St. James Episcopal Day School


Parents Guild

Parent’s Guild

  • The school family is drawn together through the Parents Guild with active room parents, grade representatives, and leadership ready to welcome every family. Every parent with a child enrolled at St. James is automatically member of the Parents Guild.
  • The Guild provides an organized method of communication between the school and parents, and offers a means for parents to become involved in school activities.
  • Parents may also serve on the School Board, on the Board and Executive Committee of the Parents Guild, as Room Mothers and Fathers, Grade Representatives, as volunteers in the library, in fundraising activities, and more.
  • To get involved, please contact your Grade Representative to discuss opportunities that fit your talents and your schedule.
