Trillium in Bloom

Posted by admin

The annual Trillium in Bloom is an important event for the school and community, bringing us together to acknowledge our accomplishments, thank our volunteers, and kickstart fundraising for the next year’s special projects. As a charter school, our public funding is limited. We need the support of families for their students. There are many ways that you may contribute to the school, including ways that offer something in return. Events like Trillium in Bloom are worth their weight in priceless memories.

This year, it will be especially fun, because we’ve got a theme! ADULT PROM. Did you ever wish you could step back into your senior year of high school and attend prom just one more time? Well, now is your chance. Our night will include dinner, DJ dancing, silent auction, raffles, prom pictures, and a cash bar. The event is 21+ but onsite childcare will be available for $15/child. Tickets are $20/person and may be purchased at the door, or reserved in advance through email hidden; JavaScript is required.

RSVP “Yes” or “Interested” to the Facebook event, to receive sneak peeks of the food, entertainment, and auction items. Sign up to volunteer to receive discounted tickets! Volunteers are needed to set up, clean up, and to manage tickets sales and the auction. Email email hidden; JavaScript is required if you or someone you know can fulfill these roles.

Communication Preferences Survey

Posted by admin

At the end of last year, those of you who attended the Parent Listening Session let us know that one of your top concerns was communication. You wanted to know more about what your student was doing to meet their educational goals, and what our administration was doing to meet our organizational goals. We heard you. In these first weeks of school, we have had several urgent messages to get out, from our decision to remain open during the heat advisory, to announcing our plan to keep kids safe at school, in light of changes to DACA. At the end of the day, we felt confident that everyone was on the same page, but we would have liked to get there sooner. Next time, we plan to use our understanding of where you are most often engaging with our content. Toward that goal, we need your help. Please fill out our Communication Preferences Survey, as soon as possible.
