As parents and educators, we set high expectations for our children in the areas of academics, sports, and character development. We should expect our children to strive for excellence in Godly characteristics as well. While it is the parents at home who instill this desire in our students, St. Luke strives to reinforce – and grow – that desire while students are at school. All St. Luke School students attend weekly Chapel services on Wednesdays. The rest of the week, some portion of class time is devoted to religious instruction. All students have a weekly Bible memory verse, and biblical lessons for the week are centered around that verse. To further inspire our students to be the examples God wants them to be, we hold a special luncheon each quarter. This “Christian Citizen of the Quarter” luncheon is enjoyed by one student from each homeroom. Expectations are high for all St. Luke students, but those who are going above and beyond when it comes to making good choices, doing their best work, and supporting their peers – in essence, truly being Christian citizens – receive this special recognition.
The principles of Servant Leadership are an integral component of life at St. Luke School. In addition to participation in weekly Chapel services, students are encouraged to support our monthly mission projects by donating items to the St. Luke Church Food Pantry, bringing in “Chapel Change” on Wednesdays and participating in Missions Jeans Days. Since 2003, St. Luke School has donated over 30,000 items to the St. Luke Food Pantry and more than $100,000 to local, national and international service organizations.
