  • Parking Lot Safety

    Please remember that there are a lot of moving vehicles in the parking lot.  For safety, please be sure that you walk beside your children as they cross the parking lot.  Children are still learning important parking lot safety rules and they need your example right beside them.  As well, this will help prevent unfortunate accidents that could happen if children are moving in a space where cars are also moving.  Thank you in advance for your assistance with this.

  • Social Media

    Have you checked out the new school social media?  Follow us on Facebook (St. James and St. Ann’s School) and Instagram (stjameselementary).  At the bottom of the website you can click on the links for both of these.  Facebook and Instagram are regularly updated with current information and photos.  It is a great way to see what is going on at St. James and St. Ann’s School.  

  • Movie Night

    A very special thank you to Nicola Humphreys and all of the many volunteers that make up the PFA.  With their leadership and your support, our first Movie Night of the year raised over $2700!  Thank you to everyone who helped make this evening a success!  We are hoping to host another Family Movie Night in 2023.  We hope you can join us for our next Movie Night!
