Happy new year and welcome back for the new semester! We are happy to see our students back on campus! As we begin a new decade at Saint James, I have been looking ahead to the future with great enthusiasm! Over the last few weeks, in my anticipation of the future, I have also had some moments for reflection and for looking back.
We have been focusing on how much our language matters! I have been energized as I have seen the power of our words and actions throughout our campus. Thank you to Felicia Arnold, Zach Beard, and Jenni Wingard--and to everyone on our faculty and staff--for building up our students through your leadership in your words and in your actions!
Safety is in all things our highest priority and responsibility. For years, our school has maintained a focus on the safety of our students and everyone on our campus and within our school community. Our focus on safety remains today and will continue in the future. Our efforts to promote a healthy, safe, and supportive school environment that nurtures the developmental, learning, physical, personal, and emotional growth and well-being of our students are comprehensive and continually in progress—and are carried out with thoughtful research and reflection and with great care.
