Dear Saint James Parents & Friends,
It’s a Great Year to be a Saint James Trojan! On behalf of the Saint James Parent Association (PA), I want to personally welcome you to the 2019-2020 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. So join us!! Come to a meeting and jump in!!
We have assembled a wonderful team of parents who are committed to working on programs and projects all year on behalf of the wonderful students we have at Saint James. Our PA goals in pulling these parents together centered around these 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 1
- Offering diverse volunteer opportunities (click here to download the PA 2019-2020 volunteer ops)
to involve as many different parents as we can
- Utilizing the strengths, skills, talents, and passions of our parents
We have long-standing school traditions, as well as several new school events that you can be a part of! Check out the attached volunteer form to read about Fall Festival, Sunset on the Quad, Trojan Day, and so many more school sponsored events! And be sure to ask about the new opportunities for parents and grandparents on campus including the Spirit Club, Grandparents Club, Dads Club, parent representatives, and parent education committees. You can even volunteer to sit with your child's class during lunch so their teacher gets a little lunch break! There is truly something for everyone through our Parent Association!
It is with great enthusiasm that I announce the 2019-2020 Saint James School Parent Association Board:
President Elect - Mary Pool
Secretary - Kristen McLendon
Treasurer - Katherine Akin
Past President/Board Adviser - Alecia Brightwell
STJ Representatives - Amy Able and Elizabeth Hawke
Look for more information about our schedule of meetings! Join the conversation and volunteer at school!
We are Trojans 24/7!
We are Saint James School!
President, Parent Association
