St. Jude School
November 30, 2018
From the Principal
Sometimes you return to school from a break and immediately feel like you never left. Thanksgiving seems like it was a month ago. Am I right? We have had a busy week here at St. Jude School. A very successful #weGiveCatholic online day of giving on Tuesday and a lovely Advent Prayer Service on Wednesday. A very special thank you to Mrs. Debbie Farina, and her father, Mr. Rak for leading us in song. We ended our week with Mass and honored the students selected this month for the character trait of gratitude. As Fr. Kosem said, "gratitude is all about attitude." I am grateful for my staff and awesome families that surround St. Jude School. Have a great weekend.
Mrs. Molly Hibler.
A Huge Thank You!

Basketball Clinics to be held over Chirstimas Break
MTG and TNBA will be hosting a basketball clinic over the holidays at St. Jude. It will take place December 26-28 from 9am-12pm and is for grades 3-8. Cost is $95 and includes the clinic as well as a dri-fit shirt. This clinic will be an excellent way for the kids to hone their basketball skills, participate in contests, win prizes, and burn off some of that holiday energy.

A Note About Fresh Market Accounts
If you need to load money onto your child's account, you may do that at home online. If you need information on how to do this, contact Mrs. Januzzi. Your child can load money here at school in the morning (we have the staff to help.) When sending money in with your child $1, $2, $5, $10 or $20, note we cannot give cash back. If you have more then one child, each child will need their own money, seeing everyone has their account.
