Volunteering and Policy Changes

Volunteering

 

All families are required to complete 25 volunteer hours each school year, 10 of the hours must be completed during the Fall Festival. If a family does not complete the volunteer hours they will be charged $250.    Prior to volunteering you must complete a “Protecting God’s Children” course and be fingerprinted through the diocese. Please contact the office if you would like information on how to complete these requirements.

 

Policy Changes

Backpacks

 

Students in grades PreK-3 to 8th may bring a backpack on campus.  However, it must be either clear plastic or mesh. Contents of backpack must be visible.  

 

Tardy Policy

 

It is important that we start school on time. It is not only important to prevent disruptions to the learning environment but excessive tardies can jeopardize a student's individual scholarship as well as the school’s scholarship compliance. The  SAC committee voted to implement a fee based tardy policy.

 

The final bell rings at 7:50 a.m. – if a student is not at morning assembly they must report to the office and receive a pass to class.  If they reach 10 tardies per semester they will be charged a $5 fee per tardy up to and including 15 (a total of up to $75): on the 16th tardy, they will receive a 2- hour Saturday detention and an additional $25 fine.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



 

Trabajar como voluntario

 

Todas las familias deben completar 25 horas de voluntariado cada año escolar, 10 de las horas deben completarse durante el Festival de otoño. Si una familia no completa las horas de trabajo voluntario, se les cobrará $ 250. Antes de ser voluntario, debe completar un curso de "Proteger a los niños de Dios" y hacerse una huella digital a través de la diócesis. Comuníquese con la oficina si desea información sobre cómo completar estos requisitos.

 

Cambios en la política

 

Mochilas

 

Los estudiantes en los grados PreK-3 a 8 pueden traer una mochila al campus. Sin embargo, debe ser de plástico transparente o malla. El contenido de la mochila debe ser visible.

 

Política de tardanzas

 

Es importante que comencemos la escuela a tiempo. No solo es importante prevenir las interrupciones en el entorno de aprendizaje, sino que las tardanzas excesivas pueden poner en peligro la beca individual de un estudiante, así como el cumplimiento de la beca de la escuela. El comité de SAC votó para implementar una política de tardanzas basada en tarifas.

 

La campana final suena a las 7:50 a.m. - si un estudiante no está en la asamblea de la mañana, debe presentarse en la oficina y recibir un pase para la clase. Si llegan a 10 llegadas tarde por semestre, se les cobrará una tarifa de $ 5 por llegada hasta 15 inclusive (un total de hasta $ 75): en la llegada tardía 16, recibirán una detención de sábado de 2 horas y una multa adicional de $ 25.

End of the School year 2018-2019 Letter



Dear St. Luke Parents,

 

It seems hard to believe we are at the end of the school year. My year has been filled with watching students grow not only in height but in their faith and academics. My favorite part of each day is coming together as a community to celebrate our faith and student achievement at morning assembly.  

 

The lunch program is a success and we are planning on adding a breakfast program in the fall.  Details of the program will be coming soon. We have a new uniform company this year, Jonathan Reed Uniforms. They are working with us to ensure a quality product at the lowest possible prices. July 8, the uniform company will be back on campus for uniform fittings.

 

Focusing on our mission of providing a rigorous Catholic education to as many students as possible, we have added a  Guidance Counselor on staff starting in the fall. Additionally, A STEM specialist will be on staff to run the middle school science and STEM curriculum.. We are excited about adding an expanded after school music program beginning in September.  We will be offering strings, voice, piano and band lessons.

 

So that you might gain some insight into our school community, please take a look at some of our most recent initiatives:

 

  • Clear or mesh backpacks, only, for all grade levels
  • VEX  robotic camp July 1-12
  • Summer drop-in basic skills building, July 2nd, 9th, 16th, and 23rd
  • Summer sports conditioning
  • With a grant from Notre Dame we will continue our Chromebook initiative as well as replace outdated smart boards with smart TV's
  • Summer reading and math assignments, grades 1-8
  • Summer office hours: June 2-14 8:30-12:30, June 24-July 31 8:30-12:30.

 

Finally, I end this year with joy and hope for the coming year.  I wish all of you a happy, healthy, and safe summer. I look forward to seeing you in August.  

 

Your continued partner in faith and education

Queridos padres de San Lucas:

 

Parece difícil creer que estamos al final del año escolar. Mi año ha estado lleno de ver a los estudiantes crecer no solo en altura, sino también en su fe y en lo académico. Mi parte favorita de cada día es reunirse como comunidad para celebrar nuestra fe y el logro estudiantil en la asamblea de la mañana.

