A Message from the Head of School – 11/17/17
Dear Saint James Family,
During this season of gratitude, we have much to be thankful for at Saint James School. As we come to school each day, all of us can list many ways in which our school family enriches our lives. When I walk around campus, I experience the momentum of gratitude. Each day, students, parents, and teachers share with me stories of how the Saint James has impacted their lives and how grateful they are to be part of our vibrant learning community and caring family. Saint James School has made a transformational difference in my life and in the lives of thousands of people.
As you reflect on what you are thankful for, I imagine there any many things associated with Saint James that come to mind. When I begin to think about all I am grateful for at Saint James School the list quickly becomes quite long. I would like to share just a few of the things for which I am thankful.
First and foremost, I am grateful for the opportunity to mentor and develop our students. Saint James believes that each of our students possesses worlds of potential and our faculty, staff, and school leaders are enthusiastic about helping each child discover his or her talents and gifts. As our students complete 12th grade and go out into the world beyond Saint James, we are proud of the great work they continue to do to make the most of their opportunities and make an impact for good.
Our extraordinary faculty, staff, and school leaders inspire me and fill me with gratitude. Saint James School is comprised of educators who care deeply about our students and are passionate about working with children and about their subject areas and grade levels. Because of the expertise and hard work of our faculty and staff, we offer an extraordinary and well-rounded education that includes an incredible array of enrichment and extracurricular activities for our students. It is inspiring and astonishing to see and experience the work our teachers, coaches, program directors, school leaders, and staff do every day for our students!
I am also thankful for our parents and grandparents and the partnership we have with you in developing, encouraging, and building up our students. Your involvement within our school makes the Saint James Family a special community for us all. As we work together, this special school community enriches the lives of each person who is part of it. The collective positive energy of our school family builds up all of us, and that fills me with gratitude to be part of Saint James Family.
Most of all, I am deeply grateful to be a part of the talented team of educators that make Saint James a special place—a learning community that values and cares for each individual child and keeps our students at the heart of all that we do. We are grateful to you for entrusting your children to us.
Saint James School wishes you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving!
We are Saint James School!
