Friends of St. James

The Friends of St. James is an organization which promotes the interest and endeavors of St. James Episcopal School. Parent volunteers meet the first Tuesday of the month to help plan events to support our teachers and our School. Every family is a member of the Friends of St. James. Your tuition includes the annual membership dues of $10. “Friends” (as it is often called) offers many opportunities for parent participation in the projects that enhance the learning environment and benefit St. James.
