School Recognized by Channel 3
St. James School Composting Program Receives Recognition
This year, SJS students have initiated a composting program to eliminate waste from the school lunch program. The Science Classes have recently made and filled raised beds with our compost and are working to integrate this composting into experimenting and working to use that compost to efficiently grow food and engage in small-scale farming for our school.
Because of the efforts of Ms. Fahey, the Junior High Science teacher, and our students, St. James School was recently recognized by Channel 3. Channel 3 donated a tree that has been planted in the playground for the Early Care students behind the rectory at St. James.
We have also recently made and filled raised beds with our compost.

We want to invite everyone in our parish ages 18-35 to join us each week to build community, dive into our faith, and commit ourselves to service.
We meet almost every Thursday at 7 pm, usually in the basement at St. James, and usually with some sort of snack. There’s no obligation to attend each week, but we would love to see you there!
