Latinx Festival 2017

The month of October is Hispanic Heritage Month.

We at Trillium Charter School are dedicated to fostering a community of diverse students and families, who are committed to creating a positive and celebratory environment for all members. Highlighting the importance of the Hispanic and Latinx staff, families, and neighbors in our school is both fun and critical to our mission as an inclusive educational space.

That is why this year we are holding the First Annual Latinx Festival on October 14, 2017, from 5-8pm. Latinx Festival is a family friendly event and fundraiser, open to all who want to celebrate Latinx and Hispanic culture, while raising funds for our school. General admission tickets are on sale now, $5 per individual, or $15 per household (3+). BUY TICKETS HERE.

What Will the Funds be Used For?

The funds will be used to support our school, and a unique approach to education that is based in constructivism and focused on developing leaders for social justice. As a charter school, we depend on fundraising for a lot of our funding.

This year, we hope to dedicate funds to:

  • Help support our newly implemented English Language Learning program for our incoming immigrant families;
  • Improve the functionality of our outdoor space to make it as safe and fun as possible, including the addition of bike racks to accommodate the increasing number of staff and students who bike to school; and
  • Improve our technology, including the purchase of Chromebooks for all staff and students.
