++ This event is a unique way to raise funds for the school while promoting academic excellence.
++ Monies raised will go to the general fund to help support activities and programs which benefit our students. (We have raised up to $10,000 for the school in past years!)
++ Students will be given challenging, grade appropriate words that are a part of their curriculum and will be included as a part of their grade.
++ FAMILY and FRIENDS can sponsor our students by pledging funds for each word spelled correctly, OR by simply making a flat donation in support of a student's participation.
++ As an extra challenge, each student can set a goal and ask for a double-pledge if that goal is met.
++ Pledge sheets are due back to school TEST DAY on Wednesday January 25th and tests will be scored and returned for pledge collection by January 27th.
++ All pledge monies are due by February 10th.
The Catholic Faith Community of St. James Academy weaves Christ's
message into the fabric of each school day so that the whole child can
develop in body, mind and spirit. Working within an educational program
that integrates spiritual, moral, academic, social, cultural and
physical precepts, the faculty and staff assist parents in the education
of each child.
We believe... In modeling Christ's
teaching, we strive to prepare children to live in the world as
responsible citizens and as faithful stewards of creation in an ever
changing environment. We provide a student-centered, Catholic-based
curriculum which values cultural and intellectual diversity in our
commitment to excellence.
We encourage... St. James is a fully
accredited, Catholic elementary school (K-8) that has been serving the
San Diego North County Coastal community since 1952. St James employs
fully credentialed teachers -- 8 with masters degrees. The Academy is
part of the vibrant St. James Catholic Community. Faculty and
administration are diligent in their commitment to ongoing academic
improvement and take great pride in providing a warm, personal, yet
challenging, educational environment for the Academy's student.
We care... The St. James faculty is united
in faith values and dedicated to the principles of Catholic education.
This includes instruction in the basic tenets of the Catholic faith in
addition to teaching respect for all individuals and encouraging
compassion and social responsibility. All faculty members are committed
to their own growth as teaching professionals. They work closely with
parents to provide the best possible education for the students.
