All students, faculty, and staff are invited to bring their school bags to the altar for a special blessing as we start a brand-new school year. Throwing it back to St. James Episcopal Day School in the 60's! Here is Mrs. Williams' third grade class, 1965-66. #TBT Happy 4th of July from all of us at St. James! We hope you have a fun day filled with family, friends, and fireworks. God Bless the USA! ❤️🇺🇸💙 Give the gift of only $70 to the St. James Annual Fund, and you'll be providing an extra security lock for a classroom door with high performance entry door defense!

This lock is easy to use but can withstand a tremendous force of 2,000 pounds! #WeAreStJames #AnnualFund The drive-in movie night at St. James was a great time! Thanks to the Children’s Council for organizing such a fun event. #Repost @stjamesbr ・・・
