Welcome to St. James School

Welcome to the virtual home of St. James School. Located within the borough of Danielson, Connecticut, we provide a dynamic place of learning for children in preschool through eighth grade. Within these walls, we mix Catholic values and high academic standards to create a holistic education experience. St. James School is affiliated with the St. James Parish and Norwich Diocese.

Foremost, we are a community of learners with an enduring commitment to Catholic values. We joyfully engage in service-oriented activities as a vehicle to strengthen our ties to the Catholic Church and the families we serve. We are clear in purpose as we strive to carry out our role providing compassionate service within our greater community.

We invite you to explore what St. James School has to offer.


A Message from Our Principal

Dear Families,

Happy spring! I am writing this letter to inform you of the latest news at St. James Parochial School. I encourage you to read the letter in its entirety.

On Monday, March 27, 2017, I had the opportunity to visit St. Edwards School Open House along with other Catholic Schools in the vicinity. As you know, St. Edwards is closing in June and parents are searching for the best school for their children. We have three children from St. Edwards that have already visited our school for Grade 3, 6, and 8 for next year.

A special thanks to the student council members who prepared the Mass on Thursday for my dad. My father believed in Catholic education and my sisters and I attended Catholic schools. At the time, the Catholic high school closed due to financial reason so we had to attend public education. Otherwise, my parents would have sacrificed for us to attend a Catholic high school education. Thank you for your prayers, cards, flowers, and attendance at the Mass.

We held an awards assembly on Friday, March 31 in our school gym. A list of awards will be on our News page. Congratulations to all the students who received a certificate for honor roll and principal’s list.

Please return your Tuition Assistance Forms to me by April 7. Thank you.

Prime-Time Reading Night was on March 30. A special thanks to Laurie Barrette, Michelle Brown, Kim Barrette, Ann Aulerich, Jim Weigel, and Diane Barrette for organizing the event for the students.

Our prayers and thoughts are with Eileen Eldridge’s mother who passed away on Friday, March 24. Her mass is at St. Patrick’s Cathedral next Tuesday, April 4.

Reminder: We will have a practice lockdown drill in April. Our last drill went really well. We are required to have three lockdown drills per year.

Please notify the main office with any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Linda Joyal

Principal
