THERE ARE SO MANY WAYS TO SUPPORT OUR SCHOOL

We, the people of St. Jude Parish and the Diocese of Knoxville, are called by the Father to live God's word and to continuously grow in faith, hope and love.

As Catholics, we proclaim the good news of Jesus. As a loving and caring community, we seek to strengthen our bonds with all Catholics and set an example for all brothers and sisters in Christ through our prayerful actions.

With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we commit our talents and resources to provide for the spiritual and physical needs of our parish and the greater Chattanooga community. Calling on the Spirit to help us grow in our understanding of the work He entrusts to us, we members of the parish pledge to be an active force in carrying out this mission. 

As the largest ministry of St. Jude Parish, St. Jude School is supported with prayer and treasure by all of the members of our parish. With an affordable tuition rate, offering families a real opportunity to experience the gift of Catholic parochial education, our church subsidizes the education of our students. We are blessed to be a part of this loving community. 

In April, 2013, St. Jude Parish completed payment on the debt of the Family Life Center. As a parish, including our school, it continues to be fiscally sound and is grateful for the donation of the treasure, time and talents of its members and school families. 

To discuss ways to support St. Jude Parish and its school, please contact Kathie Preston, Development Director, (423) 877-6022. 

 

BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION

Click Here to see the products that participate in the Box Tops program!

The Box-Tops for Education program allows us to cash in box tops from General Mills products for 10 cents each.  Annually, this can add several hundred dollars to the operating budget.  Small collection boxes are provided in all classrooms, in the back of the church and a large collection bin is located in the main school building.  Please trim your "Box-Tops" so that there is no additional portion of the label included.  This will help hold down our postage cost. For a complete list of all participating Box Tops products, click here. 

If you register at Box Tops for Education, then you can enter St. Jude each month to win Bonus Box Tops through the promotional/coupon area.  

We earned almost $2000 last year!! Thank you St. Jude!!!

CAMPBELL'S LABELS FOR EDUCATION

We continue this program for this year, even after it is winding down. Please click here for information. 

As of August 1, 2016, only UPCs with the Labels for Education logo will be accepted and redeemed for points into registered schools’ bank account. We have begun the process of removing the logo and expect there will be a limited number of products that contain these labels in stores through August 1, 2017. Once all Labels for Education logos have been removed from the products, UPCs will no longer be accepted. The banked points schools have accumulated will not be affected. 

FOOD CITY SCHOOL BUCKS

We recently received a check for over $2100, the second largest award in this region. Please continue to support this worthwhile endeavor while doing your everyday shopping. 

For the 2016-2017 school year, Food City will donate $700,000 in cash through the Food City School Bucks program. The points our school earns will help grow our St. Jude share of the $700,000 total. It's like a pie - the size of our school's slice will depend on how many points we receive. REGISTER YOUR VALUECARD FOR THE SCHOOL BUCKS PROGRAM. 

PUBLIX PARTNERS

Through Publix Partners, all purchases made at Publix will help earn money for our school. For every $37,500 spent cumulatively by our school's participants, Publix will award us $250. Be sure to pick up your St. Jude School Publix Partners card at area Publix stores, and grab a few for neighbors and friends to use as well!
