Partybook 2016 Fall Season

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.
