Saying "YES" at St. James Elementary

May 17, 2024

Students at St. James Elementary who have served as positive role models for others were recognized today by YES MAN at the school’s YES assembly.

YES Man called up selected winners who received YES t-shirts and plenty of high fives!

Even Principal Javidi was a winner!

Throughout the school year at SJE, students are given the following questions:
Are you: Taking care of: Yourself? Taking care of: Each other? Taking care of: St. James?

Children who can honestly answer these questions positively serve as wonderful role models for others. The YES program has been at St. James for over 20 years.  The goal is to ensure all students have a safe and supportive environment and demonstrate skills and attributes to cope with life challenges and achieve personal well-being.
