Greetings St. James-Santee family! I am excited to be a part of this wonderful school community where literacy will continue to be our top priority, and I will work to continue the strong academic traditions that have been in place at our school. Our goal is for every student who walks through our doors to get the best education possible. We are continuously looking for better ways to build on our already strong partnerships with parents and community stakeholders. These partnerships between SJSE and our school community will be the recipe for great academic success for our students.
