EXTRA MILE WISH LIST
EXTRA MILE WISH LIST
Administration has met with our faculty, and at their request, we are implementing a St. Luke’s "Extra Mile Wish List" that will have an ongoing list of items that will help us “go the extra mile.” As items are received, we will mark them off and add a new one.

In each paw prints, we will include a few of the items on our list and we will update each publication. If you have the means or skills to help fulfill a wish, please contact Diane McCleery before purchasing to ensure that the wish has not been fulfilled. Simply email dmccleery@stlukesmobile.com. Thank you in advance for any wish that you can help with. We appreciate our school family!
