UNIVERSITY CAMPUS FACULTY AND STAFF VISIT JAPONICA CLASSROOMS
Originally, we arranged for teachers from the University Campus to come visit classrooms on Japonica as an opportunity to collaborate with colleagues across divisions. What happened was much more. One teacher shared this comment about two colleagues after visiting a K2 class, "I heard someone say that herding two-year-olds is like herding a bunch of ants, but these two ladies handle the stress of 10 two-year-olds with ease. I believe that God has a place for everyone to shine, and these two ladies are brilliant diamonds!" The teachers that have visited have been energized and so impressed with the foundation and ground work laid in the early years.

JEREMIAH JACKSON FEATURED IN ACCESS MAGAZINE'S OCTOBER ISSUE AND DISCUSSES WHY ST. LUKE'S IS MORE THAN A SCHOOL
Jeremiah told his story, for the first time, to Access Magazine. He mentions that St. Luke's is "MORE" than a school for him. "The teachers were unbelievable and always willing to help me succeed. Going to a small school allowed for closer relationships with teachers and more playing time." He says if he had it to do all over again, he would do it the same way! From a Wildcat to an Angel, but ALWAYS a WILDCAT!
Immediately after graduation, Jeremiah left to play baseball in Arizona and then Utah. After being gone 4-months, Jeremiah returned home for "off-season." Within 1-day of being home, Jeremiah came to watch his alma mater, the Wildcat's, second home game on the "HOME" field. He was amazed at how much progress the school has made in such a short time. He said, "This is so awesome." And that's why we say "Once a Wildcat, Always a Wildcat."
SCHOOL CALENDAR
SPOTLIGHT
We have our first winner for the Music Class "Golden Microphone". Ms. Craig's 4th grade class has won! They received the microphone this week for earning the most points in music class this quarter. (1-5 grades) Points are earned by behavior, participation, etc. Ms. Brackin's class came in 2nd, Mrs. Phillips class in 3rd and Mrs. Ford's class in 4th! I think it is so fun to see all the different grade levels competing against each other. Mrs. Craig's class will keep the microphone until the next quarter, then surrender it to the class who has the most points again. Maybe they will get to keep it! So congratulations Ms. Craig's class!
