From the Principal
Dear St. Jude School Families:
Today marks the end of the first quarter. It sure has been a busy start to the school year! It was a pleasure to see our families at the 75th Mass celebration with Bishop Perez. So many stopped over to the Open House, and the halls were buzzing with excitement. Thank you to all those who cooked, served, and helped to clean up. When we all work together, many hands indeed make light work. It is heartwarming to be surrounded by such an involved group of families, dedicated staff, and an active parish community. I hope each of you has a fantastic weekend.
Mrs. Molly Hibler.

Halloween is Coming
Primary: Students are allowed to come to school in costumes. Masks are allowed. Make-up is allowed, but please make sure your child understands they will be in make up all day long. Weapons are not permitted, keep those for trick-or-treat time at home. Please avoid gore costumes such as bloody clowns. Zombies are ok. Please consider sending in a change of clothes just in case your child decides it’s too much for them. Intermediate and Junior High: Students are permitted to dress down, appropriate Halloween colored attire, and just for fun, add a funky hat.

Helping Hands Letter of Thanks
Helen Bolger, Kenya Simpson, Joseph Simpson, Evan Smith, Brendon O'Donnell, Sammy Zambataro, Lauren Hahn, Zach Pearl, and Whisper Carter.
These students did a fantastic job and should be recognized for it. We had a very, very busy distribution. 120 families showed up at the beginning, and that increased to over 160 by 2 PM. The kids, for the most part, acted as runners taking the groceries in the carts to the clients' vehicles. It was hectic and crazy, but they stayed with it, focused and on point through to the end.
They were very kind and respectful to our clients (not the easiest thing to do, sometimes) and extremely polite and cooperative with all the volunteers with whom they worked.
Please extend our appreciation for their hard work and for giving up of their free time on the weekend to help us and our families. They were absolutely awesome! A real affirmation of all that you do at St. Jude School.
We look forward to working with these youngsters again, in the months to come. We will certainly need them at our Thanksgiving Distribution, November 17th...when we anticipate 350 families.
