Martin Luther King Jr. Day

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'" - Martin Luther King, Jr.

 The mission here at St. James R-1 School District has three pillars: caring relationships, academic excellence, and community partnerships. We want to highlight the recent work of our Junior Beta Club at St. James Middle School because they not only exemplify our District mission, but also the teachings of Dr. King. He encouraged and empowered Americans to participate in community service, working together to create positive change in our own communities. 

 The Middle School Junior Beta Club held a Walk-a-Thon fundraiser and raised $1,750 to donate to St. Jude Children's Hospital. Through service learning opportunities, we empower our students to positively contribute to the community and world.
