  • Care for Everyone in Our Common Home

    Advent is just around the corner and this year St. James and St. Ann’s Elementary is going to be implementing a Christmas Giving Tree. The Monday after the First Sunday of Advent (December 4th) staff, parents, and students will notice a Christmas tree in our school foyer. The tree will have a variety of cards on it. Each card will represent some form of charitable deed. It may be to bring in food for St. Vincent de Paul. It may be to bring in a brand new toy for a family in need. It may be new clothing or new toiletries for the homeless. The hope is that families will take a card and complete the charitable act on the card. Once a card is taken and the items brought in, an ornament will be placed on the tree. Once all the cards have been taken and replaced with ornaments we will have a beautifully decorated tree that will be a symbol of the charitable acts our school community completed to prepare for Christmas. We hope that parents will involve their children in completing the charitable deed and this way we can teach and remind our children about the true spirit and meaning of Christmas. 

  • Extra Yarn?

    As part of living their Faith and preparing for Confirmation, the Gr. 7 students would like to knit some hats for the homeless. They are asking for yarn donations. If anyone has any yarn around that they would be willing to donate please bring it to the Office and we will ensure it makes its way to the Gr. 7 class.

  • Thunderwear Thursday

    On Thursday, November 30, we will have Thunderwear Thursday! This when students can wear their St. James and St. Ann’s Thunder clothing in place of uniform items. If you are new to our school and have questions about Thunderwear please email your classroom teacher.
