On March 26th, The Scranton School invited the school and northeastern Pennsylvania community to campus to enjoy “An Evening at The Scranton School: Celebrating Our Kids”.

The evening began with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the school library. Attendees enjoyed a social hour chatting with each other, networking, and learning about the school in the beautiful library. Sticking with a progressive theme throughout the evening, dinner was served in the school’s gymnasium. The gymnasium went through a 36-hour makeover that provided the perfect atmosphere for dinner stations. Finally, the large crowd moved towards the playroom to enjoy dessert in our expansive playroom located in the Weinberg Wing that overlooks the beautiful Sordoni Family Playground.
