    Message From The Nurse
    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    As the end of the school year approaches, I would like to remind you to pick up your child’s medication from school. Policy regulations require the disposal of ALL medications, prescription and non-prescription, which are not picked up. (This includes emergency medications such as Inhalers and EpiPens). The school cannot store any medication over the summer.

    Please pick up medications by 12:00pm on Wednesday, June 5th, or the medication(s) will be destroyed.

    Please remember a parent or guardian must pick up the medication by the date indicated above. We cannot send medication home with students. Please come to the front office to pick up your child’s medication. If you need to make special arrangements, please call me. If your child’s medication is not picked up, it will be destroyed.

    Thank you for allowing me to help with meeting your child’s health care needs at school. Have a happy and healthy summer!

    PDL Collection
    As we approach the last few days of school for both Seniors and underclassmen, we would like to kindly remind you of the importance of turning in your PDL after your last test or assignment requiring PDL usage. 

    Due to many students possessing more than one PDL, it's imperative that you begin preparing your search for all PDLs along with their components prior to their last day of instruction. The technology department is now prepared to receive PDLs at this time. If a PDL is malfunctioning, damaged or missing parts, we would like to receive those PDLs ASAP, as we desire to get those processed first.

    HCS is committed to providing our students and staff members with a safe and secure learning environment.

    Athletics Results
    Track Results From State

    The Sharks traveled to Columbia for the 5A State Finals this past Friday night. The weather looked rough and we got poured on for about 30 minutes but that little bit of rain didn’t stop the Sharks from competing at the highest level. 

    Joshua Sterling
    became a back-to-back State Champion as he won the discus with a new PR of 178’2.25”. This throw places Joshua as the #1 high school discus thrower in the state among all classifications. Sterling dominated the field Friday, winning by almost 13 feet.

    Freshman Kaylee Kearney jumped near her PR in her first 3 jumps and thought her season had ended but got the call back to the finals and jumped a 9.5 inch PR and wound up getting 4th place overall with a jump of 17’9.5”.

    The team of Ashton Williams-Robey, Logan Martinez, Morgyn Clark, and Tyler Pritchett qualified for the State Finals in 2 events the 4x800 and the 4x400. Even after winning the Lower State title in the 4x800 the Sharks elected not to run it in the finals and focus on the 4x400 knowing this was their best chance to get on the podium. The Sharks were in heat one of two which is considered the slower of the two heats, so they knew they were going to have to fly. With all 4 members fresh the Sharks did just that and ran a 4.5 second PR breaking the school record and finishing 6th place overall in a time of 3:22.08.

    Connor Schwalm finished 5th place in the State last season and among tough competition, heavy rain and a flooded shot put ring Connor made his way back onto the podium once again. Connor finished in 8th place with a throw of 49’1” just 3 inches off his PR.

    Oscar Hynes got into the State Finals for the first time in his high school career and had a very productive week leading up to the finals. Oscar put in countless hours practicing his form in the pole vault and on late Friday night it all paid off. Oscar cleared a new PR of 12’6” and finished in 8th place overall.

    Tyriq Gause got into the State meet in two events, the Long and the Triple Jump. Tyriq finished out his high school career in 12th place in the Triple Jump and 15th in the Long Jump. Tyriq will continue his track career next season at Coker College.

    Morgyn Clark is a 2 time State Qualifier in the high jump and this season cleared 6’.75” in the Finals and finished in 9th place just one place away from making the podium. Morgyn will continue his track career at Wabash College next season.

    Lillian White qualified for the State Finals for the first time and competed in the Pole Vault. Lillian cleared 9’.25” which was good enough for 13th place overall. Lillian has one more year and hope to improve on this finish next season.

    Summer Activities / Camps

    St. James High School FCCLA is hosting our first Kids Sewing Camp this summer! This camp is perfect for kids ages 7-12 to learn the basics of hand and machine sewing taught by St. James High's fashion teacher and students. Campers will be paired with high school fashion students to make a variety of projects including pajama shorts, scrunchies, tote bags, and more. Parents can sign their children up for Full Day or Half Day options. Camp will begin each day at the front lobby of the high school and campers will spend the day in the Fashion Lab. Half-day campers will depart at 12pm. Full Day campers will bring their own lunch for a picnic each day.

    FCCLA stands for the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America. FCCLA is a national student-led organization that focuses on the family. Members develop skills for life through Family & Consumer Sciences Education. St. James High School FCCLA is an active chapter that is state and nationally recognized. Each year, our chapter sends students to the National Leadership Conference to compete in a variety of events including Fashion Design, Fashion Construction, Sustainability Challenge, Teach or Train, Career Investigation, Food Innovations, Sports Nutrition and more. All profits from Kids Sewing Camps will benefit the FCCLA members to help offset the expenses of traveling to state and national conferences and events.
