LIBRARY  A special thanks to everyone who supported the St. Jude School Library by shopping at the Barnes & Noble Book Fair in-store or online Nov. 3-8.  Your help was greatly appreciated!  Another Barnes & Noble Book Fair will be held in May, just in time for summer reading.

RE-ENROLLMENT FOR CURRENT STUDENTS  All St. Jude re-enrollment will be online beginning after Christmas Break; we will be sending out instructions at that time.

SCRIP NEWS  There will be no order placed for physical cards next week due to the short week  for the Thanksgiving holiday.    Remember when you are looking through the ads and planning your schedule for Black Friday shopping (or other shopping over the holiday weekend) that so many retailers participate in the Scrip program!  Get your e-cards loaded into your wallet before you head out so you can help raise money for the school through your purchases.  There will also be another Thank-Scrip-Ing Day coming up next week on Tuesday, November 20 to help us reach our goal for the holidays!!  I know everyone will be busy with Grandparents Day and spending time with family, so make sure to put a reminder on your calendar so you don't miss this opportunity to earn big rebates and credit towards your book bill for next year!!
