Dear parents,

How fortunate we are that we rarely have to discipline a student for making a wrong choice.  Please know that if and when this does occur, a team of Administrators will always investigate and do our due diligence before determining if disciplinary action is necessary. As usual, we will always do everything possible to maintain the culture expected at St. Luke's.  It is absolutely important that the St. Luke's family trusts that their school is normally aware of most situations and are quickly taking action when needed.  Remember, rumor and gossip is the number one obstacle we face in schools today. These two poor habits undermine much of what we are trying to accomplish. It makes it very difficult to know what to believe.

Also, it is with the most deepest regret that I tell you Coach Kantonio Davis will be leaving St. Luke's at the conclusion of this academic year.  Coach Davis's wife has accepted a job in Chattanooga, Tennessee with Blue Cross and Blue Shield and he will be joining her there at the end of the year.  He informed his team this past Tuesday. This is a very large loss for our school and he will be sorely missed. We will begin a search immediately.

Please be aware that we are continuing to assess our emergency procedures, including lockdown and securing our campuses throughout the day. We have had a number of professionals walk both campuses to offer suggestions for improvement. We are still collecting their reports to see how we can best implement them. We will keep you as informed as possible based off what we are allowed to share.

The 2018-2019 academic calendar is attached. As I explained during the State of the School meeting in January, this year's calendar is unique. We will have an earlier start date (August 9th and 10th, half days) which will allow for an extended Christmas break. We also have a late Mardi Gras holiday and a late Spring Break. You can find a copy of the calendar on our website.

As we return to school on Monday, we will begin the last quarter of the year. Be prepared as it will go by faster than you can imagine. As always, thank you for your support.

Cash Bash is almost upon us and someone is going to win A LOT of money! 

Join us for the fun on April 21st at the newly renovated gym on the Japonica Campus.  Once again this year it is super easy to purchase tickets, either fill out the order form and return it with your payment to either Mrs. Sandy on the Lower Campus or to Student Services on the Upper Campus.

You can also purchase online via Smart Tuition,
just click on this link:

*Feel free to share the link, you don't have to be a Smart Tuition
user to buy, it is open to anyone!*
 
Remember tickets are very limited this year, and this without a doubt is going to be the best Cash Bash yet...

As we did last year the classroom, on the lower campus, that sells the most tickets receives a PIZZA PARTY and the teacher of that class will win a SPA Day! For every ticket you purchase or that is purchased through you (for yourself, family, friends, coworkers, etc). ALL of your Japonica Campus students will get credit (please make sure that the students name is one the order form). For example, if you have 2 students and you buy a ticket, grandparents purchase one ticket and a co-worker buys a ticket, both of your children will get credit for 3 tickets sold.
Likewise for the upper campus students, those who are involved in the sale of a ticket will receive an out of uniform day!  
Remember, your ticket not only enters you into the Draw Down, but it provides admission for 2 to the Cash Bash....an adult evening of food, fun, and friendship.  Information will be coming home on a regular basis....but be sure to put the date on your calendar and help us spread the word.

 

All proceeds benefit St. Luke's!
