Dear Parents and Guardians,

Children are successful at school for many reasons – one of the biggest is the relationship and communication between the family and the school. We are a small school community with many events happening every day. Being a small community helps us stay connected, and there are multiple ways to do so: by phone, by mail, and in person. A simple way to stay up to date is to visit our website.

If you have not already done so, please check our website at least once a week–from home, work, the library, or your phone.

The following can always be found here:

View your child’s grades

Websites for educational fun

So please…visit this site often. Please email me (dmcdonough@stjamesphila.org) whenever you have a question or concern. I promise to return your email promptly–within 24 hours when school is in session. If you have any ideas that you think we should consider, don’t hesitate to let us know. Family partners are essential to the success of your child and our school.

God Bless,

Mr. David McDonough
Assistant Head of School
