This Strategic Plan represents the product of the Shrine of St. Jude Catholic School Marketing Development Team (MDT). The MDT met over the course of the 2008/2009 school year working on various issues important to our school. The primary product of the MDT is this St. Jude Catholic School (SJCS)Strategic Plan. Additional critical products instrumental in the creation of this Plan are:
Our Mission: St. Jude Catholic School educates the whole child, delivering academic excellence within a Catholic community of faith.
St. Jude will be recognized as a school unique in its academic excellence, Catholic identity, contributions to the community, financial stability, and bright view of the future.
Our Tag Line:
“Catch Our Spirit”
There were also other issues and events that were addressed by this team, including supporting the Catholic Schools Week Open House and starting a sub-group known as the Financial Freedom Team (FFT). The FFT in turn, with the approval of the MDT, initiated the annual Offertory Collection and the Parish Auction Night both for the benefit of St. Jude's School.
When reading this plan it is very obvious that its success is related to the involvement of many others outside the membership of the MDT. These "others" include the School Advisory Board, Home and School Association, and individuals selected based on their talents and ability to contribute to this plan.
The successful outcome of any planning effort is directly related to the commitment on the part of those involved in its implementation. The successful implementation of the Shrine of St. Jude Catholic School's Strategic Plan is no different. It is totally dependent of the generous contribution of the time and talents of each volunteering person.
