On Wednesday afternoon, we gathered to celebrate the end of the school year with a Moving Up Day ceremony. This is a beautiful service where we recognize that our 8th Grade students are moving on to join SJA alumni and our 4th – 7th Grade students are now moving up a grade. Also, each member of our Student Council transfers leadership to the newly elected officers. The purpose of Moving Up Day is not only to mark the end of the school year, but also to mark the beginning of the new journey each student will take through St. James Academy and celebrate their future as they embark on a new chapter.
Please enjoy the video of the sermon by Father Victor Hailey.
