who yearn for knowledge, and then 
strive to make a difference for others.

The Best


Parkside Night Owls are always asking
"When are The Cheerleaders coming back?"

Do not underestimate the power of
a positive impression in the life of a child.

Our L.H.S. student mentors 
and faithful tutors are the best!

Sunday Salute 2-21-2016


We're all in the  

position to mentor youngsters.
Kids need role models because they
should chase their dreams and find success.

Congratulations to wrestler Andrew Wise,
 a Mt. Carmel student athlete and the
newest IHSA 
220 pound state champion.

Did we mention Andrew's a 
hero to some NIGHT OWLS as well?

Tuesday and Thursday tutoring sessions?
YES!  

Just where would our NIGHT OWLS
 be without the essential support of
 Parkside's P.T.O.
& Cra-Wa-La?  

Together our after-school staff
works in harmony with
Lawrenceville High School
 and Community volunteers.

Sunday Salute 2-7-2016

"As children, our imaginations are vibrant, 

and our hearts are open. We believe that the 

bad guy always loses and that the tooth fairy 

sneaks into our rooms at night to put money

under our pillow. Everything amazes us, and

we think anything is possible. We continuously 

experience life with a sense of newness and

unbridled curiosity."  

                                                                     ~Yehuda Berg
