Mission Monday Highlight! The St. James Caring Center received a grant in the amount of $5,000 from Phelps County Child Advocacy Network specifically for the St. James Schools Backpack Program. With the funds, bags of school supplies were purchased so students can begin the semester with necessities. Additionally, fifty kid-friendly backpacks were donated to the school. Each month the Caring Center will purchase and deliver a select inventory of food/personal hygiene items until the funds are expended. After purchasing backpacks and school supplies, the Caring Center estimates there will be $400 a month allocated for food and other supplies. Equally important is their effort to purchase locally as our in-town businesses support the Caring Center’s benevolent efforts. Director Nancy Montgomery states, “Working collaboratively with St. James Schools makes our hearts overflow with joy, knowing we make a difference in the lives of children.” #communitypartnerships #stjschools #tigerpride

Tiger Training is off to a roaring start! Students enrolled in Critical Thinking were given a series of idea cards and an endless supply of Legos to construct their own designs. Through this opportunity, students will develop skills within music, athletics, and critical thinking that will prepare them for future programs in middle school and high school. #tigertraining #stjschools #academicexcellence

First Grade: Meet the Teachers! This evening families used their detective skills to navigate the halls of first grade for a Title 1 Parent Night.

Learning Highlight! Last week, Mrs. Waldmann's 8th grade Communication Arts classes completed her Every Book is a Gift Project: "Students were given the gift of book and snack. Their task was to analyze the text, plan and deliver an appropriate presentation for the purpose of sharing what 'gift' that particular book had to offer the reader, and then share that with their peers. They did a fantastic job throughout the entire project collaborating with one another. " #academicexcellence #stjschools #tigerpride

Mission Monday Highlight! Mrs. Watson's middle school class did a team building activity where they "worked" on a Henry Ford assembly line. Students had to make the most “Tiger Trinkets” in five minutes. They learned to work as a team and reflect and improve that ability during this activity. #academicexcellence #stjschools #missionmonday

Miss Wisdom’s 5th grade home room class accepted our challenge! At the beginning of the school year, Superintendent Webster challenged our District to strive for a complaint-free life and seek the positive every day. We gifted hundreds of bracelets to students and staff members, so they can remember our challenge and be positive at school and at home. #everydayisagreatday #tigerpride #stjschools

Future Farmers of America (FFA) held their first event of the school year last week. Emily Douglas, a junior at John F. Hodge, was given the opportunity to provide media content to the District as part of her Supervised Agriculture Experience (SAE). She has been a member of FFA since her freshman year. “The watermelon crawl is an event to help new members and their families learn more about FFA. We started off the crawl with a catered meal by Arnold‘s Grill and Smoke and then afterwards, members went outside for a series of games in their H.E.R.D.S. groups, which is a participation encouragement program that they started this year. It just gets the kids more involved. While all that was happening, the parents stayed in the shop and played a trivia game about FFA history. My first SAE is helping my parents work on our farm. We have a beef Angus cattle farm in which we have twenty-two cows. Four are mine and their names are Bella, Midnight, Maybelline, and Chocolate Ice. I feed the cows four buckets of feed every other night. My second SAE project is taking pictures and submitting them to photo contests and I also take photos everywhere I can to help out or purely for my enjoyment.” #academicexcellence #stjschools #ffa

The 2022-2023 school year has begun and fall sports are officially underway. Crowds can be large at many games, so we want to review expected student behavior during sporting events. The safety of our students and event patrons is important, so please read over the following expectations at school functions. Elementary-aged children must sit with their parents or guardians during all games (football, volleyball, basketball, etc). High school and middle school students must sit with a parent or guardian unless they are seated in areas designated for students in the bleachers. All children are expected to sit and watch the game and should not be running around, playing behind the bleachers, under the bleachers, on the football practice field, on the track, rolling down hills, etc. The wooded areas and grass areas at the stadium are not to be used or played on during a school event. In addition, kicking or throwing balls, bottles, seat cushions, etc., inside or around the stadium or gymnasium is prohibited. No footballs, soccer balls, frisbees, or any other ball, large toy, or play item should be brought inside the stadium or gymnasium. These expectations will apply at away competitions as well. If we all work together, the games will be enjoyable, memorable, and safe events for everyone. We appreciate your support and hope to see you at the games cheering for the Tigers and Lady Tigers.
