Latest News

Entries for September 2016


Book Fair will be held in the school library.  Book Fair will be open to parents during fall conference time.  Students will visit the Book Fair with their homeroom or reading class during school.  


Students are off school today due to a teacher inservice.

Once a year the faculty members vote on a Staff Member of the Year for St. James School.  While this decision is always a tough one, each year one of the many stellar staff members at our school is recognized for her hard work, spirit, and dedication to the students of St. James.  This year, our school is proud to announce that first grade teacher, Mrs. Renee Barnett, has been selected for this honor.

To be eligible, a staff member must have worked at St. James School during the previous school year.  Besides this, the staff member should represent the values of the Catholic faith and St. James School.  This staff member should be held in high regard by peers, students, and parents and be an integral part of the St. James community. 

Mrs. Barnett is known for her positive attitude, quick smile and laugh, and her energy.   She works hard on a daily basis to encourage and challenge her students.  Beyond her classroom, she helps mentor new teachers, serves as a team leader, and is a member of the school’s Leadership Team.  Now in her 13th year of teaching, we are proud that she has spent ten of those years at St. James. 

Renee has been married to Scott for nearly 24 years and is the proud mother of Dylan and Camryn.  Both of her children are graduates of St. James School. 

Mrs. Barnett was surprised with this recognition at the end of an all school mass on Wednesday, September 7, 2016.  After receiving the award she thanked her colleagues and students and said, “I am blessed to work with such wonderful people and in a place that is committed to students and their learning.  This means so much coming from the people that I think so highly of!”
