Annual Fundraising Soirée

What a wonderful time to be part of the Princeton Junior School community! We have grown from humble beginnings in a church basement in 1983 with four teachers and twelve preschool students under the leadership of co-founders, Juliana McIntyre Fenn and Helen Craven to five multi-grade suites with 100 students ages 2 through grade 5. For the past 36 years, PJS has been a place where childhood is honored and preserved, creating a strong foundation for our graduates' future successes. Our students consistently go on to attend the finest secondary schools and universities in the country.

This year’s soirée is about celebrating how far we’ve come and Soaring into the future! Held annually, this is our major fundraising event and is organized by the Princeton Junior School Parent Association. The soirée is a time to give to the school as well as to have fun with fellow community members at a festive and celebratory evening. The funds raised at this year’s event will go to help provide technology upgrades to the classroom suites to provide our children with developmentally appropriate, state of the art equipment. Our entire community is excited to celebrate “Soaring into the 20’s” at our Prohibition Speakeasy Soirée.

We ask each family to solicit a minimum of one item that is auctioned off in either our silent or live auction. In addition to being a grand celebration of our educational program, the soirée is an exceptionally fun evening with the opportunity to walk away with amazing gift certificates, themed baskets, student art, and many other memorable items! Please use the attached donation request letters and forms when soliciting auction donations. 

Thanks to the incredible generosity of our parents, alumni, and volunteers, last year’s soirée raised funds necessary to complete our new running track, a wonderful addition to our campus that is well used and beloved by our students.  We are filled with gratitude and look forward to celebrating with our founders, parents, teachers and staff, alumni and community of supporters! The Prohibition Speakeasy Soirée be held February 8, 2020. More information will be provided as plans unfold.
