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! While this has been a year unlike any other in our school’s 97 years of operation, we hope your family has been able to experience and enjoy some of the silver linings that have come out of the pandemic.