 

El programa de almuerzo es un éxito y estamos planeando agregar un programa de desayuno en el otoño. Los detalles del programa vendrán pronto. Tenemos una nueva compañía de uniformes este año, Jonathan Reed Uniforms. Trabajan con nosotros para garantizar un producto de calidad a los precios más bajos posibles. El 8 de julio, la compañía de uniformes regresará al campus para los uniformes.

 

Al enfocarnos en nuestra misión de brindar una educación católica rigurosa a la mayor cantidad de estudiantes posible, hemos agregado un Consejero de orientación al personal a partir del otoño. Además, un especialista de STEM estará en el personal para dirigir la ciencia de la escuela intermedia y el plan de estudios STEM. Estamos muy contentos de agregar un programa de música para después de la escuela que se amplíe a partir de septiembre. Estaremos ofreciendo clases de cuerdas, voz, piano y banda.

 

Para que pueda obtener una idea de nuestra comunidad escolar, eche un vistazo a algunas de nuestras iniciativas más recientes:

 

  • Mochilas transparentes o de malla, solo, para todos los niveles de grado
  • Campamento robótico VEX del 1 al 12 de julio
  • Desarrollo de habilidades básicas durante el verano, 2, 9, 16 y 23 de julio
  • Acondicionamiento deportivo de verano
  • Con una subvención de Notre Dame continuaremos nuestra iniciativa de Chromebook y reemplazaremos los tableros inteligentes obsoletos con televisores inteligentes.
  • Tareas de lectura y matemáticas para el verano, grados 1-8
  • Horario de oficina de verano: 2 al 14 de junio 8: 30-12: 30, del 24 de junio al 31 de julio 8: 30-12: 30.

Finalmente, termino este año con alegría y esperanza para el próximo año. Les deseo a todos un feliz, saludable y seguro verano. Espero verte en agosto.

 

Tu compañero continuo en la fe y la educación.

Happy Thanksgiving

“ Let them thank the LORD for his mercy, such wondrous deeds for the children of Adam. for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.” --Psalms 107:8-9

 Dear St. Luke Families,

I am thankful for the amazing support of our parents, our students, and the community at large. Every day, I am moved and inspired by what I see here at St. Luke. From a greeting each morning from parents and students to the community of a Friday Mass.

The success of our school stems from our foundation of our core values and root beliefs. Every day, dedicated teachers and staff nurture a climate of excellence and love.

I am thankful that St. Luke strives for excellence in every classroom. I am thankful for the incredible devotion of our staff and their unique ability to teach and inspire our children.

Thank you for your continued support and wish you all a safe and Happy Thanksgiving! We will see everyone back in school on Monday, November 26th.

Your continued partner in faith and education.

Happy Thanksgiving (spanish)

“Que den gracias al Señor por su misericordia, hechos tan maravillosos para los hijos de Adán. porque él satisface a los sedientos y llena de hambre a los hambrientos. "--Salmos 107: 8-9

Queridas familias de San Lucas,

 Estoy agradecida por el increíble apoyo de nuestros padres, nuestros estudiantes y la comunidad en general. Todos los días, me conmueve y me inspira lo que veo aquí en St. Luke. Desde un saludo cada mañana de padres y alumnos a la comunidad de una misa de viernes.

El éxito de nuestra escuela proviene de nuestra base, de nuestros valores fundamentales y creencias fundamentales. Cada día, maestros y personal estan dedicados fomentar un clima de excelencia y amor.

Estoy agradecida de que St. Luke se esfuerza por la excelencia en cada salón de clases. Estoy agradecida por la increíble devoción de nuestro personal y su capacidad única para enseñar e inspirar a nuestros niños.

¡Gracias por su continuo apoyo y les deseo a todos un feliz y seguro Día de Acción de Gracias! Veremos a todos de regreso en la escuela el lunes 26 de noviembre.

"Se pou yo remèsye Senyè a pou mizèrikòd li, bèl bagay sa yo pou pitit Adan yo. Paske li satisfè swaf dlo a, li plen grangou yo ak bon bagay. "- Sòm 107: 8-9

 

Chè Saint Luc fanmi,

 Mwen rekonesan pou sipò etonan paran nou yo, elèv nou yo, ak kominote a nan gwo. Chak jou, mwen te deplase ak enspire pa sa mwen wè isit la nan St Lik. Soti nan yon salitasyon chak maten soti nan paran yo ak elèv nan kominote a nan yon Mass Vandredi.

Siksè nan lekòl nou an soti nan fondasyon nou an nan valè debaz nou yo ak kwayans rasin. Chak jou, pwofesè devwe ak anplwaye nouri yon klima nan ekselans ak lanmou.

Mwen rekonesan ke St. Luke fè efò pou ekselans nan chak salklas. Mwen rekonesan pou devosyon enkwayab nan anplwaye nou yo ak kapasite inik yo pou anseye ak enspire timoun nou yo.

