Welcome to James Sales Elementary!

James Sales Elementary is located in Parkland, WA, near PLU and Joint Base Lewis McChord. Our school is made up of nearly 460 students in grades K-5 and we employ 60 highly qualified and dedicated staff members.  The staff are proud of the strong connections that are made between the home and school. We believe all students can learn more each day. Throughout the school year, we will continue to work together to provide the students the best possible opportunities in preparing them to be successful in reading, writing, math, and science, creating a well-rounded education, by developing a solid foundation.  At James Sales, we believe instruction must be academically challenging, engage each student, and also be exciting to promote further exploration of new ideas. Parents, teachers, support staff, and administration all have an important role to encourage our children to become active learners.
