Parents' Association

HOW YOU CAN HELP US
FACULTY & STAFF APPRECIATION:
This committee purchases birthday and gift cards to give to the faculty and staff of Saint James School. New teachers receive a gift bag each summer to welcome them to the community. Every Christmas, members give teachers movie candy and movie tickets. At Prize Day, faculty and staff are recognized for milestone years of service accomplished at SJS. This committee also presents each member of the graduating class with the traditional school key chain featuring the alumni crest with their engraved initials.

CAMPUS DECORATIONS:
Several times throughout the year a group of SJS parents meet to beautify the campus. Several volunteers are needed on decorating days.
