“We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!”
On behalf of the staff of St. Jude School, I would like to wish each of our families a most blessed Christmas. In the rush and chaos of the coming days, I hope you are able to steal away some moments of peace and rejuvenation. It is our prayer that families find time to be together in joy and laughter. For those for whom Christmas is a painful reminder of loved ones lost, may the love of Christ bring you warmth and comfort. For the students, we hope you will experience the joy and excitement of Christmas while remembering to be grateful for the many blessings you have received.
STUDENTS AT ST. JUDE SCHOOL GET INTO THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT
Students across the grades got their creative minds flowing as they built edible Christmas winter scenes. Students worked with their buddy classes and fun was had by all.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY
On behalf of administrative staff, support staff, and the teachers, I would like to thank our parents for the kind gifts and wishes of a Merry Christmas! We are very grateful to work in such a warm community!
NO NEWSLETTERS OVER THE CHRISTMAS BREAK
The administration will not be producing newsletters over the Christmas break. The next scheduled newsletter will be for January 10, 2019. A couple of reminders then for the first week back:
- The Office is closed from Dec 21st to the morning of January 6th.
- The first day of school after the Christmas Break is January 6th.
- Snow closures, if snow is in the forecast, will be announced through Remind, MailChimp, the Website, and Facebook. Sign up for REMIND by clicking here.
- There are no Basketball Practices over Christmas Break – they will resume in the first week back.
- We have our Book Fair at the end of January, which coincides with our 3 Way Conferences on January 30th.

MUNCHALUNCH IS COMING TO ST. JUDE SCHOOL
St. Jude School is modernizing its hot lunch ordering. Over the past several months we have noticed several inefficiencies with our hot lunch ordering. First, paper orders can be forgotten by students and can be lost between school and home. Second, parents are liable to forget if they have ordered because the order forms are kept at the school and it is difficult to remember if you ordered or not. Third, the sheer volume of orders results in a lot of paperwork by the office and our parent volunteers, which can lead to errors. We believe Munchalunch will allow us to eliminate most if not all of these inefficiencies.
Several other Catholic elementary schools use Munchalunch as a platform for managing their hot lunch program. With Munchalunch, orders are completed online. You can pay online and receive an email confirmation of your order. The school is able to better process the orders and ensure accuracy in delivery. In January, parents will receive instructions about how to set up an account and order hot lunch for your child(ren).
We hope you are as excited as we are about Munchalunch coming to St. Jude!
