Here we grow!...

Hello St. James' Families,


As some of you may be aware, St. James' Church and Preschool has been in the process of developing a Master Plan for growth and expansion of our facilities and shared spaces, including the preschool building. Our Capital Campaign was kicked off on April 25 to begin raising funds for what we are deeming "Phase One" of the remodel and expansion of our existing space. Many of you came out to Preschool Picassos to support raising funds for the school, which will ultimately go toward Phase One, and include upgraded school facilities with larger dedicated classrooms and more multi-purpose space. We truly appreciate all of you who have given generously in support of our Preschool.


In an effort to limit the disruption of the students and inconvenience our families, we will temporarily use classroom facilities for our upcoming 2019-20 preschool year at First Presbyterian Church. We are very grateful to the pastor, Martha Langford, and their members, for allowing us this opportunity while we build. The decision was made recently by our School Board that we should plan to begin the school year there since it is projected that construction will begin in mid-year. I, along with the board, agree that it would be ideal to not interrupt a year or a semester with a move to another location. There is not a school there currently, so it will be the same St. James' Preschool...just "on location!"


For those of you returning to St. James' Preschool next fall, we will be starting school on August 26, 2019, at 205 S. Franklin Street in La Grange. The days and times of our program will not change, nor will the format. We will certainly need to modify some of our current programming to fit the new space, and we may find ourselves with some great opportunities we don't have in our existing school! These are exciting times, and I hope you will share in the enthusiasm that our staff and I have about this endeavor. 


I look forward to discovering God's vision and the church's mission for St. James' Preschool, and I invite any of you who wish to contribute to this effort to get involved! Thank you all so much for your prayers and continued support of St. James!



Laurie Krupala, Director
