What is Fiesta de la Primavera?
Fiesta de la Primavera is ISLA PTO’s BIGGEST fundraiser and gathering each Spring! It is an adult-only event that welcomes not only our staff, LAs, parents/caregivers, but also your friends, families & neighbors you may want to include. We aim for a fun night out with the opportunity to support our school while mingling with the ISLA community and enjoying delicious food, drinks & music!
Why is it so important to raise funds at Fiesta?
Each year, ISLA welcomes Language Ambassadors (LAs) to our school- A program that is 100% supported by the funds raised at Fiesta! These LAs are from various Spanish-speaking countries and are our school’s paraprofessionals. They work alongside our teachers in the classroom, provide support for lunch/recess times as well as teaching extra-curricular classes to the kids in Spanish! The LAs are an invaluable part of our school, and Fiesta is the time that we are really able to support this amazing program.
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.
Volunteer your time & talents!
There are so many opportunities to get involved with tasks of all sizes! We have roles big & small as well as one-time and on-going!! This is a terrific way for new families to get involved and get to know members of the ISLA community. Anyone can help and we are able to work with you to find the right opportunity regardless of the amount of time you feel comfortable contributing.
Please join us for a great night of food, drinks and entertainment with exciting auction items!! Spread the word about this fun event and grab your tickets today!!

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!
Who can I contact with questions?
