SLES Scholars Attend Global Competition

Eight of our SLES Tigers will be competing in the 2019 Global Rounds of the World Scholar's Cup in The Netherlands beginning July 20th. Having qualified at the regional contest in Houston, they will now face off against over 2,000 students representing 45 different nations. 
Dear Parents and Friends of St. Luke’s,

It is a great joy to return to St. Luke’s from which I graduated in 1970 to serve as the Interim Head of School.  For over thirty five years, I have been fortunate to lead and serve extraordinary Episcopal schools around the nation, and passionately believe in the unique educational environment and culture of this vibrant school tradition of which St. Luke’s is an integral part.  Our tradition is one which seeks to deeply cultivate the life of the mind, body, and spirit of each student entrusted to our care, a tradition which embodies excellence, challenge, and nurture.  We want every child to flourish as he or she discerns their own unique gifts and talents in an environment where each child is known, loved, and supported.  St. Luke’s enjoys a proud and distinguished legacy in San Antonio, and beyond, which provides a strong foundation for our future growth.

My wife Cindy and I greatly appreciate the warm welcomes we have received and eagerly look forward to the upcoming year to meeting with many more of you. In the upcoming months, I will be working with the board of trustees, faculty, parents, alumni, and the many friends and supporters of our school as we together craft a strong and substantive vision to lead St. Luke’s for the next 70+ years.

Clear and timely school communication is very important to me.  Please feel free to contact me with your thoughts and ideas.

Dr. James Hamner
