Parents, there are posters in the school office to help spread the word about SJS. Please consider taking one to hang at work or share with local businesses. If you'd like a poster, please let us know. Thanks for your support!
We are always accepting donations of 1 sided clean paper. If you know of a company updating letterhead or getting rid of clean 1 sided paper we would love to take it off their hands.

~HOPE Bring HOPE into your family’s finances! Remember that school families purchasing HOPE certificates can get tuition credits – 45% of the profits on the purchased gift cards/certificates go to the school family as credits, when the Sycamore number is provided. You can also have relatives or friends provide your number to get you more tuition credit. For St. James school families, the tuition credit is doubled through the St. James Angels of HOPE program. Some families receive hundreds of dollars. See the attached HOPE brochure http://www.sjsomaha.org/media/files/2018%20Hope%20Brochure3.pdf and visit the HOPE web site today: http://stjamescatholicchurch.org/hope/hope-home.
