St. Jude Family,
Welcome back to school! We are so excited for the start of the school year at St. Jude! We have a lot of added excitement to the start of this school year because of some physical improvements that are taking place on our campus. We have a number of folks to thank! Thanks to our student council we have a new basketball hoop added to our playground equipment. Many thanks to Jim Ryan (parishioner) and Dan Fennell (alumni parent & parishioner) for all of their work on the sidewalk and installation of the Basketball Hoop. Our Parent Board supported the addition of new mulch to the playground and will help with the resurfacing of the playground area at which point we will paint some new games on the ground for our students to play (i.e. hopscotch, four-square, etc). Thanks to the Knights of Columbus, who were also busy at the school installing new screens in the windows, painting and repairing the entry doors and a number of other needed projects. Our gratitude to Meredith Spesia and Tom Rooney who were hard at work updating the hall outside the music room, and Lisa, Matt and Steven Widlowski who painted the main entry hall. Lastly, we broke ground on an outdoor classroom last week as a result of the success of our Believe Benefit over the last several years. I hope all of your students are enjoying the start of the school year.
