Parent Teacher Organization (PTO)


Mission Statement:

The mission of the St. Jude PTO is to bring parents and teachers together to provide a learning experience which ensures that all students have the opportunity to achieve their highest potential within a Catholic education.

Letter from the PTO President:

Dear St. Jude Families,

Welcome to the 2024-2025 school year! As a parent with a child attending St. Jude, you are automatically part of our PTO. We strive to support and work hand-in-hand with the parents, staff, administration and clergy to provide a faith-filled, fun and positive environment for our children. 

There are many activities and events that PTO organizes throughout the year and we encourage you to be part of it! Your participation is greatly appreciated and essential to making our PTO a successful organization. We also have many fundraising opportunities that provide funds to support all the needs and activities planned throughout the year. Please consider donating your time and resources.

Monthly PTO meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at 7 pm in the Parish Center. If you would like to know more about how you can become involved, please feel free to reach out to me at Ptopresident @stjudebulldogs.org. We look forward to seeing you!



Lori Tranter
