The St. James Episcopal School mission is to develop each child to his or her fullest potential, spiritually, intellectually, and physically – that each child may grow in grace, enjoy freedom through knowledge, and lead a healthy, productive, and meaningful life.
St. James Episcopal School is a Pre-Primary through 8th grade school that has shaped leaders in Corpus Christi and the surrounding community since 1946. St. James provides that unique combination of academic excellence alongside spiritual formation and sound physical development. Through our exemplary programs, we are developing scholars into persons of high character and preparing them to be servant leaders in the local and global community. If you are visiting our website for the first time, Welcome! We encourage you to explore our website and get to know the St. James Family. We especially invite you for a tour of our campus, to see our classrooms and meet our teachers. To schedule a tour, simply call our office at 361-883-0835. We look forward to getting to know you and how we may serve your children.
WHY: Maintaining up-to-date technology seems to be an ongoing trek of its own! So raising money for technology to enhance our scholars’ education is the perfect opportunity for the scholars to practice philanthropy. We like to hold one fundraiser per year where our scholars are required to raise money for the school, because we think it is important to foster and nurture their service and leadership commitment and charitable attitude.
WHAT FOR: The money raised for TREK for TECH will be used to cover technology resources including:
– School-wide intercom system!
– Replacement Smart/Clever Touch Boards for several classrooms
– New Smart Boards, Computers, and Laptops for our new 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Grade classes
– Texas State Aquarium distance learning program
– STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Art, Math) curriculum
WHEN AND HOW: On Friday, September 27th at 8:30 a.m. the whole school will begin our TREK! The Primary School scholars will lead us around the inner campus block of South Carancahua and Upper Broadway (not crossing any streets), and they will finish at the Playground. The Lower and Middle School scholars will continue walking to the Bayfront! The Lower School scholars will walk to the Yacht Club and back (1 mile), and the Middle School scholars will walk to the People’s Street T-Head and back (1.5 miles). All parents are welcome to walk with us for a nominal $25 contribution – CLICK HERE to register to walk with us!.
Remember – every single donation is 100% tax deductible, and all donations due by 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25th.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR HEARTFELT SUPPORT!
