Important Re-Enrollment Info for 2018-2019

Posted by admin

To hold your student(s)’ enrollment for the upcoming school year, you must return the attached form, 2018-2019 Returning Student Form, by Friday, April 13, 2018. It may be received by Sharon at the Front Office or by your student(s)’ homeroom teacher / adviser. This form also serves to enter any new student siblings that you hope to enroll in 2018-2019. They will be given priority in the lottery. Review the lottery process here.

The lottery begins the 2nd week of April. After re-enrolls are processed, any open slots will be filled with new families. Both new and returning families will be notified of their enrollment status by the end of the 2nd week of April. Registration packets, and the 2018-2019 school calendar, will be sent home with your student(s) on Monday, May 01, 2018, and are due back by Friday, June 01, 2018.

Enrollment often continues up to the last day of school, and beyond, with slots filled in the order that inquiries are received. Know of friends or family looking for a change in their child(ren)’s education? Be sure to encourage them to contact us! Things change throughout the summer; some grade levels may have a waiting list, while there will be openings in others.

But our office staff will be here, working hard to keep the enrollment information up to date. Do your part to support them, during this hectic Enrollment season, by responding with timeliness to this request. Questions? Call 503-285-3833 or email email hidden; JavaScript is required.

Enroll Now for Fall 2018

Posted by admin

Hello, Prospective Families! Enrollment for Fall 2018 has begun. Start the process by touring our school at the first Open House of 2018 – Thursday, March 1st, from 5:30-7:30pm. If you already know that you will be applying, this is a great opportunity to drop off your application.

The TCS 2018-19 Application is available for download from our website and in print at the Front Office. All applications submitted by March 30, 2018 will be entered into a blind lottery, to be drawn on April 4, 2018.

Before you apply, we recommend a few things. First, attend an Open House. Open House is an informational meeting and an opportunity for self-guided tours of the building. There are no children’s activities, but children are still welcome. Your child may meet their future teacher!

Then, dig deep into our website. Make sure that you feel comfortable with who we are and what we stand for. A good place to start is our Trillium FAQs. Here, you will also find answers to questions you may have about Enrollment.

If you have further questions about our school, the enrollment process, or the application, please contact Patrice, email hidden; JavaScript is required.

Still Enrolling for 2017-18

Posted by admin

We currently have openings in the 1st, 3rd, and all Middle and High School grades, for the 2017-18 school year, and will begin accepting applications for the 2018-2019 school year in January. Please download and print an application from tinyurl.com/TrilliumApplication. Once you complete the application, you may submit by US Mail or in person.

Trillium Charter School
Attn: Debra Lazzaretti
5420 N Interstate Ave
Portland, OR 97217

Debra (email hidden; JavaScript is required) is also your contact person for scheduling an alternate school tour, and for questions regarding the application.

Applicants are highly encouraged to review our website and attend an Open House before applying.

The Middle and High School programs at Trillium provide students with a framework for understanding the larger community in which they live, centering on people, culture, identity, and politics. Through engagement with and service to “the real world,” they develop a skill set that can be used throughout their lives, to solve problems at work, in their personal relationships, and in their communities. From 6th-12th grade, the scope of community studies broadens from a focus on the local and regional, to a focus on national and international; as skills-based learning narrows to writing, research methods, and computer literacy.

The K-5th program at Trillium Public Charter School provides a platform for safe exploration of the three core study areas, and a variety of enrichment areas, such as art, music, movement, and drama. Our mission is to promote students’ discovery of the ways their experience is interconnected with others in their community and their world.

If you cannot make the Open House, tours are held every Friday by appointment. Email email hidden; JavaScript is required to schedule. Upon arrival, check in at the front office of the main K-12 school. Please no drop-ins, as they may be unable to meet with you.

Trillium Preschool offers an emergent curriculum that invites children to revisit, reflect, and reinterpret their understanding of the world through play, art, and dialogue. Teachers listen closely to what is happening in the classroom, and act on their observations, to tailor the program to the specific needs and interests of current students.
