• Welcome to another exciting school year!  I am honored to begin my forth year as principal of St. James Elementary School where students and staff are valued, supported, and encouraged to do their personal best.  We are an award-winning school that is committed to supporting the whole child through high expectations for all students, engaging learning opportunities, inclusion of technology/digital content, research-based instructional strategies, meaningful community service projects, clubs/nationally-affiliated organizations, and so much more.  


    St. James Elementary is  fortunate to be a part of a community where we have long-lasting, positive relationships with parents, local business partners, faith-based organizations, volunteers, and neighbors.  I am looking forward to another great year of learning and growing.  Our theme this year is “Mindset is Everything".  On our journey to excellence, we have experienced much success over the past years.  With the continued support of our entire school community, we are committed to moving forward on this trajectory.   Thank you for Supporting the Journey to Excellence and making SJE a wonderful school community!
