Some Recent and Past PTA Sponsored Annual Events
International Event/Global Harmony Showcase
This event is an immersive experience of beautiful visual displays, cultural music and dress, and engaging hands-on activities that celebrate some of the countries and cultures that are represented in our school community. Using the Montessori philosophy of a tactile learning environment and modeling tolerance, we endeavor to learn more about one another, and the world we live in.
With the intention to foster respect for ourselves and the planet, and to encourage healthy living by celebrating peace, wellness, and appreciation for nature, we gather together for a spring Peace Event, right around Earth Day. At this event, we celebrate our minds, bodies, and Mother Earth!
A beloved Parkside tradition, this annual fundraising event challenges students to commit to a timed run around our track to raise funds for the school, while also promoting community building and school spirit. The energy is palpable as the students cheer each other on, and play games, while friendly competition abounds as the parents try to win the raffle baskets!
