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. 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.

Parents, please continue to read with your children every day, because it helps reinforce the things that they learn in school. At SJSE, we will continue to reinforce the expectations that are being taught at home as well. I am looking forward to a great school year at SJSE, and you can be assured that our goal is for every student that walks through our doors to get the best education possible. This will happen with dedicated staff members, involved parents, anda school community that believes that all students will be successful.

Please feel free to stop by to check out our wonderful school, or just to volunteer time on campus. If you have any questions, or even suggestions as to how we can better serve your child, please do not hesitate to call us at 723-0863.

Joe Sampson, III
