Parent Association

Strong parent participation is an important part of what makes St. James’ extraordinary. Our parent body regularly comes together with faculty, staff and students to enhance the school community through enriching activities.

The St. James’ Parent Association helps coordinate parent involvement at school. Parent Association supports the mission of the school through volunteer opportunities. 

There are opportunities to volunteer that fit every schedule. The following activities happen thanks to parent volunteers and the collection of Parent Association dues (everyone is welcome to participate, and items marked with * focus on K-6):

  • African-American Heritage Month

  • Art Committee*

  • Community Gathering Snacks*

  • Dads’ Night Out

  • Faculty Appreciation Meals*

  • Family Pancake Breakfast

  • Family Weekend Camping Trip*

  • Gardening Committee

  • Grandparents and Special Friends Day

  • Hispanic Heritage Month

  • Healthy Hot Lunch*

  • The Herald Magazine

  • In-N-Out Burger Lunch

  • Larchmont Fair Bake Sale

  • Library and Media Center Committee*

  • Lost and Found*

  • Lunar New Year

  • Mitzvah Committee

  • Moms’ Night Out

  • Photography Committee

  • The Shop@SJS

  • St. James’ Cares

  • STEAM Fair*

  • Used Uniform Closet*

  • Year End and Holiday Staff Collection Drive*

 

Your family’s dues of $80 will allow us to carry out the above activities this school year. Surplus funds earned from events are donated back to the school. For example, last year the Parent Association gifted $10,000 to the Believe Campaign for campus renovation, as well as a new water fountain to the Preschool. We also give funds to the annual Spring Event, and to each classroom teacher as a “Wish List”.

 

If you have already paid your $80 Parent Association dues, thank you! If you haven’t, please pay now.

To volunteer, ask questions or offer ideas, please contact the Parent Association at parentassociation@sjsla.org.

Here’s to another great year!
