The Parkview Lassies are an all female drum and bugle corps. All female drum and bugle corps in Springfield originated at a time when the schools did not have many extra curricular activities for women to participate in. The principal of Central High School created the Kilties as an opportunity for women in the school to get involved. It became so popular that as each high school was established, they incorporated an all female drum and bugle corps into their school activities. The Parkview Lassies were established in 1956. This group is a large part of Parkview's history and tradition.
