St. Jude Family,
We have had a busy week as we have entered the Lenten season. Our PreK-1st grade classes celebrated Dr. Seuss with fun activities including eating green eggs and ham. Our 7th graders completed their Mardi Gras projects and presentations and then helped our students celebrate Fat Tuesday as they left the school that day. We also held our annual Daddy Daughter Dance this past weekend. A great time was had by all! A special thank you to Mrs. Lisa Wysocki for all of her efforts in putting this memorable evening together for our female students.
