of the Week
Thank you to everyone that donated their Halloween candy to the SJES Candy Buy Back! We collected 49.2 pounds of candy that will be sent to our Troops over seas. A big thank you to Amigo Children’s Dentistry for overseeing that process and for their donation to Mrs. Finley's class service project, St. Jude’s Children's Hospital. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Service Learning at St. James
Community service is an important part of our program here at St. James. Each classroom has a service project that they give to every year. We have service-learning projects that help both locally and abroad. The teachers show the students what giving looks like by having them go Christmas caroling, send letters, gifts, provide food donations, restock shelves, and give monetary donations. All of these methods of giving teach our students how to be aware of others who are in need. Listed below is each class and their service-learning project. We appreciate parents and students for the time their give to support our teachers with these amazing outreaches here at St. James.
