From our PA President:

Kim Jodka, Parents' Association President

We (Jodkas) love St. Luke’s. You won't find another school that puts a bigger emphasis on family, community and being kind to others. I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to send all three of our children here. (Maddie ‘14, Nick ‘16, and Henry ‘20) As parents, we partner with a brilliant faculty not only dedicated to academic, athletic and artistic excellence, but also to safeguarding our children’s emotional well-being. St. Luke’s families are down-to-earth, engaged and invested—they recognize that we all play a part in the School's success. Every parent is a member of the PA and invited to volunteer or support in any way the many PA events planned throughout the year. I hope to see you on the Hilltop!"

  • SLS PA: Dr. Suniya Luthar Shares Her Research on Vulnerability in Affluent Teens

    On Monday, November 27, St. Luke’s parents and their friends filled the Fireplace Commons to hear nationally-acclaimed researcher Suniya Luthar, Ph.D., share highlights of her research about the risks of growing up in an affluent community. She spoke about how the pressure felt by children at high-achieving schools leads to significantly greater levels of distress than national norms. In the Northeast, substance use is a particular problem due to easy access (money, fake IDs, etc.), lack of consequences from parents, peer norms, and pressure to succeed socially, academically and in extracurricular activities.
