Parents’ Association

How You Can Help

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.

Cookie Committee
This committee connects with other parents encouraging them to participate in one of Saint James’ most popular events for students and faculty – Cookie Day. Always held during Exam Week, you will receive an e-mail blast to arrange for cookies to be brought to campus on the Thursday of Exam Week. If you sign up for this committee, just wait for the email to come, drop off the cookies and you are done!
