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 also supporting strategic initiatives and programming at our school. This year's PartyBook will support BeyondSchool and the Robotics Program.
