Hello SJS Parents,

From everyone here at St. James, we hope you have a fantastic Thanksgiving. There is a lot to be thankful for here at St. James and I want to thank you all for being a part of this Catholic community. I hope you are able to spend time with loved ones and take some time to relax.

We will see you all back in the building on Monday, November 28th where we will be entering the advent season and preparing our hearts for the coming of our Lord. 

It is a great day to be a Bulldog!

Celebrating Advent
Advent is a special time of year. Parents are tasked with passing along the awe and wonder of the season to their children. It's a tremendous opportunity for traditions that can add depth to a child's (and family's) spiritual life. We hope you can enjoy this season with your family with some of these weekly suggestions.

iReady Scores

Fall and winter iReady scores will be sent following the completion of the winter diagnostics. The fall iReady tests are given within the first weeks of school while students are still getting back into the swing of the school year. Comparing the fall and winter diagnostic will show a more accurate reflection of where your child stands academically and will show growth from the beginning of the school year.
