St. James Sunday
Sunday,February 1 at 10:30 a.m.
Please join us for St. James Sunday, where St. James and our scholars will be honored and recognized at the Church of the Good Shepherd Sunday service. This is an important day for both the School and the Church. We have a wonderful partnership through the sharing of our buildings, our community, and our mission. The Church wants to recognize and celebrate our scholars and this is our opportunity to say THANK YOU to the parishioners of the Church of the Good Shepherd for supporting us. We would like to have EVERY scholar in attendance at the 10:30 service on February 1st. Every scholar IN ATTENDANCE will be given a FREE, one-of-a-kind St. James T-Shirt and a free homework pass! On St. James Sunday, every scholar will be given a T-Shirt order form to fill out and give right back to me. We will order shirts only for those scholars who come to church that day. Parents (with scholars) in attendance may buy the one-of-a-kind shirts for themselves that day only. This is exciting! We would love for every scholar to be recognized that day! Please make plans now to join us.

Annual Giving - "Investing in Traditions" Campaign
Is Under Way!
Our Annual Giving Campaign is off to a great start this year, with over 7o families having already given, along with all of the Board Members, Friends of St. James Board, and Faculty! This year we are striving for 100% participation by ALL our parents, to show our great support for St. James and the fantastic education and experience that our scholars receive here! In order to reach 100% participation, we need approximately 80 more families to commit. Is that YOU?
The Annual Giving Campaign is designed to cover the gap between the cost of tuition and the amount of what it actually costs to educate our children. Your tuition dollars fund approximately 77% of our budget. The Annual Giving Campaign goal of $125,000 will fund approximately 6% of our budget, and the balance is derived from other revenue sources. Please help us make up this IMPORTANT 6% of our budget this year.
Please give today, by going online to our website at www.sjes.org. Under the Giving tab is an online pledge form and an Annual Fund page. To make a pledge, complete the Pledge Form and submit. Pledges can be paid over time, by cash, check, or credit card. To pay by credit card, follow the “Give Now” prompts under Annual Fund. All donations amounts are private and tax deductible.
Thank you for making St. James a leader in education and foundation of excellence essential to our children’s futures!
