Dear St Jude families and friends,

The art projects have been pouring in and we're all amazed at the talent of our students! Along with Wednesday's ART Exhibit, we have a busy week with our Canned Food Drive and Open House preparations!

Step-Up Day Recap & Middle School Info Night

Our 5th grade students had the chance to participate in our first ever Step Up Day! Every student was personally paired up with a Junior High student to shadow for the day. Students had the chance to rotate classes, participate in our JAG period class, have lunch and then participate in some team building exercises with Mrs. Schultze. We have a lot of exciting things going on in our Junior High and we hope that every student enjoyed their day! 

There will be a parent meeting on February 16th at 4 pm in the science lab for all 5th grade parents to learn more about our Junior High and what they can look forward to next year. We hope you can all join us!

Becoming Catholic

Are you interested in becoming Catholic?  The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which people can question, search and inquire into the Catholic faith.  At St. Jude, members of our parish partner with those who are journeying to become fully initiated Catholics (Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation).  We recognize that people are in all different places in their journey and we are here to help you in any way we can. for more information.
