  • We urge students with Apple watches to review the letter sent home to parents and remind our students to leave them in their lockers during the day.  You cannot wear your Apple watch while school is in session.
  • Cubbies have been installed in the cafeteria for our students to store their books during lunch period periods only. These are not lockers and belongings must be removed promptly after lunch and recess. 
  • Attention Math-A-Thon participants - There is no better feeling than knowing a child has time to be a child. Thank you for being a hero to the children at St. Jude’s.  You should be working on your fun-book.  All fun-books should be completed by March 10th.

  • Only 3 days left for our Pennies for Patients campaign, and every donation makes a difference! Remember, the top fundraising MAP has a chance to win a pizza party.  This week, challenge yourself to talk to two people like an older sister, an uncle, or a grandparent about Pennies for Patients.  Who knows?  Maybe that person will decide to donate a few dollars for you to bring back to your classroom’s box or make an online donation at studentseries.org.
