SJS HSA Gives: St. Baldrick’s Update

Hello SJS students and families!

A quick HSA GIVES update on our upcoming St. Baldrick’s event: the Sabers Team has raised almost $1,100!  We are looking for more people to sign up to shave/buzz or just sign up and fund-raise (choose volunteer on our team page, get your own page and ask people to donate) to meet our team goal of $5,000.

Another option is to go to the team page and donate online.  St. Baldrick events like ours have already raised over $16 million this year – you can easily see how a little bit from a lot of people can really make an impact!

If you can, we encourage you to come to the event on April 8th at the Hilton Mystic to cheer on our 34 (and still counting!) shavees/buzzers — the spirit of generosity and enthusiasm will certainly make your day.  Head shaving starts at 2:30pm and let’s not forget the raffles!  Anyone who signs up with our team and raises $10 or more, will get a St Baldrick’s wristband, a button, and some cool stickers.  If you raise $50 or more you will also get a St Baldrick’s t shirt!  In order to have your t shirt at the event, you need to sign up no later than Sunday, March 25th.  Those who sign up after this date will still get t shirts, but they will come in after April 8th.  Pediatric cancers claim the life of a child every two minutes.  Join us in funding new treatments to give kids a better chance to beat this beast.

Due Tomorrow: Soccer Paperwork

It’s time to sign up for the 2018 Saint James Soccer season!  Boys and girls in grades 3 through 8 are eligible to play.  The season runs from early April through mid June.  If your child is planning to participate, please click on the link below to read the detailed information from Coach Sargent.  The sign-up form should be returned to the school office with the appropriate activity fee (make checks out to “Saint James School”) by Friday, March 23rd.  If your child has not previously participated in a sport at SJS this year, you will need to also submit the Athletics Health Form for 2017-2018 (see below).

Please note – we are in need of coaches, particularly for the younger grades (you do not have to have a child playing to coach). To volunteer or if you have any questions about the program, please contact Jon Sargent via telephone at 440-319-8892 or email:

Family Movie Night & Grinders

Join in the fun at Family Movie Night on Friday, April 6 in the school gym.  It will be a great way to kick-off April vacation with friends! Please see this flyer for details on how to sign up for movie night.  We hope you can make it!


We know grabbing dinner beforehand can be a challenge so we are teaming up with Mike’s Pizzeria and offering you the opportunity to pre-order grinders which will be waiting for you when you arrive at movie night.  Follow this link to order grinders.  You can order even if you are not attending the movie!

End of School Update

As you know, this has been a very unusual year in terms of the amount of snow days we have incurred.  We have been watching each week as a new storm comes into the forecast and have wanted to see signs of spring before we determined/communicated how we would account for all the missed days.  Thank you for your patience.

Barring any further weather events cancelling school, our last day of school here at Saint James will be Friday, June 22nd.

We will have full-day sessions on Monday and Tuesday of that week, with early dismissal (12:05pm) on Wednesday (June 20th), Thursday (June 21st), and Friday (June 22nd).

Aftercare WILL be in session on all three of the 12:05pm dismissal days.

There will not be any snow days made up during April vacation as many families (and staff) have travel plans.

The extra week of school in June does impact our summer program and we will communicate over the next few days what the changes to that program will look like.
