Parent Square Invite by Alex Fisher


What’s the Spring Fling?

Spring Fling is our yearly adults-only bash where we come together to honor our fantastic community and enjoy a kid-free evening of fun! It's a chance to dine, dance, bid at auctions, try our luck at the wine pull, and much more. But beyond the festivities, it's a golden opportunity to deepen connections and make new friends without the kiddos in tow. Plus, every moment contributes to supporting our beloved Parkside.

When is Spring Fling this Year?

Spring Fling is on Saturday, March 9th. Doors open at 6:00 PM and the event concludes at 10:00 PM.

What does all the money raised at Spring Fling go towards?

All proceeds from the event are allocated directly to support the Parkside PTA. If you're curious about how Parkside PTA funds are utilized throughout the year, feel free to visit the following page to learn more.

What is Prom?

Read here to learn more about this American tradition...and the "promposal".

What should I wear?

This is an adult-only evening event. While dressing up is not required, this year's theme is Parkside Prom-Dancing Through the Decades and dressing up just makes the evening so much fun and picture worthy. Pick any decade you like (if you read the article, you'll see there's many to choose from).

Wine Pull (NEW THIS YEAR!!!)

It's a wine-lover's dream come true! Every donated bottle becomes part of our Wine Pull event at the Spring Fling, where every attendee gets to "pull" a mystery bottle of wine from our collection for every Wine Pull ticket they purchase. You might discover a hidden gem or the next addition to your list of favorites! It's an excellent way to share your love for wine while supporting the Parkside Montessori community. If you'd like to donate a bottle of wine or coordinate a party to collect wines, please complete the following form. If you have any questions, please contact Alex Fisher or Nicole Weigel.

What are Count-Me-Ins (CMIs)?
