence has not been compromised. Our dedicated teachers continue to use various innovative teaching strategies and integrate technology through use of classroom computers, Promethean ActivBoards, and our 1:1 Chromebook Program in 1st through 5th grade. Holy Savior offers several enrichment classes, including technology, music, and library, all of which have found innovative ways to safely continue--including library-on-a-cart and outdoor band classes. Our nursery students continue to grow as learners through a curriculum which focuses on the development of reading, math, science, art, and self-help skills, as well as fine and gross motor skills.
  • Holy Savior is made up of all those who have been a part of it since 1879. We are grateful for the support and dedication of those who believe in Catholic education. It is because of you--and God`s grace--that Holy Savior will continue to create self-motivated, lifelong learners who positively impact their families, their communities, their country, the church, and the world.

Holy Savior, although in a small town, is still impressive. The teachers have experience with their positions, and there is a family atmosphere within the school. Holy Savior's campus is composed of a large main building, a gymnasium, a new cafeteria, and covered walkways connecting them all. There is also close access to the church and the Lockport baseball field. There are art classes, a computer lab, a library, a prayer room, and a band room. There are many athletic programs including basketball, softball, volleyball, soccer, and cheerleading. The school band and choir programs teach the important basics of music and more. Holy Savior has many clubs including Caritas, 4-H, Student Council, and a Beta Club. HSCS is the only school in the Diocese of Houma Thibodaux to be recognized as a National Junior Beta School of Distinction for their Beta Club. The faculty members are faith-filled people who genuinely care about each child. I would strongly recommend Holy Savior to anyone.
