St. Jude the Apostle School
is growing 21st Century Learners!

 

The St. Jude the Apostle Technology Committee, along with the approval of our pastor, Fr. Jim, has made great progress on the school’s long-range technology plan. All of this has been made possible by the on-going and amazing fundraising efforts of our St. Jude parents.  We have just  completed leases of laptops with Dell and Lenovo and with the help of a loan from the parish, just purchased 130 new Lenovo laptops.
