Welcome to St. Jude of the Lake Catholic School

St. Jude of the Lake School is a vibrant, high-performing Catholic community for students in kindergarten through grade 5. We are dedicated to our students’ intellectual, personal and spiritual development, and we demonstrate this through our small class sizes, our faith-based curriculum, our technology-driven academics, and our top-ranking performance with state education standards.

Currently, St. Jude of the Lake School is the only Catholic International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program School in the Midwest. As such, we are recognized for our well-rounded curriculum that fully prepares students for their future, for being on the leading edge of Catholic elementary education, and for investing in our future and the future of our students.

Uniform Expectations

At St. Jude of the Lake, our uniform is a visual sign of our school community. Students in uniform gain a sense of pride in themselves and their school. In addition, the uniform may help build self-confidence and respect, and direct a focus on learning.
Clothing must be neat, clean, and in good repair. Neatness and cleanliness will be expected at all times. This includes, but is not limited to, having shirts tucked in and buttoned completely with the exception of the top button.

Winter Preparedness

Winter Weather Preparedness for Schools

Children can be especially susceptible to the dangers associated with winter weather.  Their youthful enthusiasm often takes over when common sense and safety should prevail.  Parents should stay informed of winter weather and school closings by listening to daily reports on local radio or television stations.
Parents please review the following winter safety tips with your children who walk to and from bus stops or school.

  • Dress appropriately for cold weather:  sweaters, pants, winter coats, hats, scarves, socks and boots.
  • When you bundle up, keep your line of vision open to look out for traffic and other hazards
  • Allow extra travel time to get to the bus stop or school
  • Wear bright jackets or coats so bus drivers can easily see you in the morning or evening
  • Stand at least 10 steps away (or back) from bus stops.  Buses need extra room to stop - you could fall and slip into the roadway and be at risk of being struck by a vehicle
  • Do not cross the street at your bus stop until all traffic has come to a complete stop and the bus driver has signaled that it is safe to cross.
