Sabers Win on Senior Night

Save the Date: SJS Foundation Golf Event

Please save the date for the 26th Annual Saint James School Foundation Golf Classic & Dinner which will be held on Wednesday, May 13th at Manchester Country Club.

The Saint James School Foundation is a privately run endowment fund providing over $100,000 each year to Saint James School in support of our financial aid program, ongoing technology upgrades, and our school’s Margin of Excellence programs. Last year, the foundation donated over $150,000 to Saint James School!  Each year, the Foundation holds a golf tournament and dinner in support of their mission.

This annual event is a lot of fun with a great mixture of current SJS parents, former SJS parents, and SJS alumni.   More details will be coming shortly.

Mercy High School Program

Mercy High School has asked us to share the following information with our families:

“Discover Mercy” is a morning program offered for fifth, sixth and seventh grade girls and their parents to get a first look at Mercy by enjoying activities, student performances and informal conversations with Mercy students, parents, alumnae, administrators and faculty. The event is scheduled for Saturday, March 21, 2020 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

During “Discover Mercy,” girls have the opportunity to spend time in the classrooms with faculty and students while attending “classes” such as Beginners Yoga, Creative Writing, French Cuisine, Mad about Math, and Theater Arts Workshop to name a few options. All of the choices are listed on the registration page. Here is the link: Discover Mercy. Meanwhile, parents may attend an informal question and answer session and participate in programs designed especially for them.

Following the morning program, everyone is invited to lunch in the cafeteria and experience a performance by the cast of the Mercy/Xavier Musical Mamma Mia!  Mercy Student Ambassadors are available to lead tours of the school at any time during the morning, including a stop at the school store.
