Dear SJES Families:
What a wonderful year we are having at St. James! Thank you for all that you do for our school.
As we enter the season of giving, and prepare for a Black Friday spree, I hope this letter serves as a reminder for all of the amazing things our teachers and staff do at St. James. It is a tradition at St. James for the PTO to collect money for a Christmas Purse that benefits our faculty and staff. While Christmas and holiday presents for our faculty and staff are wonderful and appreciated, it can mean a lot of extra things added to your “to do” list this holiday season.
If you would like an alternative to adding more to your gift list for the holidays, please consider giving to the St. James PTO Christmas Purse. The money collected will be distributed evenly among all of the faculty and staff and will include a card recognizing the families who donated.
We will start collecting gifts to the Christmas Purse from Thursday, Nov. 17 through Monday, Dec. 12, and the gifts will be distributed to our teachers and staff at their holiday party.
It is truly a special way for St. James parents to show their appreciation and share holiday spirit with our faculty and staff. Please join us by donating to the Christmas Purse.
Ginger and Clayton Greenberg
