Thank you: We cannot thank our parents and community members enough for all of your support with your children during this time. We wanted to share with you some words of thanks and express our gratitude to many people who play a pivotal role in helping to keep our school running smoothly and your children safe.
Catholic School Advisory Council: Our thanks are also extended to St. Luke School Council members, under the leadership of Ms. Ana Freitas (Co-Chair) and Mrs. Jennifer McDonald (Co-Chair), who have worked so hard to enrich our school. Our school council commitment, creative ideas, and guidance are very much appreciated.
To our Bus Drivers: At St. Luke School, half of our students ride our buses. We would like to THANK YOU for getting our students to us, and home safely, each and every day. Without you, our students could not get to us and our community would not be as rich as it is.
To our Strong Start Volunteers: Reading is a fundamental skill for all of us and we are so appreciative of the hours that you spend with our youngest students, practicing reading skills and other fundamentals. Our kids are successful because of your help! THANK YOU!
To our Nutrition for Learning Volunteer Mrs. Marg Weiss: When children are hungry, it is very difficult for them to learn. We would like to THANK YOU for the countless hours you spend packing snack bags, sorting food items and arranging food bins deliveries so that our students have enough food to eat! THANK YOU!
Once again, we thank students, parents and staff for all you have done to allow us to have this successful year. We couldn’t have done it without you! In closing, we would like to wish you and your family, a safe and happy summer, filled with God’s blessings of peace, health, and happiness!
Ms. Rosemary Kavanagh
