We are doing a good job keeping the number of kids quarantining relatively low and consistent. Thank you for your help. Experts do worry about the potential for spread through Super Bowl parties. So if you’re planning an event like that masking and social distancing is indeed encouraged.  Here is some of the latest info from the CDC- www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/prevention.html


Yard Signs are still available.  Do you have a high traffic area that can help us promote our school?  Let the office know if you would like to display an SJS Now Enrolling yard sign.

Thank you to those of you who purchased Spring Fling takeout BBQ meals to
support Saint James / Seton Athletics.
For those of you who did, please note the following:

Meal Pick Up Info

You may pick up your meals from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. this Saturday, February 6, from the St. James Parish Center. Please enter the parish center through the courtyard doors, rather than using the main church doors.

Super Bowl Squares

We will be running the annual Super Bowl Squares board during pick up – a Spring Fling fan-favorite! Each square costs $10 and gives you a chance to win $100 at the end of each of the first three quarters, and $250 at the end of the game. Please bring cash or a check if you would like to purchase a square.  As always, 100% of the proceeds benefit the Saint James / Seton Athletic Association.

Once again, THANK YOU so much for your support of Saint James / Seton Athletics.
