St. James Episcopal Day School

Student Stories

Strader, 5th Grade

1. What do you love about St. James Episcopal Day School?

"I like the small size of St. James because the teachers can give me one on one help and everyone knows each other."

2. Describe one of your favorite teachers and tell why she is a favorite.

"Mrs. Saffell is one of my favorite teachers. She is really good at explaining new ideas and she also makes learning fun at the same time! Mrs. Saffell did a great job preparing me for 5th grade."  

3. In what ways have you grown in your faith as a result of your time here at St. James?

"My faith has grown at St. James through our outreach projects because I can practice my faith. It felt good to give my $10 Christmas gift to children in need instead of exchanging a present with a classmate." 

4. The St. James Day School tagline is “Excellence, Faith, Community.” How do you experience excellence at St. James?

"I experience excellence at St. James through my teachers, our 2 Blue Ribbons, and through our strong community." 

5. What would you tell another student, who goes to another school, to encourage them to consider St. James?

"You will get to know all of your teachers, classmates and feel like an important part of St James. Just like a high-end stereo speaker, St James might be small but it makes a great big noise!"
