“I can’t believe you failed me! I worked hard in this class and I deserve a passing grade.” My student emailed me this message recently after she discovered her final grade at the end of the term. This student had completed only half the assignments due, even after I had allowed her extra time to […]

Hello, prospective Trillium families! Your wait is over. Enrollment for Fall 2018 has begun. Start the process by touring our school at the first Open House of 2018 – Thursday, February 22nd, from 5:30-7pm. If you already know that you will be applying, this is a great opportunity to drop off your application. RSVP on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/1995519190666214/
The TCS 2018-19 Application is available for download from our website (tinyurl.com/TrilliumApplication) and in print at the Front Office. All applications submitted by March 31, 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 Trillium’s website (trilliumcharterschool.org). Make sure that you feel comfortable with who we are and what we stand for. A good place to start is our Trillium FAQs (tinyurl.com/TrilliumFAQs). 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 Mays, [email protected]

Oregon is especially focused on this event because it marks the first U.S. location within the Path of Totality, where projections expect almost two minutes […]
While I do not yet consider myself a seasoned mom, I also no longer feel like a new mom, either. Grateful for the growing confidence I project (most days), I smile when I reflect on the early months of motherhood; back to the days when the pediatrician’s office was on speed dial. I remember the nervous […]
“What do you want to be when you grow up?” How often do we ask our kids this question? Through the years my kids have given many enlightening and often hilarious answers. Once, my son told me he wanted to work as a “ninja-neer” like his daddy, and I wonder if he imagined my husband […]
Last summer while on vacation I turned to my husband and announced, “I’m thinking of going back to school and applying for the bachelor’s degree completion program at Pacific University.” He took a swig of his beer and said, “Okay. You should probably do it now.” I finished my wine and went inside to find […]
“Nope, not going to happen” was my consistent response to my husband when he put homeschooling on the table. He always reminded me that I have a Masters of Science in Education, and I would remind him of my spastic organizational skills. Privatized education, at-home learning, and the public education system; we explored them all, […]
While Common Core math has helped my eight-year-old in school, it has exceeded my 40-year-old addition skills. I was in the car with the kids one day, attempting to add double-digit numbers. I vocalized the problem out loud, simultaneously picturing it in my mind’s eye, and vainly attempted to carry figures. My second grader overheard me, […]
