Please join us for the Saint James Parish Festival.  The festival will be held on July 27-29.  The Saint James School teachers and staff will be stationed at the Chuck-A-Luck booth.  Be sure to stop by and say hi to some of your teachers and to play a few games.  We hope to see you there!
The College of Wooster in Wooster, Ohio, was the site of the 28th Annual Power of the Pen State Competition for Young Writers. The event was held on May 25, 2012.

This tournament is the culmination of twenty-eight District and twelve Regional competitions held throughout the State of Ohio. Approximately 700 writers from 276 schools in Ohio participated in the all-day writing tournament.

Students from grades seven and eight competed in four 35-minute writing rounds and a “Power Round”, vying for trophies, certificates, savings bonds, cash prizes, and college scholarships valued at more than $100,000 for demonstrating excellence in writing. All writing is in response to prompts not known in advance.

Representing Saint James School at the State Tournament were Patrick Raneses and Hannah Smith who successfully competed at District and Regional tournaments to qualify for the State Tournament.

Patrick Raneses placed an amazing 11th in the eighth grade level.

The Power of the Pen Tournaments and the Ohio Interscholastic Writing League, which honor excellence in creative writing, are ideas originated and developed by Lorraine Merrill of Richfield, Ohio, who now administers the statewide program. Power of the Pen works with 500 middle schools throughout Ohio, and generates 25,000 pieces of writing annually.
