St. James School won't raise tuition

St. James School has announced that tuition for 2009-10 will not increase from the current school year. Parish pastor, the Rev. Bill Zavaski, and Principal Judy Pappas made the decision with parish, finance and school councils.

"We realize that the state of the economy has impacted all St. James families and we are responding with compassion and understanding for the sacrifice our families make for their children," stated Father Zavaski.

St. James hopes that families with means would consider sponsoring a student whose family is having trouble in order to make up some of the deficit it will incur. The school recently completed a new school and information center.
