What are Parent Socials at Forest Trail Elementary?
Parent Socials, formerly called Progressive Dinners, is a longstanding tradition within each grade level in which a social event is planned, produced, and attended by parent volunteers. These dinners are highly anticipated FUN evening events often featuring fantastic food and beverage choices, as well as the company of dozens of other parents in your child's grade level.

Who are the hosts?
Hosts are fellow parents of students in your child's grade level. There are two ways to host: offer your home or other venue, or provide food or drink for the event. Food or drink co-hosts work with other co-hosts to determine the best ways to work together to produce a great event.

What does it cost? How do I purchase a ticket?
Tickets are sold via the Hub. Tickets are $45 per person.
Are kids allowed?
No, this is all about parents having fun without the kiddos! Book a sitter and prepare for a fun night just for big people.
What if I cannot attend after purchasing tickets?
We aren't able to refund, but you may find (an)other guest(s) who may buy/ can use your ticket(s).
Where do the funds go?
The Parent Socials program is one of several fundraising efforts for the Forest Trail Booster Club, and all funds collected are donated to the Booster Club to pay for programs that enrich the school. All hosts and organizers of Parent Socials are parent volunteers and financially cover costs for these events. We are so very thankful for to the Forest Trail community for their ongoing support of this fun annual tradition.
