SLLIS Fundraising 2021-2022

SLLIS’ annual “Spirit of Giving” campaign will officially launch on Tuesday, November 30th, in conjunction with Giving Tuesday (a “global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world”). Contributions to SLLIS will support our innovative work within our bilingual programming in the Chinese Program, the French Program, the Spanish Program, and the Middle School Program. More specifically, it will support SLLIS’ ongoing literacy initiative, thus enhancing our language arts curriculum and ensuring all teachers have the tools they need to continue to improve literacy practices in the classroom.
