Spirit Wear Reminders
On spirit wear days, students may wear any St. Luke shirt, including sports jerseys and Walk-a-Thon t-shirts. Shorts may be worn during the summer uniform period, but they must be Bermuda length, reaching approximately 1 inch above the knee. Jeans and sweat/track pants are also acceptable, but absolutely no leggings allowed. Sandals with a back (no flip flops), and athletic shoes are acceptable if properly laced. Shoes worn should be safe, practical, and age appropriate.  In addition, no show socks may be worn but should match in color.
First Mass of the New School Year
Please join us as we celebrate our first Mass of the new school year on Wednesday, September 4 at 8:30 am in the Church. The eighth grade students will lead the celebration and all are welcome to attend.
Hot Lunch Volunteers Needed
Please sign up for one or several hot lunches during the school year. It's a fun way to see your children during school and meet other parents. Six volunteers are needed for each lunch but any and all help is greatly appreciated. The first hot lunch is next Friday, August 30th. Click here to sign up. Just a reminder that you must have completed the VIRTUS/Protecting God's Children training in order to volunteer.
