Friday, January 17

Shout out to Lilah (PK4) and our middle school robotics team, Nerds of Steel, for modeling excellence every day, every way!
Congratulations to our 8th graders Ethan, Catie, Trinity, Javi, and Baako, and their coach, Mrs. Parker, on their advancement to the Alamo Area Championship of the FIRST LEGO League robotics tournament. 
Dear St. Luke’s families,

It was great to see so many of you at our “Step Up Day” breakfast and program. Wonderful to hear from our alumni about their formative SLES years and from our parents about their great SLES experiences. Our incoming head of school, Chelsea Collins, shared her compelling vision for next year and beyond. Exciting times lie ahead!

I strongly urge you to promptly complete the online re-enrollment process which starts on Tuesday, January 21, and ends on Friday, January 31. Your prompt re-enrollment greatly facilitates our planning for next school year. I also strongly encourage you to invite friends and neighbors to come to our Admission Preview next Thursday, January 23. This event highlights the many advantages and distinct attributes of a St. Luke’s education. I know many of you will be at school on Friday, January 24, for our very important parent-teacher conferences. We also will be having a special “Chapel Buddy” Basketball evening on January 21. Come watch and cheer for our girls and boys “A” teams, starting at 4:30 p.m. in the gym.

As we enjoy the MLK holiday weekend, we remember and give thanks for Dr. King’s Christian legacy of advocating for social justice and civil rights for all Americans. As a young chorister serving at the Washington National Cathedral, I heard his powerful and final Sunday sermon the week before his assassination. He spoke on the need for all of us to treat one another with justice, mercy, and love. An enduring message and goal. 


Best wishes,
James
