Shout outs to Mia (7th), Madeleine (2nd), Ethan (2nd), and Lathan (1st) for modeling excellence at SLES!

Dear St. Luke’s Families,
As I was listening to the elementary level faculty discussing student shout-outs for the week, I found myself thinking about all the adult shout-outs that I wanted to share. During this year at SLES I have been amazed by the dedication of our parents and the generous volunteering of their time and talent. Every St. Luke's event is lifted by the creativity and care provided by our parents. Below are just some of the responsibilities our volunteers have undertaken during the year.
Our Trustees take seriously their responsibility to oversee school finances, to select and support the Head of School, and to hold fast to the school’s mission. They serve on committees that oversee development, safety and security, and governance matters. In addition, they are consistent and enthusiastic cheerleaders for the school.

Our Parent Council members focus on events that uplift the community, and provide parenting advice and information about the school’s programs. In addition, each of our classrooms has parent captains who distribute information about class events and help teachers with class parties.

There would be no Kaleidoscope gala or St. Luke’s Fund effort without the dedication of the volunteers who organize these events, follow through with detailed preparations, and offer encouragement and gratitude to everyone who participates. My memories of that magical evening on the hilltop last October will forever be a part of my St. Luke’s photographic album along with the smiles of the development team when the whole SLES community reached 100% participation in the St. Luke’s Fund. 
Punctuating these larger volunteer events are the wonderful Book Fair, Grandparent’s and Special Friend’s Day, Field Day, Admissions Previews and Middle School dances that benefit from the friendly and spirited participation of our parents. I have so enjoyed working alongside everyone and having opportunities to get to know you all better as we welcome our visitors, guide them through the school, check out their book purchases and cheer on our students.

A strong volunteer contingent is a sign of a healthy school where the adults model for their children what it means to contribute to the good of the whole community. There have been many times when I have overheard students say, “When I am a parent I want to volunteer in my child’s school just like my parents have done.” Believe me, they notice and remember.
Thank you to you all who have been a part of this excellent school year! This is your shout-out from your greatest admirer!
With warm regards,
Lenesa Leana
