Information for New Families

Welcome and congratulations on your acceptance to St. James Lutheran School! We are excited for you to enjoy all the benefits our community has to offer.  On this page please find information that will be helpful as your child begins at St. James.

New Family Welcome Event

New families are invited to join us for food and beverages while getting to know teachers and others in the community every year before the first day of school. This is a family event – children are welcome and encouraged to attend! 


Home Visits

If you have a student in our Early Childhood Program, your child’s teacher will contact you in August to schedule a home visit. This 15-20 minute visit is a great opportunity for you and your child to get to know the teacher.

School Supply Drop-Off

Students in grades K-8 are invited to meet their teacher and drop-off school supplies before the first day of school.  All students will receive a supply list in the spring to get ready for the fall start of school.

Have questions or want to learn more about St. James?

We look forward to meeting you and showing you all that St. James has to offer your family.

Funding a quality education requires more than just tuition; it requires the support and generosity of the whole community.
