Shout outs to Lauren (K), Evie (3rd), Nico (K), Chloe (3rd), Sam (PK4), Maddox (3rd), Daniel (3rd), and Trinity (3rd) for modeling excellence, every day, every way!
Dear St. Luke’s families,

It was a short but busy week of learning on the Hilltop. On Wednesday, in honor of Black History Month, our 5th graders offered their declamations on African-American poetry. SLES 3rd graders presented their declamations on Greek mythology on Thursday. Our National Junior Honor Society inducted six new members who embody scholarship, leadership, character, citizenship, and service.  Congratulations to new members Ivana Kovalska, Kat Luna, Lauren Maverick, Allison Poulter, Cecelia Weaver, and Bianca Withers. This week when we recognize and remember two of our greatest presidents, our Kindergarteners created their special “Hall of Presidents” which features life size presidential cut outs along with student reports on their presidents.

Next week, our popular school wide Book Fair begins which celebrates learning and reading across all grades. SLES welcomes noted children’s author and illustrator George O’Connor who will be speaking with our students. The week concludes with our “Grandparents’ & Special Friends’ Day” chapel and program where we give thanks for our grandparents and special friends whose lives mean so much to us.  Friday, February 28 is an early dismissal day at 11:30am. 

Dr. Catherine Spezia has been a wonderful member of the St. Luke’s Episcopal School community for many years. Her four children graduated from St. Luke’s and she has been teaching English/Language Arts for the last several years. Next year, her youngest son will be a Senior in high school and she has decided to take next year off to spend it with him. We are very grateful for Catherine’s countless contributions to the St. Luke’s community.

St. Luke's Church Vacation Bible School 2020

Knights of North Castle: Quest for the King's Armor! Plans are already underway for an amazing VBS this summer, so please mark your calendars for the week of June 22-26!

This year’s theme takes kids ages 4 through 5th grade to a frozen land on a quest for the king’s armor. Kids will spend the week exploring the strength of God’s power through scripture from both the Old and New Testaments. Through these scriptures kids will discover different pieces of protective armor - the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Justice, the Shoes of Peace, the Shield of Faith, and the Helmet of Salvation - at work in the lives of familiar Bible characters, and explore how that armor works in their own lives as they follow and serve God.

Junior and senior high youth may serve as “Teen Helpers” with registrations beginning in March. Our VBS Chairs this year are Xochitl Denton and Jenny Holshouser. If you feel called to help with VBS in ANY capacity, please contact Suzanna Frey at
