St. Luke's School - Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO)
The St. Luke’s School Parent Teacher Organization is excited to share the school year with you and your children! The PTO aims to provide our parents with many different opportunities to be involved in school life and build a happy, strong community of families.
As a parent or guardian, you are automatically a member of the PTO and are invited to all PTO meetings, as well as a wide variety of school events, which build our wonderful community. We welcome you and encourage you to volunteer your talents to one or more of our PTO activities.
Please contact the PTO at email@example.com with any questions or suggestions. Thank you and welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!

You can do it once a month, once a week, the first Monday of every month, etc. It's up to you. Just let the lunch duty coordinator know what your availability is and she'll put you on the schedule.Please contact Paula Soares: email@example.comBOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION: SEND IN YOUR BOX TOPS!Because of your diligence, SLS was able to raise just over $2,000 last school year!!! That is over $1,000 more from last year! So thank you so much for your support! For those that don't know, Box Tops can be found on various supermarket products and can be cut out and sent into school. This is an easy way to generate money for our school! SLS receives 5 cents for every box top submitted and are submitted for reimbursement twice per year - once in the Fall and once in the Spring.
Put all your clipped box tops in a zip lock and drop them off at the school office or send them in your child's backpack. The box tops bin is located on the first floor near the center staircase. The kids love to fill the bin!Program Dates: October – March
The Stop & Shop A+ Program is an easy way to raise funds for St Luke’s School. After you register your card, each shopping trip earns CASH for our school!
Even if you registered your card last year, you must re-register this year for our school to receive credit. Attending to this simple process makes a HUGE difference to our school.If you have any questions or input, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