Mèsi pou sipò ou kontinye epi swete w tout yon Thanksgiving san danje e kontan! Nou pral wè tout moun tounen nan lekòl nan Lendi, 26 novanm.

Patenarya kontinye ou nan lafwa ak edikasyon.

Summer Calendars

Dear Spartan Families,

Spring has finally sprung and the end of the 17-18 school year is fast approaching.  Attached to this note, you will find the summer calendars detailing the happenings at St. Luke.  SLCS will have new programs and I  encourage you to take advantage of them.

  • Summer sports: In order to continue growing our sports program we will have off-season sports for grades 4th-8th. We encourage all children to participate in these workouts for the betterment of our athletic program.  Returning athletes are required to attend sessions that apply to their sport(s), as well as strengthen and condition themselves as they prepare for their 18-19 seasons. The programs will begin in May (see attached calendar for dates).  Contact Coach at   if you have any questions.
  • Summer Math, Writing, and Reading Skills Review: We will be have a drop-in skills review day on Tuesdays, beginning June 12th. Students can come by school from 9-12:00 AM and receive reinforcement instruction and practice as math, reading, and writing skills are reviewed.   There will be no charge for this program.  The program will be run by Mrs. Bacchus, Dr. Demartino, and Mrs. Miller.
  • Summer Library Days: During the summer it is important to continue reading. We have been fortunate this year to have books from the list, “The Hundred Books Every Child Should Read Before Leaving Grammar School”, which were donated to our library. To encourage our ongoing literacy program there are three Fridays (June 29th, July 13th and July 27th) from 9-12:00 AM when the SLCS library will be open.  Students will be able to stop by, check out books for reading, and return them.  Please be sure to encourage reading throughout the summer.  A ‘family read together’ time is a wonderful way to how your child(ren) that you value reading. 
  • Robotics Camp: Dates: June 18-22, Time: 9-3:00 PM, Cost: $200. Students will work to develop basic coding skills, and design, build and program a robot. Seating is limited. Call early
  • Voice Lessons: Mr. Faulkner is offering voice lessons on Wednesdays. Each lesson will be 30 minutes. Students will  pick a time: 3 pm, 4 pm, or 5 pm for their lesson.  There is no cost for the program.  Please contact Mr. Faulkner at for availability. 
  • Choir Practice: Dates: August 6th-10th, Time: 1-5:00. Returning and new choir members will prepare for the coming school year.

Technology in the Classroom: One School's Experience

How one Florida school is improving student life with communications technology and updated infrastructure

By: Matt Brunk

This article was originally published on nojitter.com

In Palm Beach County Fla., St. Luke Catholic School has partnered with the University of Notre Dame's Alliance for Catholic Education initiative to provide the highest quality Catholic education to as many children as possible in under-served communities. During a three-year teaching fellowship at Notre Dame, Principal Diann Bacchus developed an understanding of the need to create a student-centered, blended-learning classroom that's enhanced with the use of technology.

The school uses technology for communication with parents, curriculum in the classroom, an automated library system, and assessments. Additionally, it uses social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and Remind to keep stakeholders informed. Communications and collaboration tools support private chat/IM between staff, and support to teachers using IM.

Technology is helping St. Luke transform from a traditional educational environment to a student-centered 21st learning environment -- and in the process, it has been able to expose students to jobs and opportunities that they wouldn't otherwise have the opportunity to learn about. For example, students are able to take virtual tours of the Pyramids, The Louvre Museum, learn about computer programming through activities such as The Hour of Code, and participate in a NASA partnership called Orion's Quest.

St. Luke uses Google G Suite for education, integrated with its school management system and single sign-on system. It currently provides 48 Chromebooks, 50 iPads, and 25 MacBooks for student use, and is looking for ways to acquire more tablets and charging stations so it can move ahead with its one-to-one initiative.

Infrastructure is vital to the school's technology initiatives.

The campus fiber backbone network utilizes Adtran Netvanta PoE switches and ProCloud; the SonicWall NSA 2600 firewall; Avast Cloud endpoint protection, and Carbonite backup.

The St. Luke campus, which includes the school plus a church, parish hall, rectory, and other buildings, will transition to AT&T Fiber, for 100-Mbps service, in May, and then begin to migrate voice and fax services from PRI, F-T1.5, and POTS over to a Panasonic communications server solution that supports IP paging and an automated bell schedule. It'll also adopt a new interactive Panasonic display that eliminates the need for short throw projectors and meshes with its online use and Wi-Fi. St. Luke will realize significant cost reductions and the elimination of redundant services and equipment.

In the enterprise, we use terms such as "best in class." In this case, St. Luke is definitely providing best in class through its technology deployments and how it's impacting student lives by providing optimal instruction time with effective and meaningful learning and effective partnerships.
