Give-With-Target-logo2This year, Target will give money to schools all over the country for one simple act: a vote. Our school needs just 25 votes to earn a $25 donation from Tar-get. But that's only the beginning. For each additional vote, our school will get $1 more. So please remember that, although the gesture is small, the rewards are potentially huge.

Go to GiveWith.Target.com to vote for St. Jude School once a week through September 21 or until Target has given away all $5 million.

id000128Mr. Schulz recently informed our principal, Steve Donndelinger, that he has finally made the decision to retire after 52 years in the teaching profession with over 22 years at St. Jude. His decision was made after considerable reflection and Steve honored his request not to share this information until the conclusion of the school year. Being the humble person that he always is, Mr. Schulz wished to avoid much of the public acknowledgment and celebration that often comes with such an event.
