School Announcements:

End of Year Survey

PLEASE take just a few minutes to complete this end of year “on-line school” survey for us. It includes questions for families with multiple students at different schools – make sure when answering respond based only on your student(s) at Lumen!  We are trying to get an understanding of how well we did in providing quality education remotely, and what we could have done differently.  Even if you have students of other ages and at other schools, please “pretend” that those at Lumen are the only ones!  Thank you! Your input is very valuable. Click here to start your survey:    https://bit.ly/2020onlineparent

Tuition Scholarships

For families applying for tuition scholarships, remember that the deadline to do so is Monday, June 1st.  For more information, visit: http://cts-tuition.com/app/lumancak/

2020-21 Parent Share Hours

As a reminder, each family has an obligation to contribute volunteer hours in support of our school community. We have two immediate needs that will help you get a jump on your Share Hours for next year and then anticipate having two other opportunities during the summer.

Immediate needs:

  1. Help weed, water and keep the “Mary” garden by the front door of the school looking fresh and beautiful. This has been managed by the family of a graduating senior who would like to hand the job off. If gardening is your thing, please call Michell Goodwin at 317-0690.

  2. The Archangel Attic is planning on reopening on June 6 but need our assistance to make this happen. Many of the regular weekday volunteers, or their family members, fall into a high risk category.  A separate email with detailed information and a link to sign up to help will be coming soon.

Anticipated needs:

1) A Lumen parking lot garage sale with all proceeds designated for school needs (date not yet set);

2) Helping True Value Hardware on Jewel Lake (a long time school supporter) distribute 4th of July flags to neighborhoods around the school.

Senior Pictures

Summer is a fantastic time to get senior pictures done, so *hint hint* parents of seniors, schedule those photo shoots now and get that checked off your list of things to do.

End of Year Administrative Wrap Up/Registration Information 

Look for an email from the Front Office in the next week or so which will (hopefully) answer any final questions from this year and get you ready for back to school registration and first week of school next year.

St. Benedict’s & Other Community Events:

St. Benedict’s Youth Group

Don’t forget that St. Ben’s Youth Group will continue to meet over the summer. Check in with Elise at emartinez@stbenedictsak.com to keep up on the weekly plan of events.

Thanks one and all for a great year! It’s been a delight for me to be a part of your student’s Lumen experience and I can’t wait to see everyone in a few months. – Ms. Gore
