Early September heat can wreak havoc in classrooms aimed on learning and school work. The recent heat wave was no exception here in Mountain Top. But the Saint Jude School faculty had a solution, and it came in the form of a little sugar and a whole lot of ice. Principal Sister Ellen and staff/faculty members Mrs. Baran and Mr. Bayley scooped up some sweet treats as they passed out snow cones to the entire student body with the aim of keeping those kids cool. Students enjoyed a break from learning as they sipped and ate, sharing laughs and colored tongues along the way.
