4TH GRADE GIRLS LIVING OUR MISSION STATEMENT
The 4th grade girls created the Helping Hands club after Hurricane Michael. They were able to fill 20 reusable bags with goods and deliver them to Trinity Lutheran Church in Panama City. These girls wrote a plan, met with Dr. Keesee to discuss implementation, collected items from the 4th graders, and made cards for students at a middle school that was destroyed. These girls saw a need and took action to help! We are so proud of these Wildcats!

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!
