Parent Association

Dear Fellow St. James’ Parents:

Strong parent participation is an important part of what makes St. James’ extraordinary. Our parent body comes together with faculty, staff and students to enhance the educational experience, creating enriching opportunities within and outside the school, providing a strong sense of community and helping make the school year fun and productive for all.

The Parent Association is the main avenue to parent involvement at our school. Parent Association supports the community of the school through volunteer activities, fundraising events, enhancing friendships among parents and promoting the mission of the school.

There are volunteer opportunities to fit everyone’s schedule. Some activities are done in a day or a few hours, such as Family Pancake Breakfast or the Larchmont Fair, and others, such as the Husky Highlights Newsletter and Hot Lunch, provide involvement throughout the year.

Here are a few of the many activities that would not be possible – or would not be the same – without the generous support and leadership provided by the Parent Association:

  • African–American Heritage Month
  • Around-the-World Days
  • Community Gatherings
  • Family Pancake Breakfast
  • Dad’s Night Out
  • Faculty Appreciation
  • Family Weekend
  • Grandparents' & Special Friends' Day
  • Hispanic Heritage Month
  • Healthy Hot Lunch
  • In-N-Out Burger Lunches
  • Larchmont Fair
  • Mom’s Night Out
  • Organic & Aquaponics Gardens
  • Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Fair
  • Spring Event
  • Week of the Young Child

If you have questions, need additional information, or would like to volunteer, you can contact the Parent Association by email at parentassociation@sjsla.org.

Here’s to another great year!
