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 literacy programs, including professional development for teaching reading.

Work Out St. James' 

hosted by WO-LA

Sunday, September 30
5:00 – 6:00 p.m.

Want to give your child a break from the iPhone/iPad and get them working out with other St. James students?  And better yet, get your own workout in with other parents at the same time? Come join us for a St. James-only workout class at LA’s newest studio, WO·LA!  Recently featured on ABC7 and The Hollywood Reporter, WO·LA was created to give youth and adults in urban LA an inspiring way to collectively invigorate their bodies, minds and souls via an exhilarating 45-minute resistance and cardio workout.  St. James students will be working with one of WO·LA’s instructors in their own dedicated studio, while St. James parents will be simultaneously doing a workout in a second studio next door with another WO·LA instructor.  After all the hard work, enjoy some healthy refreshments and a swag bag of WO·LA apparel. Appropriate for children ages 6 and older.
