Leadership Message

Dear St. Luke Families,


Welcome back! I hope you all enjoyed a safe and happy summer and were able to spend time with your families. We are excited to welcome you all back to a wonderful new school year. Each week our SMORE will come out to keep you up to date on the latest information from St. Luke, EICS division, OLPH Parish and our School Council. It will also contain highlights from students and the many great activities they are participating in. Please call the school 780-922-5798 if you have any questions about the start of this new year.


Back to School Prayer:

Dear Jesus, thank You for holiday times when we have freedom to spend quality time with family and friends and to take a break from the daily routine of school and curriculum based work. Thank You for the fun times we have all enjoyed, and now that we are about to start a new term at school, we pray that You would continue to be with us, to help and encourage in all we say and do.

Help us to settle back into the daily routine of school work and give us a heart that desires to learn, a brain that is able to retain what is needful and the ability to dismiss that which is not edifying or necessary for health or wholeness.

Fill our hearts and minds with Your truth and light, and hold us steady in the palm of Your hand as You have promised. Keep us from every sort of danger throughout each day, and may we seek to love You more and serve You better with every passing day. In Jesus' name we pray,

Amen



Blessings,

Cathy Hinger

EARLY LEARNING PROGRAMS - REGISTRATION IS STILL OPEN!

Kindergarten Program

Independence, initiative, decision making, creativity, the ability to learn, relationships and feelings of self-worth - all have their beginnings in early childhood. We believe that each child is unique and, together with parents as our partners, we build upon children's natural curiosity and spontaneity, encouraging and supporting them as they take their first step into school. To register for Kindergarten in the 2022-2023 school year, your child must be 5 years old by December 31, 2022. This program will run Tuesday/Thursday and alternating Fridays. For more information on registration for the Kindergarten Program visit our St. Luke Early Learning SMORE and the EICS Kindergarten site.


Pre-Kindergarten Program

The St. Luke Pre-Kindergarten program is a Catholic faith infused, student-centered, play-based program in a literacy and numeracy rich learning environment. Our Pre-Kindergarten program supports all students to learn and grow by working alongside our experienced and caring staff. Our Pre-Kindergarten program is taught by a knowledgeable and caring certified teacher and strives to ensure all students enjoy their first school experience and are excited to work and learn with their friends. Children must be 4 years old by December 31, 2022. Please note there is a $300.00/month cost to attend this program. This program will run Tuesday/Thursday and alternating Fridays.


KinderPlus Program

St. Luke will be offering an optional full day, fee-based program, Kinder Plus, to complement our Tuesday/Thursday Kindergarten program.This program will meet the needs of families and children by providing a full day instruction running on the opposite days of our Kindergarten program: Monday/Wednesday and alternating Fridays. Kinder Plus will complement the Kindergarten program through the enhancement of skills such as problem solving, social interactions and project based learning. Please contact the office for more information and for registration instructions.

If you have any questions in regards to any of our programs please call our office at 780-992-5920.
