THANK YOU SPONSORS for your support of Fiesta de la Primavera in our efforts to provide a positive, educational and immersive experience for our children through funding for our Language Ambassador Program. YOU are helping make a difference at our school and for our kids.


What is Fiesta de la Primavera?! 

It is ISLA PTO’s BIGGEST fundraiser and gathering each Spring where we come together as a community to mingle. We celebrate, dance, eat & drink. While doing that, we fundraise to provide 100% of the costs of the Language Ambassador Program! Each year, ISLA PTO brings native Spanish-speakers to our school as teaching assistants to our kids. The LAs are an invaluable part of our school and Fiesta de la Primavera is the time that we are able to provide support for this amazing program!! To do that, the PTO gathers donations from both local businesses and within our community through Great Gatherings, gift baskets, gift certificates and countless other types of items!

What is a Language Ambassador’s role?! 

– Working alongside our teachers in day-to-day tasks and interact with students
– Share their native culture w/students
– Offer a more diverse cultural experience
– Aiding in classroom projects & activities
– Providing support for lunch and recess times
– Teaching extra-curricular classes to the kids in Spanish!!

What to expect at Fiesta?! 

– Adult only event - Book your babysitter!
Open to staff, LAs, parents/caregivers AND your friends, family & neighbors!!
– A FUN night out!!
– Support for the LA program + our school as a whole!!
– Mingle with the ISLA community
– Enjoy delicious food, drinks & music

What is a Great Gathering?! 

They are ISLA community-hosted events where you plan a fun get together for kids only, parents only or families. You submit your ideas to the Fiesta Committee and we sell tickets to your event– 100% of the proceeds go back to the ISLA PTO to support the Language Ambassador Program!! 

Great Gatherings can be hosted on your own or with another ISLA friend or family!! These gatherings don’t need to be EXTRAVAGANT or overly spendy. They are meant to bring our kids, parents, LAs & staff together outside of the classroom and enjoy the wonderful community we have here!! We have included some examples below, but any and all ideas are welcome! We’d love to see what ideas might be unique to you & your family!

I don’t know (m)any other ISLA families yet, will I feel left out?

The last thing we’d ever want is for anyone to choose not to come just because they don’t know anyone yet. Fiesta is the time we can all come together as a community and really see what ISLA is all about. We will have greeters at the door to help ease you in and welcome you to your first Fiesta!! You will likely find yourself meeting more families than you’ll ever remember! 

What should I wear?

Business casual; semi formal attire is welcomed, but definitely not required! We want you to wear what you feel good & are comfortable in to have a fun night out with friends & fellow parents!

What happens if we don’t hit our Fiesta fundraising goal?

Even though we have consistently hit our LA fundraising goals over the years… If we do not make that goal, the number of LAs supporting our kids & teachers in their classrooms will be impacted. The amount we raise at Fiesta directly funds the number of LAs we can have in our school the following year.

Fiesta 2024 Thank you for your support!
