Sundancer Times

October 2021

Sundancer Families,

We have made it through our 1st nine weeks! Thank you so much for keeping pace with the demands this school year has brought. Please enjoy Fall Intersession October 4-15. We will be offering tutoring for select students the first week (Oct 4-7). Please watch for invitations from your child's teacher. Students return October 18.

Tutoring and Clubs Resume October 26

We will observe a "dead week" October 18-22 for clubs and tutoring. These activities will resume the week of October 25.

Tierra Improvement Projects

Tierra has a couple of projects in the works to beautify our wonderful campus. We will be landscaping the patio in the middle of the campus to make it a more inviting space to gather and learn. I would also like to update the sign in front of the school (close to the front doors), but I would like community input before I move forward. I realize this sign has been through a couple of generations and I respect that. Please see the design that is being proposed below and use the link to vote YES (new lighted sign) or NO (keep existing). The link will close October 22, 2021. Vote here
