Grade 3 Saint Cards

Saint James School 3rd grade students have been making special Saint cards throughout the year as they learned about different Saints in religion class (typically on their respective Feast Days).  The cards, which include text about the Saint and a hand-drawn picture, were made into a special booklet which students will be bringing home shortly.

Sea Creature Reports

SJS 4th grade students recently finished researching and writing a report on an assigned sea creature, along with creating a model of their animal using recyclable materials and/or craft-related items.  Yesterday, 4th graders spent the afternoon presenting an overview of their research to students in the younger grades, including our pre-k4 students.  Amazing job Sabers!
