St. James staff staged a parade to celebrate graduates at their homes.
Staff Parade Celebrates Our Class of 2020
It has been an unusual year, to say the least! We applaud the perseverance of every student in the Class of 2020. They finished their final year at St. James School by working hard to attend classes online and complete their assignments despite extraordinarily difficult circumstances.

We look forward to hosting an in-person 8th grade graduation when it is safe to do so. But we couldn't let their originally scheduled graduation day go by without congratulating them. On June 12, our staff came together for a jubilant, socially distanced, celebration parade – surprising graduates at their homes to share good wishes and treats.
