Letter from the Principal

Dear Families and Students,

Welcome to St. Jude! St. Jude is a parish Catholic school where parents, teachers, and students work together in an engaging and values-based environment to help students reach their full potential, becoming contributing members of their families, community, society, and the Catholic Church.

We offer a 9-year (grades K through 8) sequential program wherein children are recognized for their unique individual worth, and encouraged, directed and assisted in their growth toward maturity. The integration of our religious faith is emphasized in developing the whole child spiritually, intellectually, physically and socially.

We are a community within the greater parish membership. The strength of that community: exhibited by our many events, our highly involved PTO, and robust volunteer base, provides a solid foundation for your child’s educational experience. If not for the efforts of our parents and the commitment of our staff, St. Jude would not be the school it is today.

If you are considering joining the St. Jude School and Parish family, we encourage you to talk to as many people as you can in our community about our school and feel free to ask any questions. Please contact me personally if you’d like to set up a tour. We look forward to meeting you.

Peace and Blessings,

Lou Eichhold
