Pickup Reminder ~  For the safety of your students, when picking up on Tomahawk Blvd be sure you are parked at curb before your student gets into your car.  For safety’s sake we don’t want students running into the street to be picked up.

Spring Fling Update ~ COVID-19 has cancelled the in-person portion of Spring Fling, the Athletic Association’s Annual fundraiser. But thanks to the generosity of SJS alumni Mark and Steve Schumacher, whose families own and operate Dave’s Auto Body Co., we will have takeout dinners available.


For $15, you will get approximately 1 pound of barbeque (slow-roasted and smoked pulled pork, 1 or 2 smoked chicken thighs (depending upon size), and smoked sausage), a scoop of tortellini and baked beans. The first 100 meals picked up also will include a corn bread muffin. No substitutions may be made.


A limited number of meals are available, so order yours now (must be paid for at the time you order). And remember, leftover BBQ make a great meal for watching the Super Bowl the next day.

For more information or to order, please visit  http://www.sjsathletics.com/2021/01/19/spring-fling-2021/

Meals will be available for pickup from the Saint James Parish Center from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 6. Please enter the parish center through the doors in the courtyard.
