About Us



Dear Saint Jude Families,
My name is Eleanor Cates. I will be serving as your PTA President alongside my husband Nathaniel. The PTA Executive Board has been working hard all summer to prepare for the new school year. At Saint Jude, our kids get a foundation that prepares them for all that life has to offer. We know our kids are going to excel at Saint Jude, but we also want to encourage parents to get involved as well.


We have a wonderful organization within our school known as the Parent Teacher Alliance. The PTA was created to encourage parental involvement, and it’s the dedication of our parents that makes Saint Jude School such a unique environment. So, what does the Parent Teacher Alliance DO? 
 Promote Parental Involvement
 Sponsor Community Activities and Events
 Provide School Related Services
 Raise Funds for Improvements, Equipment, and Enrichment Programs
 A Vehicle of Communication between Parents, Administration and Faculty

Below are the parents who serve on this year’s PTA Board. This group of amazing people oversees over thirty-five PTA Committees and events.
