Friday, April 3

Please click on the video for a message from your SLES family. Special thanks to our organizer and video editor, Mrs. McCullough. Go Tigers!
Dear St. Luke’s families,

As you may have heard by now, Governor Abbott has ordered all school campuses to continue to stay closed until May 4. St. Luke’s will continue to be open through its online/distance learning programs through May 4. All of us hope to be able to return to our campus but that time remains unknown. We shall continue to monitor and work with all relevant health and governmental agencies as well as with our fellow San Antonio independent schools and our regional and national school associations to safeguard the well-being of our students and employees.
 
Next week we enter Holy Week, the most important week in the Christian yearly calendar. We will remember the events of Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday which lead us to the celebration of the resurrection on Easter Sunday. During these very uncertain times, we can take strength and comfort in God’s eternal promises and in God’s providential care and love for us every day, and in the triumph of Jesus’ resurrection. I hope you will spend some time in prayer and thanksgiving next week and are able to attend Holy Week and Easter services, albeit online.

Your continued support is greatly appreciated by me and all of my colleagues here. We shall continue to keep you updated on any developments. Please continue to take good care of yourselves and your families.

Blessings,
James

In observance of Easter, St. Luke's online/distance learning classes will be on break from Friday, April 10 to Monday, April 13. Classes will resume on Tuesday, April 14. Even in these unusual and scary times, we can take solace in the love God showed us as he sent his Son to earth to live among us, die, and rise from the grave so that we all may have eternal life in the Lord.  

St. Luke's Top Five Tips for Distance Learning

The transition to an online/distance learning program brings many new challenges for students and parents. For a simple guide on how to be a successful distance learner, we would like to offer our top five tips. Please click on the image to read our recommendations on how you can best support your PK3-8th grade student during this time. 

Distance Learning Guidelines for Students

With the increase in screen time and access to devices required for online learning, we ask that parents please review the following SLES guidelines and feedback from faculty with your student(s):
  • Google Hangouts (both Meet and Chat) are to be created and operated by SLES faculty and staff. These apps are to be used for official school business, such as homeroom/advisory check-ins, Q&A with teachers, class discussions, organized times for students to socialize with each other, et al. 
  • All our Google apps continue to be closely monitored by our Gaggle Security program. We expect students to follow the St. Luke’s Way at all times when interacting with each other and faculty through our online learning programs.

  • Students in 1st-8th grades should check their SLES emails daily and keep their inboxes as clean as possible. 

  • Students should read and listen to directions carefully before they begin an assignment. Many mistakes are made when students assume they know what the assignment is asking. Also, please follow the directions on how to submit work to ensure it is turned in correctly. 

  • Students are encouraged to attempt online assignments on their own before asking for help. After clearly reading or listening to the directions, they should attempt the assignment. If they hit a hurdle they cannot overcome, they should then message their teacher either through Google Chat or email.  

  • Remember that grammar and spelling are important when completing assignments online. These are not text messages. 

  • Seesaw users can print out hard copies of assignments by clicking the “view original” option. 

  • Our teachers are working hard to produce meaningful and engaging material. We encourage you to give regular feedback by "liking" and/or commenting on student lessons and activities. Your feedback will help guide their planning of future activities.
