Have a GREAT Summer!


As another year of learning comes to a close we wish to Thank You again for choosing to be part of the Saint James School family, and for the various ways that each of you help make Saint James School such a special place! The past year has been filled with many great learning opportunities: chances for students to grow academically, spiritually, and socially.  Friendships and wonderful, lifelong memories have been made not only for the students – but for the parents and staff as well!`

We wish everyone a healthy, relaxing Summer Vacation and look forward to see you back at Saint James School on August 30th (if you are not using the SJS Summer Program, that is)!

A couple of notes/reminders:

Summer Hours:   The school office will be open M – F from 9:00am – 1:00pm.

Teacher Assignments:  Class assignments will be e-mailed the week before school starts.

Soccer Uniforms:  All soccer uniforms should have already been returned to the school or the coach.

Openings: We still have space available in some of our grades (including Kindergarten and Pre-Kindergarten) if you know anyone who is looking at school options for their child(ren).
