sjs_career_2192Laura Robinson Special Agent FBI, a crime scene investigator, created a ‘crime scene’ for a 7th grade class. Agent Robinson explains that a crime scene investigation is the meeting point of science, logic and law. "Processing a crime scene" is a long, tedious process that involves purposeful documentation of the conditions at the scene and the collection of any physical evidence that coul­d possibly illuminate what happened and point to who did it.

RED BANK, NJ  - Approximately twenty successful professionals visited the Saint James middle school (6th, 7th & 8th grades) on Friday, March 15, to participate in Career Day 2013, an event designed to enlighten our students about the possibilities for their futures. The event exposed our students to a variety of career fields and professions. An event like this, which educates our students about future opportunities, can clarify a student's mind and help motivate them to work hard toward a goal or career they are passionate about.
