Equity Committee-

Chairs:  Spring Dawson-McClure

The Equity Committee seeks to assure robust representation and consideration of groups experiencing historic and enduring marginalization (due to their race, ethnicity, gender identity or sexual orientation) in school activities, policies and practices. We achieve this through community programming for minority students and their families, and community outreach to groups underrepresented at TES. Additionally our group compiles existing research evidence, completes new data collection, and directly advocates to the TES Board. If you are interested in participating in our group please email equity@tes-ca.com

Committee Meetings:

  • March 1st 2020, 4-5:30pm @ Orange County Library Rm 230
  • November 3rd, 2019 12pm-1pm @ Orange County Library

Diverse Family Gathering

December 8th at 1pm

We are pleased to invite you to the second 2019-2020 Diverse Family Gathering on December 8th 1-3pm at the Dennis Residence. These gatherings are an opportunity for the families of students from minoritized racial and ethnic groups to come together quarterly and build community. 

We will have Karaoke! This is an opportunity for kids to come together and play while parents socialize. Please bring a snack to share and a favorite game.

Community Mixer

July 29th 5:15-7PM

You are invited to a Community Mixer at GOLD PARK during Meet the Teacher Night on July 29th. The goal is to provide an opportunity for families to connect while they are at school for Meet the Teacher Night. The mixer will run from 5:15-7PM to allow both lower and middle school families to attend. The mixer will include light refreshments, drinks, and community-building activities for kids. Attendees will be asked to wear name tags. Students will have the opportunity to write their hopes and dreams in chalk on the sidewalk. Hula hoops, balls, and bubbles will be available for play and connection.

*Please leave your vehicle at the school and utilize the riverwalk to walk to Gold Park. We should be mindful of the rest of the community’s access to the park. The path will be marked for new families.
