Mission Makers: St. James Girls Volleyball Serves Compassion Through Paint It Pink Night! Paint It Pink Night is more than just a sporting event; it's a powerful expression of our school district's mission. Our dedication to empowering our students through caring relationships, academic excellence, and community partnerships shines through in this annual tradition. This year, our student-athletes, coaches, and community members came together to raise over $1600 for those bravely battling breast cancer within our school and town. At St. James R-1 School District, we don't just educate; we nurture compassionate citizens who understand the value of community. #MissionMakers #stjschools #tigerpride

Learning Highlight! Howdy, partners! This week, our first-grade buckaroos delved deep into the world of cowboys and cowgirls. They learned about qualities like kindness, courage, patience, and the ability to work together. In an action-packed day of fun, they kicked things off with stick horse races, demonstrating their sight word and math skills while blazing the trail. And then our little cowhands had the privilege of meeting two special guests: Cowgirl Hunter and Cowgirl Gray, who shared a thrilling tale with them. Students were able to meet Scottish Highland Cattle! These furry friends belong to none other than our very own first-grade teacher, Mrs. Duclos. Hats off to First Grade for a successful day on the trail! #academicexcellence #stjschools #tigerpride

Tiger Highlight: Celebrating Lucy Wortham James Elementary's Students of the Month! LWJE is launching an inspiring initiative where they celebrate important values and character traits! For September, their chosen word was EMPATHY. Throughout the month, students across all grade levels will participate in engaging classroom challenges that encourage them to embody the “Word of the Month” in their daily lives. Whether it's lending a helping hand, showing kindness, or simply listening with an open heart, we are nurturing these essential skills. At the end of the month, each classroom teacher will select a student who has truly embraced the spirit of the word. These students will be recognized as our "Students of the Month!” 👏 Let's give a big round of applause to our LWJE Students of the Month for September! 👏

Learning Highlight: One Green Apple, Many Sweet Lessons! Mrs. Wainwright’s second-grade class had a special visitor last week! Her mother dropped by to teach the kids to whip up some delicious homemade applesauce. The students got hands-on and helped with peeling and grinding apples and also learned about emotions through the focus book of the week, "One Green Apple," by Eve Bunting. In the story, the main character felt isolated and different when she moved to a new country and couldn't speak the language. During a class trip to the apple orchard, her classmates selected red apples for cider, while she chose a single green apple. It was only after making new friends that she realized the extraordinary taste when the apples blended together. They realized the magic of diversity – just like in their applesauce! These moments remind us that the world is a better place because of its incredible differences. Let's celebrate diversity, one apple (and one student) at a time! #academicexcellence #stjschools #tigerpride

Learning Highlight: Igniting Curiosity! Health class students at St. James R-1 High School embarked on an engaging exploration of communicable diseases. After doing research, they transformed their findings into informative posters, which were displayed gallery-style throughout the hallway. What truly set this project apart was the students' inquisitiveness, as they posed two thoughtful questions about each poster, sparking continued research. This initiative shows our commitment to empowering students and nurturing their curiosity. #academicexcellence #stjschools #tigerpride
