Spring Fling 2019

Come celebrate Spring and the ending of a wonderful school year with the 2019 Barton Hills Elementary Spring Fling!  Missed the silent auction and all of the great food at carnival?
Not to worry!  Enjoy both at our Spring Fling held right here in our Barton Hills neighborhood on Saturday April 6th at 7PM.

Put on your best spring-time attire and join us as we raise money that will go directly to teacher grants that support our children.  Enjoy delicious bites from Easy Tiger, bid on some amazing silent auction items, dance and enjoy the spring evening.

Why do we need another fundraiser?
Recently the AISD Budget Stabilization Task Force made budget reduction recommendations to the school board that could have a direct impact to our school and its budget.  Now, more than ever, we need to raise as much money as we can so that we can continue to provide our children with the very best education.  More about the task force’s recommendations can be found here: https://www.austinisd.org/advisory-bodies/bstf

What is the Spring Fling?
The Spring Fling is a PTA sponsored adult only party and silent auction benefiting BHE. This year, the Spring Fling will replace the BHE After Dark party as an official PTA sponsored event.
