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 St. James Families,

Spring will come. I promise. Until then we will muddle through the storms, and the snow removal, and the subsequent melting and mud. We will ride through the cabin fever, and the icy conditions, and the sub-zero wind-chills. And we will do it together.

The key to it all is reaching out to help each other. I’d like to take a moment and thank those of you who have come forward with help in these unusual (for Connecticut) winter circumstances. You have come with your snow blowers and your shovels, and we are very appreciative!

I would like to offer a particular thank you to Mr. Erwin Sanchez. He has re-plowed the playground to facilitate dismissal and salted the area to give cars and duty personnel alike, better traction.

Thank you’s also need to go out to Rene Barbeau and Steve Williams for their help with the walkways when our equipment was simply no longer up to the task.

I would also like to thank my staff for all the time they are spending on inside recess duty and then going on to teach math to children who have not been out of doors for weeks. Though, like Job in the scripture above, we cannot argue with what God is throwing at us, we can all choose to handle things with patience, good humor, and grace. I thank you all for doing so.

Peace and warmth,

Monique Almquist

Monique Almquist
Principal
