Happy Birthday SLES Yard Art

Join in the 70th celebration fun!  Many of you have woken up to find that you have been "celebrated" by St. Luke's.  Our committee is working hard to celebrate as many families as possible by Kaleidoscope.  You may wake up in the morning to find your own personal birthday cake in your front yard.  A link will be provided via BidPal as it circulates through each family.  Donations are optional.  $50 is the recommended amount, but all donations are appreciated.  The kids love moving these birthday decorations around in the evening!

Karen Erfurth, Early Childhood Teacher

PK3 teacher, Karen Erfurth, has always loved school.  A native of San Antonio, she began her college education at San Antonio College in the Child Development Department, where she developed a passion for this field of study and found her calling in life.  She earned a B.A. and M.A. from the University of the Incarnate Word.  Upon graduation, Karen worked at their Child Development Center before joining St. Luke's to head the two-year-old program.  As a long-time faculty member, Karen has dedicated her life to the education and nurturing of St. Luke's youngest students.  Last year, she was recognized for her 30 years of service at SLES with a tree in her honor on the south lawn.  

Outside the classroom, volunteer service has been an important part of Karen's life for many years. She's a regular volunteer at the Child Life Department of the Methodist Children's Hospital and a facilitator at the Children's Bereavement Center of South Texas.  On weekends, you can find Karen volunteering at Morgan's Wonderland, a service for which she was awarded the President's Volunteer Service Award in 2016.  

What does Ms. Erfurth love about SLES?: 
"I love the sense of faith, community, and family.  The St. Luke's Way is the thread that holds us all together in a common bond."
