That time is almost here, graduation is around the corner. It will be this Tuesday, June 2nd @ 10:00 AM. I want to sincerely thank you for sharing your senior with me over the past four years. Honestly, it has been a sincere honor to have been their principal. They are so special to me and I owe them so much. What an awesome class they are the potential that this class has is off the chain. Just to remind you of a few details for graduation. Gates open at 8:30 AM on to the campus, know your parking lot A, B or C, bring your two guests with you when you. The stadium gates to the football field will open at 9:15 AM. Seniors and guest please walk into the stadium together. Seniors know your seat when you enter the stadium. Parents, please fill the bleacher seats from top to bottom or on a seat on the track. Please review the information that was in your Senior envelope and hopefully you were able to review the video explaining all the details. 

Parents and guests this is huge, and I am just asking a special favor, we have worked extremely hard to pull this graduation off. We have a rich tradition at St. James High school for a very dignified and classy graduation for all to be proud of especially our seniors. We're asking that you do not clap or yell or make any noise during the presentation of the diplomas. Please wait until the very last name is called so that we can recognize them as the class of 2020, they deserve that, not as individuals. So again please do us a big favor and restrain from hollering or yelling until we get through with the diplomas it will make a great day for everyone. Let's all enjoy this special day, again if you have any questions please let us know. See you Tuesday Morning.

Guidance Department Updates

The SJHS Guidance department is available through email if you or your child needs anything during this time. We are going to have a weekly schedule that you can expect to receive information from us. We will share the following each week on Facebook, Twitter, and through our Google Classroom.

We will also be doing weekly check ins with our students using a Google form that will be sent to student email accounts. It is important that we keep communication open during this time so please reach out to us if there is anything that we can do to support you and your child. Also encourage them to check their student emails daily.

Also a reminder that guidance does their "Coffee with Counselors" every Wednesday @ 9:30am. Many parents are participating and getting questions answered. It is nice to hear from everyone.  ____________________________________________________________________
