Our Vision and Mission Statments

St. Luke’s Community School Program at Panther Valley School District

WHO and WHAT:  St. Luke’s University Health Network (SLUHN) Miners Campus partners with the Panther Valley School District in the Adopt a School Program.  The Adopt a School Program uses the school district as a hub in the community to improve the health and educational outcomes of the students. Local School Coordinators and Community Leadership Committees assess, evaluate and guide the initiatives.  St. Luke’s evidence-based programs/services include:

  • Mobile Youth Health Services (Connecting Students to Medical, Dental & Vision Vans, Insurance, Physical & Behavioral Health Assessments and Services)
  • Mental Health Programs (YESS! program, Adolescent Depression Awareness, Substance Abuse Prevention and Healthy Relationship Programs)
  • Healthy Living Initiatives (Tail on the Trail, Live Your Life, School Gardens, Nutrition and Health Education Programs)
  • Literacy Programs (Dr. Seuss Day, Little Free Libraries and free access to books throughout the year for all)
  • Youth Development and Career Mentoring

WHEN:  Throughout the year different programs occur for different grades and district wide while community outreach to connect students and families to care occurs on a consistent basis. 

WHY:  Every three years St. Luke’s conducts a Community Health Needs Assessment where we have found Adolescent Health, Mental Health, Access to Care (medical, dental, vision, insurance), Chronic Disease Prevention & Management and Elder Health as the priority needs. 
Our next CHNA will occur in 2025.
