St. Jude School
October 12th 2018
From the Principal
As we approach our first school break, I wanted to take a moment to thank the parents. Sometimes we need to remember the small things that are so often taking for granted. Packing a lunch, remembering the bookbag, remembering the gym clothes, dropping off the forgotten Chromebook, grudgingly offering to volunteer in your spare time in spite of the millions of things going on in your life. We are all in this together as a school community. Our success is a result of working together for the good of all students. Take the long weekend to ENJOY your family. Create memories, be thankful for what you have instead of worrying all those things you have no control over. God bless all of you!
Mrs. Molly Hibler.

It's Box Top Time
2018-19 Box Top Submission deadlines are November 1 and March 1, so please keep those dates in mind as there are expiration dates on the box tops. Ideally, class collections in October and February to prepare for submission dates, bundled if you can in groups of 50 using an envelope or Ziploc type bag. Expired Box tops cannot be included for credit, so please remove these before sending into the classroom. Classroom contest for the most collected so make sure homeroom number is on submissions. PTO appreciates family effort/support as the money earned for the school will help fund school projects and events. Check out the BOX-Top Bonus App to earn even more for the school. This app is in addition to the code on products. Your store receipt can be uploaded for bonus points. Log into https://www.boxtops4education.com/ to learn more.
