What is PartyBook?

Part of what makes St. James' Episcopal School so special is the strong sense of community and our amazing diversity. What better way to celebrate that community than to join in the festivities of PartyBook at St. James'?

PartyBook is a series of parent-produced parties that we hope will build and strengthen our community. It is a great way to meet new families, learn a new skill, or enjoy a memorable outing with your child while at the same time supporting our school's literary programs.

This year's funds will go toward St. James' literacy initiatives, including professional development around reading and 21st century teaching and learning. All proceeds go directly to the school.

Comedy Night

hosted by Mike & Michele Sanchez + Marie Schley & Nick Morton

Friday, October 13
7:00–10:00 p.m.

Come enjoy a casual, adults only evening of sausages and German wine & beer on the Sanchez's patio.  Nick Morton, a St. James' dad and stand up comedian, will be gathering a posse of fellow degenerates from the stand up comedy world to do a short set of jokes.  If there is any particular subject matter you find offensive, uncomfortable or downright is sure to be discussed.  Please come.  It should be funny.  Seriously.
