Learning Highlight! Mrs. Evers and Mrs. Y’s Tiger Cubs held their own election and learned about what it means to vote. Ballots were also sent home to parents to fill out as a surprise to the students. Learning activities that align with current events encourage curiosity, strengthen critical thinking skills, and help our students, regardless of age, understand real world applications. #academicexcellence #LWJE #stjschools #tigerpride

Today, we want to congratulate and celebrate two of our staff members on their recent achievements. Linda Webster, our Nutrition Director, was sworn in as the President of the Missouri School Nutrition Association (MSNA). She will serve as MSNA President over the next year in her new role and will be "committed to advancing the quality of school meal programs through education and advocacy." Stacy Blakley, a teacher at St. James Middle School, is now the President of Missouri State Teachers’ Association (MSTA). She was sworn in last Friday and will lead MSTA, which "serves more than 47,000 educators and is dedicated to educating the state’s children." The St. James R-1 School District is proud of their accomplishments and we’re honored to have them both represent our school district at the state level. #staffexcellence #stjschools #tigerpride

Learning Highlight! High school students in Mrs. Lorts' class experienced a taste of the real world with a recent activity: Fab Life - A Zero-Based Budget Project. They were tasked with creating a zero-based budget from a career and income assigned to them. Imagination transported the students to their upper twenties and they were given a specific life scenario they were to follow: married/single, kids/no kids, occupation, education completed, net and gross salaries, etc. During the activity, each student visited fourteen different expense stations and had the opportunity to earn supplemental income if needed. They could also play a game of chance and pull a special card which was either a positive or negative outcome to their budget. In the end, they learned the cost of real world expenses and how to develop a budget. #academicexcellence #stjschools #tigerpride

Mission Monday Highlight! Last week, our first grade students from Lucy Wortham James Elementary held a canned food drive for their service learning project. Non-perishable food items were donated from our Tiger families and by the end of the week, first grade had collected over 2,000 items which far surpassed their initial goal of 1,000. All of the items were donated to St. James Caring Center Thrift Store to be used for their Benevolent Services. At the end of the week, first grade gathered to load up the biggest single donation ever into The Caring Center’s truck. Students from the St. James High School Senior Beta Club volunteered their time to help our LWJE Tigers carry and load the items. Congratulations to first grade on their successful service learning project! #communitypartnerships #caringrelationships #stjschools #tigerpride

Learning Highlight! Mrs. Fels’ second grade class has been learning about the plant life cycle and what they need to grow and thrive. The students had a special guest last week who helped them revive the flower bed behind Lucy Wortham James Elementary. Mrs. Sue Spehle-Heiberg, a former St. James educator, taught the students how and when to plant tulip bulbs and read them a story. This experience was full-circle for Mrs. Fels who built and planted the flower garden in 2002 when she was a third grader in Mrs. Spehle-Heiberg’s class. When asked about the activity with her students, Mrs. Fels said, “Mrs. Spehle-Heiberg inspired me to become a teacher and it was so special to have her share her love of learning with my class.” Our District empowers our students through caring relationships so seeing a real example of how impactful student-teacher relationships can be reaffirms our mission. #caringrelationships #academicexcellence #stjschools #tigerpride

Lifelong Learning Highlight! A group of educators from across our district participated in an Instructional Leadership Workshop facilitated by David Holden, CEO of American Alliance of Innovative Systems (AAIS). During the workdays, our educators developed a vision of instruction, performed classroom walkthroughs, and then identified strategies to make our newly developed vision a reality. The St. James R-1 School District values lifelong learning and we support our teachers as they continue on their education journey. #lifelonglearning #teachertuesday #stjschools #tigerpride

Mission Monday Highlight! With the holidays rapidly approaching, the District will be involved in many outreach projects to give back to our community. Last month, we had a group of middle school students organize a food drive as well as volunteering during Commodity Day. Each month various high school students also volunteer their time and distribute food for The Caring Center. This week our first grade students' service learning project is in full swing. They are holding a canned food drive with all items being donated to the St. James Caring Center in time for holiday food distributions. The students hope to collect 1,000 cans. If you would like to donate, please contact the elementary building! With the combined effort of our educators and community organizations, our students are learning the value of civic participation. #communitypartnerships #strongschoolsstrongcommunity #stjschools #tigerpride
