Parents and grandparents fill vital roles in the life of St. Luke’s. All the hours and talents they give are like the icing on a cake. The cake itself provides the form and substance, but the icing adds the perfect blend of enthusiasm and fun. Much of the success our teachers and students enjoy is a direct result of parents’ and grandparents’ involvement.
Parent volunteers help with several major annual events. Bayou Bash, the school’s primary social gathering for all families, occurs in the fall. This event typically draws 500 people, so it requires a team of volunteers to organize. Parents also make the annual auction possible. This spring event augments the school budget and allows for improvements to facilities, equipment, curriculum, and faculty development.
Our school parents and grandparents fill many smaller but no less important roles throughout the school. Reading to students, helping teachers, organizing class parties, making Christmas ornaments, driving for field trips, and helping with work days are just some of the ways volunteers help keep St. Luke’s running smoothly.
Parents’ Guild serves the school and our students in many important ways from volunteering time to support school functions and faculty to planning fundraising activities for the school. Volunteers plan and lead some of the most special events of the year.
Golden Sharks Grandparents’ Guild
The “Golden Sharks” Grandparents’ Guild would like to welcome all St. Luke’s grandparents to be part of the Grandparents’ Guild. Our “Golden Sharks” group enjoys fellowship and offers fun volunteer opportunities for those who would like to be more involved in our school community. If you would like more information about the Grandparents’ Guild, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are no special dues, fees, or required volunteer hours to be part of the Grandparents’ Guild. We offer a perfect opportunity to meet fellow grandparents, consider ways to become involved at school, and enjoy sharing the joys of our favorite topic… our GRANDCHILDREN!
Shark Bites Athletics Association
We welcome every parent to participate in Shark Bites.
The athletic program at St. Luke’s combines the idea of nurturing mind, body, and spirit. These values benefit our student athletes on the field and in the classroom, and provide positive, lifelong impacts. This year the Sharkbites is producing a cookbook filled with family recipes. Cookbooks will be available for purchase later in the year. Sharkbites sweatshirts will also be available for purchase.
All students in 5th through 8th grade are invited to participate on our school athletic teams.
