Thank you for all you do to support Catholic education, providing excellent mathematical instruction to our intermediate students.

Many blessings,

Mrs. Molly Hibler

The annual May Crowning of Mary will be held at St. Jude Church on Friday, May 10, 2019, at 8:00 a.m. All are invited to attend this spe­cial ceremony!

The Mother’s Day Mass for students in grades K-8 will immediately follow the May Crowning at 8:30 a.m. We invite all of the spe­cial women in our students’ lives to attend this Mass.

Fresh Market Message

We have been experiencing several issues this year with our student's lunch account information deleting/disappearing off our kiosk. I have been in touch with 365 support, and I believe we have discovered the issue. PLEASE DO NOT PUT IN AN ALTERNATIVE EMAIL in the field ALT email listed on your account. When you put in an alt email, and that email is already in use, it wipes out all information on the current account. So again please leave alt email blank, do not put in another email.

Thank you, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at jjanuzzi@stjudejaguars. org.
