Principal's Message

Thank you all for your generosity during the annual Hanksgiving Food drive! Tierra del Sol was able to donate over 1400 items to help feed 500 El Paso families! WOW! Our next opportunity to support our very own Sundancer students is the Angels for Scholars Christmas Tree we have set up in the foyer. Please see below for more information. Together we can do so much!


Our deep appreciation goes out to all our community members who participated in our annual Career Day! We can't thank you enough for spending part of your very busy day doing such great things for kids!


From the entire faculty and staff at Tierra del Sol, we thank you for the privilege of serving your child and this community. Wishing you the merriest of holidays.

Thank You for Supporting our Career Day!

Tutoring Dismissal

Due to the volume of traffic after tutoring and club dismissal Monday-Thursday, we will follow the same procedures for the 3:30 dismissal as we do for the 2:45 dismissal starting in January. You may walk up and pick up your kinder-2nd grade child on the south side of the building. We will also have the valet open for all students if you wish to drive through. The gates will close promptly at 3:45. Please use the visitor parking lot if you will be parking and walking up for your child.

From the Library

  • The Library Challenge this 9 weeks is Genre Bingo. Students can stop by the library to pick up a bingo card if they would like to participate. If a student has all of the genres covered diagonally, across a row or vertically in a column, they can turn in their card for a small prize. If they complete the whole card, they will earn an extra special prize. All completed cards are due on Dec. 21.


  • GRADES 3-6 The deadline to read your 5 Bluebonnet books to attend our BLUE PARTY is Jan. 10.
