Theme of Catholic Schools Week applies to St. James the Apostle
Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed; four great words to describe the students of Catholic Schools all over our country. These same words, the theme for Catholic Schools Week this year also describe well the students of St. James the Apostle Catholic School.
Daily learning at St. James starts with Morning Assembly in the school gym attended by all students preK-3 through eighth grade along with faculty, staff and many parents and grandparents. The morning assembly provides the opportunity for our school family to pray together as we start the day and to hear the morning message including scripture readings, and other stories with life lessons to apply at school and home.
St. James the Apostle Catholic School is a Christ-centered community where children can grow in faith, values of service and academic excellence. Service is an integral part of life at St. James. Students are dedicated to helping each other in the classroom, on the playground and during our weekly liturgies when buddy classes sit together to pray and worship better. Our students are active in serving in church even on the weekends as commentators, lectors and altar servers.
Student leaders at St. James can be found throughout the school taking on classroom jobs, as members of the Student Council and National Junior Honor Society and many other after school clubs and activities. Our students also take the initiative to lead their family and friends to God.
Our students succeed in becoming better persons, students, and athletes gradually each and every day. They have placed in academic and art competitions in recent years. Our sports teams have had successful seasons even resulting in becoming champions in multiple sports.
Come Learn. Serve. Lead. Succeed with us at St. James the Apostle School.
