Welcome Back - it is so great to see everyone back on campus! On behalf of the Saint James School Parent Association (PA), I want to extend a warm welcome to each of you for this 2020-2021 school year. Whether you are a new family on campus, transitioning to a new division, or returning for yet another great year, we are thrilled to have you as part of the Saint James family and look forward to connecting with you! As an STJ parent, you are automatically a member of the Parent Association through tuition.
We are a group of parents who are committed to working on programs and projects all year on behalf of the wonderful students we have at Saint James. In doing so, our goals have centered around the following tenets:
Building a strong community of parents to support school initiatives and the education of our children;
- Fostering a relationship between faculty, students, and parents;
- Giving back to the school that gives so much to our children, even from day one;
- Offering diverse volunteer opportunities (click here to download PA 2020-2021 Volunteer Ops) to involve as many parents as we can;
- Utilizing the strengths, skills, talents, and passions of our parents.
Although this year will look a little different from previous ones, we are dedicated to making it a special one for our Saint James families. We will tackle each day as it comes and offer as much flexibility and versatility as possible. Volunteering on campus may take on a different form, but the heart of it will remain the same. We are all STILL Trojans 24/7 and that will not change!
We are so blessed to have these parents continue this year as the PA board:
President Elect: Mary Pool
Secretary/Historian: Kristen McLendon
Treasurer: Katherine Akin
Be sure to join our Facebook page, so that we can keep everyone updated as the current situation evolves. In the meantime, take a look at our volunteer form and join in. There is truly something for everyone!
President, Parent Association
