Latinos Unified in Community (LUC)


Latinos Unified in Community (LUC) are district-sponsored student groups within the Thompson School District that are dedicated to fostering a supportive environment for Latino/a students while remaining inclusive to all interested students and staff. Our mission and goals align closely with TSD's Strategic Plan, particularly focusing on creating an inclusive and supportive culture. Specifically, we aim to ensure that all facilities are welcoming, safe, inclusive, and meet the needs of students, staff, and the community, in line with Desired Outcome 2.4.

Our mission is to create respectful, affirming, and supportive environments within schools to empower students to advocate for themselves and to support each other in the positive growth of their cultural awareness and self-identity.

LUC has created a safe environment in which Latino students can gather and spend time with each other while helping out our community.

As members of LUC, participants engage in various activities that promote cultural awareness, cross-cultural inclusivity, and educational advancement. These activities include learning about and appreciating other cultures, actively contributing to cross-cultural inclusivity, establishing and working towards educational goals, supporting one another academically, attending leadership and diversity conferences, and participating in enjoyable club activities.

The field trips we’ve gone on have really helped focus on the cultural aspect and teach us more about different cultures and the opportunities in education they bring.
