An Evening with the STARS

Join SJEF on Friday, September 27, 2019 for an elegant evening celebrating excellence in education. This year, our focus is STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) and we have chosen alumni honorees for the STARS Hall of Fame who have excelled in those areas. Money raised at this annual gala supports innovative learning opportunities for the K-12 students of all SJUSD schools.
