Have a wonderful summer!

Summer Hours for School Office – Starting in July our school office will be closed on Mondays for the summer. Our Summer Office hours will be Tuesday through Friday from 8:00AM to 1:30PM.

Tuition Policy - Please be reminded that ALL final tuition balances were due by May 15, 2016 and our tuition policy will not allow the following if there is an outstanding balance.
-All accounts will be referred to the collection agency of Overton, Russell, Doerr and Donovan, LLP
-No school records will be transferred to any other school, including middle school if an outstanding tuition balance remains.

Wing War Team Meeting - The Wing War core team will be meeting next Friday, June 24, at 10:00 at the North Greenbush Town Park to start planning this year's event. We would love to add a fourth member to our team if anyone is interested in helping out with this fun event.

Enrichment Program for 2016-17 School Year – We are looking to enhance our curriculum and opportunities offered to our children here at St. Jude the Apostle School for the 2016/2017 school year. We are hoping to begin what we are calling an “Academic Enrichment Period” where children in grades 3-6 will be given an opportunity to learn more about and explore areas of interest that fall outside the typical 3-6 curriculum. Our plan is to hold this period once a week and to have 4 sessions where the kids can take a different class each session. Some possible classes we are looking to arrange are, but are not limited to: Introduction to the German language, robotics, US government, ballroom dance, cooking, carpentry, etc.
Here is where we need your help: We need volunteers to teach interesting and meaningful classes to our students. Are you a lawyer who is willing to teach a 10 week class on the judicial system? Do you have a retired doctor in your family that might be willing to teach a Human Body class? Is Aunt Mary an architect that would love to share her knowledge of building design with our children? We ask you to think of all the people in your child’s life that could enrich our students’ education here at St. Jude the Apostle School. If you or someone you know is willing to volunteer, please call or email Mrs. Erin Baker at 283-0333 or sjsbaker@nycap.rr.com.

June Reminders
Monday, June 27th – Summer Camp Begins

PCA 2016-17: We at the PCA have heard your concerns and we are making it our mission to make fundraising next year fun and convenient. As you all know the first fundraiser of the year is World’s Finest Chocolate. To make this process as easy as possible we will just be adding the $60 cost of the chocolate to everyone’s first tuition payment through FACTS thus alleviating the need for cash or checks needed to be in by a certain time. So everyone will receive their first box of chocolate the first week of school, this box will be paid for so when you sell the chocolate you keep the proceeds. If additional boxes are needed we will be setting up a designated day and time throughout the selling period to receive additional boxes. We hope this makes the process easier for everyone. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to myself or Mrs. Baker. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
