Parents are the beloved “backbone” of Sts. Simon & Jude School! We “HEART” our SSJ parents, and offer many online tools to assist you with your child’s education. Our parents hold leadership roles on our School Advisory Council, Parent-Faculty Association, and Auction Committee. They also assist us as Room Parents, and volunteer to help in classrooms and on special projects and field trips. The parent friendships made here have lasted lifetimes!read more
In addition to excellence in the academic realm, Sts. Simon & Jude School offers an abundance of involvement opportunities to our students both spiritually and socially. We have extracurricular sports, student government, CJSF, and a variety of after-school clubs and classes. The safety and happiness of your child is our number one priority at SSJ. Students assume many responsibilities at SSJ to prepare them for success in high school and beyond, such as public speaking at assemblies, supervising “school families” of all grade levels, and preparing prayers and liturgies throughout the year. They leave SSJ to become successful and competent leaders in their respective high schools!read more
