From the Principal

As I watched the news the other evening, I started thinking about the federal government partial shutdown. If any of our St. Jude families are affected by this furlough, please reach out to me. As a community, we are here to help.

It is good to be back with all the students, I missed their smiling faces! I would also like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all the families who participated in my birthday activities on Thursday. We certainly had a fun day at school dressed like old people. They say age is just a number, I am beginning to understand WHY! I hope you have a terrific weekend with your family.

Many blessings,

Mrs. Molly Hibler

Collecting Fleece Donations

Service Council is looking for fleece donations (large pieces and scraps would be great). We will be using the fleece in January to make door pulls for nursing homes.

Wax Museum

A visiting Wax Museum was on display Friday in the gym. 6th-grade students read biographies over break for their reading class, dressed as the main character, and shared their books with the rest of the school.
