All St. Luke School students in grades five to seven participate in the band program, which is guided by a full-time band director.

PALM SPRINGS  |  Resilience. That is what St. Luke School is known for, said Principal Diann Bacchus. Resilience and a strong Catholic identity.

The school, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, is now nearly at capacity with 295 students and growing. There are plans to build a new gymnasium, cafeteria and six classrooms. She said they had hoped to kick off the 60th by tearing down a building to make way for the new structure, but the process has been slower than expected.
