Bravo to our small but mighty St. Luke's team for bringing home 3rd place in the Shamrock Invitational Middle School Speech Tournament last weekend!

SLES 2nd graders presented Meadow Haven Horse Rescue with a donation of over seven hundred dollars this morning and received a special visit from Skittles, an Appaloosa rescued by Meadow Haven. The students raised the funds at last week's Western Expansion Day. They learned how Meadow Haven volunteers provide rehabilitation, shelter and a loving home to rescue horses and wanted their donation to help feed the 190 horses currently in the organization's care.
Congratulations to four St. Luke's students for winning awards in the San Antonio Symphony’s 2017 Paint to Music Contest! SLES 3rd graders learned about the life and work of Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser and created mixed media landscapes inspired by selections from Symphony No. 41, “Jupiter” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The students' winning artwork was projected at the symphony's Young People’s Concert "Amadeus and Papa Haydn". #slessatx #stlukeslifeincolor #scholarscitizensleaders @sasymphony
Our 2nd grade brought the Westward Expansion to life today on the South Lawn as the culmination of an in-depth, interdisciplinary unit involving history, math, communication and literacy, music, and art. The students constructed replicas of log cabins, covered wagons, sod houses and more in the SLES iLab, and each student created a square depicting pioneer life for their communal quilt. #slessatx #gowestyoungfriends
Kudos to the 53 SLES students in grades 3-8 who read at least five titles on the Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List in the fall and voted for their favorite. St. Luke's is highly engaged with the TBA process and was one of three schools to be chosen to announce the results in the official video! Our participants celebrated the announcement of the 2017 TBA winner in the Newman Library. Drum roll, please: Roller Girl by Victoria Jamieson!
Congratulations to SLES 5th graders Tiernan and Marcus for a stellar performance in last weekend's Bob Hope Scholastic Chess Tournament! Tiernan brought home the 1st place trophy for their division, and together they earned SLES a 5th place ranking. #slessatx #chessmasters
