Part of our mission at St. James R-1 School District is empowering students through caring relationships. Today, high school students showed our littlest Tigers what that means. St. James High School Senior Beta Club visited our Tiger Cubs classrooms to help each student write a letter to Santa and create a holiday craft. Student-to-student outreach is impactful to all involved and we're proud to see our students living the Tiger Way! #caringrelationships #stjschools #tigerpride

Our Tiger Trot student winners were treated to a pizza lunch with Mr. Webster and Dr. Williams yesterday! Before the Tiger Trot this year, students learned they had the chance to win a lunch with Superintendent Webster if they had the fastest time in their building. In addition, the top-five winners in each building, as well as staff and community members, will have their name on our Tiger Trot Top-Five Board for the next year. Congratulations and thank you for your participation! And thank you to Sonic Drive-In for providing swag bags to our student winners! #tigertrot #stjschools #tigerpride

Mrs. Hodge’s digital art students have spent the last two months creating their own digital picture books! Armed with an idea and an iPad, they got to work studying popular children’s picture books presented by Mrs. Harlan, the high school librarian. The books chosen were Caldecott Award winners which celebrate the artists of the most distinguished American picture books for children. Mrs. Harlan read the students a picture book without showing them the pictures. They had to choose a scene from the book to illustrate based on how they interpreted the text. Later, Mrs. Harlan read the book again and shared the illustrations. It showed how our personal interpretation can be very different from an author/illustrator’s meaning. Students learned how pictures tell the story just as much, if not more, than the words. After a crash course in picture book structure and industry standards, students began writing the text. Once their stories were finished, a guest speaker, Illustrator Katie Wools, shared industry tips and tricks as well as her own process for illustrating picture books. The last couple of weeks, students have been creating the illustrations for their final project: a complete, digital picture book. Interested students will have the opportunity for potential electronic publication. #learninghighlight #academicexcellence #stjschools #tigerpride

Learning Highlight! Students from John F. Hodge High School visited Lucy Wortham James Elementary this week. Señora Briggeman’s Spanish I classes have been learning about likes/dislikes and how to combine them with verbs to make sentences. They created a digital storybook detailing their preferences and presented them to multiple grades at the elementary. The younger students were able to practice their Spanish as they interacted with the high schoolers. Mr. Webster and Dr. Williams stopped by to listen to the Spanish Storybooks too! #academicexcellence #caringrelationships #stjschools #tigerpride

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
