MCMINNVILLE —St. James Parish will celebrate the graduation of their students at 1:30 p.m., Friday, June 14, during the school Mass, followed by a reception. Graduates will be honored with a party and dinner afterwards. As is tradition, the song “Pass it On” will be sung at the Mass. This song asks the fourth-graders to pass on the "love of God" after the fifth graders are gone.
During the year, the students have worked with several dedicated educators. Teacher Kristen Tollefson gave birth to a baby girl in January, Madison Marie. The fifth graders have had Lindsay Johnson as substitute for the remainder of the school year. Johnson graduated from St. James School in 2001 and attended Western Oregon College. Principal Jeananne Bloudek teaches religion and social studies to the fifth graders, and Gus Pappelis teaches mathematics, science and music.
Here are the graduates: Ramon Reynage, Willow Majewski, Judy Mcleod, Cameron Ulloa, Kaleb Amerson
