St. Jude Family,
Welcome everyone to a great 2018-2019 school year! Thank you for all you have done thus far to ensure that your students are on time to school and prepared to learn. Our theme for this school year is “Be a Wake Walker.” This theme is inspired by Matthew 14: 22-33, which also inspired our theme song WaveWalker by Citizen Way. This song is about taking a step of faith and following Jesus wherever He leads. We attended Mass as a school on our first day of school and Father Michael continued the beautiful tradition of blessing the school – as he blessed the students along the way. Parents are invited to join us every Wednesday at the noon Mass. God Bless,
