St. Jude Family,
Over the course of this year, our 8th graders have been working hard on their Science Fair projects. Ten of our students represented us at the Regional Science Fair held at the University of St. Francis. Our students earned 5 gold medals, 4 silver medals and 1 bronze! Congratulations and thank you to Catelyn Pekarek, Dominic Williams, Samantha Sargent, Nathan Charley, Miranda Rosales, Samantha Ruettiger, Dylan Wheet and Joseph Krumdrick for representing St. Jude at Regionals. Joey Dziuba and Kate Martin are moving on from Regionals and will be representing us at the State competition. Congratulations!
