Welcome to the Saint James PTA
On behalf of the entire Parent Teacher Association Executive Board, welcome!
PTA Mission: The PTA at Saint James Elementary School fosters a cooperative relationship between the parents, faculty and staff of Saint James Elementary School for the enrichment of our children’s educational experience. Through volunteer efforts, fundraising endeavors and event planning, the PTA supports the educational, spiritual, physical and financial development of the Saint James Elementary School community.
What our funds raise: PTA funds are an essential part of the Saint James Elementary School budget. For example, PTA funds help support new curriculum material, technology, facility upgrades, school supplies, the school nurse and social worker, among others. We also support events such as Red Ribbon Week, New Family Social, Caresteps, and Catholic Schools Week.
Volunteers: Volunteers are essential to running all aspects of PTA activities. Our programs can only be successful with your help and support. Please reach out to any PTA member for volunteer opportunities.
