PTO Meeting Minutes (2020-2021)
Letter from the PTO President
I want to welcome prospective families, new families, and returning families to the St. Jude PTO! We are comprised of the parents, guardians, staff, faculty, administration, and clergy of St. Jude School and Church community. As a collective group, our mission is to work to give the students at St. Jude School opportunities that enhance their education. The foremost method to accomplish this is by raising money to help support those needs.
This past year we were able to offer funds for the following items:
- Cover the cost of one field trip each year for each student*
- Support faculty in continuing education
- New tables in the classrooms for collaborative work
- New student and eighth grade yard signs
- School spirit shirts for all students and staff
Without your support during the year, none of these items would be possible!
During the 2020-2021 school year, St. Jude PTO is committed to assisting the staff and students in whatever unique needs the school encounters as we best approach the COVID-19 pandemic recommendations and changes. I would urge you to find ways to get involved in the PTO. We are all working towards a common goal. That goal, simply stated, is creating a better school and better educational experience for our children. We strive to create an atmosphere where teachers, administrators, and support staff can do their best work – and so can our children. Please reach out to any of the board members; attend our meetings, or volunteer to help. Our school community will continue to thrive with the families that choose St. Jude for school.
On behalf of the St. Jude PTO, I would once again like to extend a warm welcome and best wishes for a successful school year! Please contact me, or anyone on the board, with questions or comments. Thank you for your continued support!
*During the spring of 2020, some PTO sponsored events, programs and field trips were cancelled due to COVID-19.
