St. Jude Family,
I am excited to announce that after a long search and lots of prayers I have found a Kindergartener teacher, Jill Ryan. Mrs. Ryan is working alongside Mrs. Jostes this week to ensure a smooth transition for our Kindergarten students.
Mrs. Ryan is no stranger to St. Jude School as she taught the 4th and 5th grade from 1995 until 2002. She also held the 1st grade classroom aide position and stayed on as a substitute thereafter. Mrs. Ryan currently has two children attending St. Jude and her eldest is an alumnus. Mrs. Ryan has volunteered in the Athletic Department since her family has attended here.
We also take this time to THANK Mrs. Jostes for stepping in to her much beloved teaching position during our search. To our Kindergarten parents, we thank you for your patience and understanding during this interviewing process. Please be sure to attend Curriculum Night tonight (see below for dates & time) to meet and welcome our Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Jill Ryan.
