The Back to School Cocktail Party will be held on Saturday, September 8th at 7:30pm on the front lawn of the school.  

​The Back to School Cocktail Party is a chance for teachers and parents to get together in an informal, casual setting without the children.  Take the opportunity to enjoy one last summer evening while meeting other parents, chatting with your child's teacher or getting to know our school administrators.  There are no formal presentations or lengthy speeches ... just a relaxing time with the school community.

​For further information, please contact bts-party@sjspta.com
