Friday Folders

I will begin to send home Friday Folders next Friday, September 20. Your child’s Friday Folder will contain work your child has done for the past week or so. Please look over the papers, keep them at home, sign the form inside the front cover of the folder, and return the folder to school the following Monday.

Fourth Grade Handbook

On Friday I  handed out paper copies of the Fourth Grade Handbook. Please check your child’s folder in their backpack for it this weekend.


Spirit Monkey

Spirit Monkey is a new Character Ed program that St. Jude will be using this year. Students start out by purchasing a St. Jude keychain. During the course of the year teachers will hand out Spirit Sticks  (which attach to the key chain) for positive behavior and for special events like birthdays and holidays. Let me know if you need another keychain order form.


Happy Birthday! 

Happy Birthday to Anthony!
