Listed below are a number of Home and School programs that take place at St. Jude of the Lake School. The programs/events are a way to meet other families and build our St. Jude of the Lake School community. Each of these programs/events is a success because of the volunteers that make them happen. Please see where you can lend your time and talent to help make these events possible.
Art Adventure– An opportunity for parents to be trained on art from Minneapolis Institute of Art, and directly share this information with students.
Art Fundraisers – Volunteers needed to assist the art teacher with the fall art fundraiser, such as Original Artwork, as well as help coordinate Spring Dinner artwork for silent auction.
Back to School Night – H&S assists the school with setup and decorations, as well as an H&S booth to communicate event and volunteer opportunities.
Birthday Board – H&S maintains the birthday board each month to celebrate each students birthday (or half birthdays for summer birthdays)
Book Fair– A Scholastic Book Fair is held during Catholic Schools Week to provide students with an opportunity to expand their personal collections with inexpensive quality books. This is also an opportunity to help teachers expand their classroom libraries.
Christmas Concert/Program – A social event for the community where our students perform to celebrate the magic of Christmas. H&S provides refreshments, Christmas decorations, and printed programs.
