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 Parents,

On behalf of the faculty of St. James School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2016-2017 new school year. I hope that all of you had a wonderful and relaxing summer.

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you. My name is Mrs. Joyal, and I am excited to be your principal this year. It’s going to be a fabulous year! The year will be filled with excitement, fun, and academic learning. I am looking forward with great expectations to working with your child.

We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know that a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring the following expectations:

  • Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s academic learning experiences.
  • Completes all homework and project assignments given by the teachers.
  • Reads daily to develop a love for reading and improve literacy skills.
  • Models Christian behavior in prayer and by example.
  • Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her daily school life.
  • Supports our religious and educational goals for academic learning,
  • Maintains all financial obligations to St. James Parochial School.
  • Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject.
  • Assumes responsibility for maintaining our school uniform policy and procedures.
  • Treats teachers and staff with the utmost respect and courtesy.

If you have any questions about the school rules and expectations, please feel free to contact me or to discuss them with your child’s teacher. It is very important that you and your child are fully informed regarding standards related to appropriate behavior for a safe and productive learning environment. In addition, please review the Family Handbook for school information regarding policies and procedures.

The St. James Parochial School faculty and I feel privileged to be a part of this wonderful school family. We thank you for your support and look forward to working with you.

Sincerely,

Linda Joyal

Linda Joyal
Principal
