About Us


Dear Saint Jude Families,


It’s hard to believe we’re more than halfway through the 2022-23 school year – and what an eventful year it’s been!  Thank you for your support and involvement thus far this year. Attached is a recap of the first half of the school year - we hope you enjoy it and find it to be a helpful overview of all the PTA does to support our school community. 


Generally speaking, the majority of our fundraising efforts are in the Fall and we have been very successful this year thanks to all of you!  The money raised through these events funds our PTA Programs – including STEM Field Trips for each grade, Student Appreciation treats (Hot Chocolate, Ice Cream, etc), Saint Francis and Spiritual Life Classroom Enrichment programs, Speakers, Nativity Sets, Field Day, Donuts with Dad, Muffins with Mom, Staff Appreciation events (birthday lunches, Staff Surprises, etc), Scholarships and many more.


I feel very fortunate to be part of such a strong, faith-filled school community where we can provide these wonderful programs to our students, parents and staff and I look forward to a great 2nd half of the year.  As always, if you have any questions or concerns, or would like to get more involved with the PTA, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me or someone on the Executive Board..
