Parents Association Events

Celebrate Spring - The Great Outdoors

May 14 and May 15, 2021

The Parents Association is excited to invite you to our annual spring fundraiser, Celebrate Spring! This year’s theme will be The Great Outdoors celebrated with an outdoor urban hike and “party pods” in your backyard. Our goal is to create safe spaces for the celebration of your choice, with fun thematic elements for the hike and a virtual live auction to raise funds for our school.

Friday, May 14

In lieu of a luncheon this year, we will host an urban hike on Friday, May 14 at 8:30 a.m. to kick off the weekend outdoors! Join us for a socially distanced hike with coffee, a photobooth, gift bags and other goodies as you enjoy time with other parents in your student’s grade.

Hike times will be staggered by grade starting with kindergarten parents at 8:30 a.m. and ending with Grade 12 parents at 9:30 a.m., so you can spend time with your fellow class parents in the great outdoors!

Hike tickets are sold out.

Please email with any questions.

Saturday, May 15

In lieu of a gala this year, we will host a virtual live auction on Saturday, May 15 at 4 p.m. with real-time bidding from the comfort of your (or a friend’s!) home. Auction items in the past have included luxurious villa rentals, all-inclusive hotel stays and private shopping experiences. We will open up the auction site ahead of the event so you can browse the exciting offers we will have this year.

We hope you'll join us online to bid on fabulous packages and raise your virtual paddle to support our redesigned Little Theater performance space. View the live auction program for complete program details.
