We’re excited to again participate in Joy of Giving Day on April 26! Joy of Giving is a 24-hour period of giving to benefit schools, parishes, ministries, and organizations of the Archdiocese of Omaha.
Your generous support of St. James/Seton Catholic School has a direct and positive impact on our staff and students. Your gift will help us raise funds toreplace classroom carpet, restroom sinks, and order instructional reading workbooks.
To donate, visit our giving website. You are also welcome to submit a donation via Venmo – @SJS-Donations. Please identify on Venmo what the donation is for (for example: Joy of Giving). If you prefer to give in the form of cash/check, please forward the donation to the school office (ATTN: Tiffany Howard).
You can wait to join in the fun on the 26th or you can also make a gift in advance! Thanks for sharing this opportunity to support the school with family and friends. You can even make a donation in memory of a loved one.
Please consider joining in our efforts to make this a fantastic day of Catholic giving in our community!

Volleyball Registration is now open to all 2023-2024, 4th-8th grade girls. Registration closes May 1. Tryouts will be scheduled based on need only. Your grade only requires tryouts if there is enough interest to make 2 teams for your grade. Tryouts will take place before the end of the year. New uniforms are being purchased this year. The size uniform you order at registration will be the size your daughter has for her season. We will not have any to trade. We will have a uniform try on event after school before May 1. Please watch VB and the parents FB page for information on when that is. If you are concerned about the size please wait to register until after the try on event.
