St. James Elementary School held its 11th annual “Nutcracker” performance in December. Performed by the first and second graders, under direction of Mrs. Braunreuther, the students showed off their weeks of hard work to friends and family during the dance performances.
Third grade students from St. James Elementary School learned all about their ancestry as well as the roots of the other students in their grade during Heritage Day on Nov. 22.
Beginning with a musical performance that featured samples from all around the world, the students showed off their language skills by performing tunes in other languages. They ended the musical portion of the day with “It’s A Small World” and “God Bless America,” dedicated to the veterans in the audience.
In the multipurpose room, students showed off their Heritage Day projects, featuring historical documents and information that traced back their lineage for centuries, in some cases. Students designed posters that also included a family crest. As part of the day’s event, the students went on a “scavenger hunt” around the room to find clues about different ancestry backgrounds. Back in the classrooms, the celebration continued as students and guests sampled different ethnic food prepared by each family.
First grade students at St. James Elementary School learned all about the meaning of Veterans Day, the branches of the military and how the military keeps them safe. The students watched a video and brainstormed nonfiction writing ideas about Veterans Day. They also wrote handmade cards to the local veterans, thanking them for their service. The cards were delivered prior to Veterans Day at the VFW Hall in St. James.
