Dear Terra Linda Families,
Thank you for helping your children connect to our All-School Assembly on Friday. It was so fun to see everyone's faces! I really miss the kids!
If you weren't able to join in, here is a video of the assembly:
During the assembly, we showed a video made by our staff with messages for all of our students. If you don't want to view the entire assembly, here is the 5-minutes staff video:
Here is a link to last week's Tiger Tale:
I would like ALL families to fill out this Family Survey. It will help us as we plan for the 2020-2021 school year:
If you wish to exclude your student from Zoom meetings and/or Zoom recordings with Terra Linda Staff, please fill out the form below. If you do not fill out this form, we will assume you ARE allowing your student to participate in Zoom meetings with Terra Linda staff and that you ARE allowing Terra Linda staff to record the meetings. Recorded meetings will not be distributed outside a teacher's choice to post a lesson in Seesaw to make the content accessible for those who may be unable to join the live session.
In this Tiger Tale, you will find the following information:
- How to contact us at Terra Linda
- Student Help Desk info
- Optional Family Activities
- "Send Us Pictures" Seesaw Activity
- Enrollment info for incoming Kindergarten students
- Play.Fit.Fun at Home
Did you get a chance to make your schedule for this week yet? Please take a few minutes to read messages from teachers and put together your weekly schedule. You might include the Zoom codes and passwords right on your schedule!
Friday, April 24 is a Staff Development Day. As you read in the message from our District, students are not required to participate in school activities or lessons on this day. However, you might notice some optional activities sent by email or Seesaw. For example, we will hold an all school assembly at 9:30 am for those students who would like to participate and keep our connection with each other going. Moving forward, we will continue Friday assemblies at 9:30 each week until the last day of school on Friday, June 12. Like last week, please continue to join assemblies using one device per family.
Here is the Zoom information for ALL of our Friday assemblies:

Thank you for your continued efforts to keep your children engaged in learning!
Celebrating our Volunteers!
Terra Linda Tigers Community Challenge
At our assembly last Friday, our staff shared a video with positive messages for our students. Now it's your turn! Share messages of encouragement and positivity in a window, on your sidewalk, on a sign you are holding, or any other way you can think of to let your friends and neighbors know you care and that we’re all in this together. Take a picture and post it on Seesaw and we will share some of them at an upcoming assembly!
Students just need to login to Clever, go to Seesaw, and find the Specials Class (click on their name in the upper left corner to reveal the Specials class). Then find the picture activity. Submit a picture of your message of encouragement and positivity!
Zoom Meetings & Recordings Opt-Out Form
If you wish to exclude your student from Zoom meetings and/or Zoom recordings, please fill out the form below. If you do not fill out this form, we will assume you ARE allowing your student to participate in Zoom meetings with Terra Linda staff and that you ARE allowing Terra Linda staff to record the meetings.
Terra Linda Staff "We Miss You" Parade
Teachers and staff will visit Terra Linda students by driving around the school community together. We will drive by the major bus stops and Terra Linda neighborhoods. Be ready to wave at us from your home or a nearby sidewalk!
We will Depart the Terra Linda parking lot in our vehicles on Wednesday, May 6 at 5:30 pm. Watch your email and Seesaw for the route map - coming soon!
It is very important the students and families follow these Safety Guidelines:
- Students and families may not approach cars or run into the street.
- Students that are by themselves must have parent/guardian permission to be outside.
- Everyone should practice social distancing guidelines by remaining at least 6 feet apart from others.
- Current guidance is to wear a mask when outdoors - this is up to each family.
Family Survey & Input Form for 2020-2021
This year, we would like ALL Terra Linda families to answer at least the first 3 questions of our Family Survey & Input Form.
If you would like to add additional input before we make decisions about class placements for the upcoming school year, please answer the remaining questions. You can provide input for any or all of your students who are planning to attend Terra Linda next year.
While we do not take requests for specific teachers, parent/guardian input will be considered in the formation of classes. Teachers carefully consider a number of factors to create balanced classes, including gender, academic levels, second language needs, special education needs, talented and gifted needs, and behavior needs. Families will be notified of class placements prior to the Meet your Teacher event in August.
Family Survey & Input Form is due by Friday, May 15.
Use this form to share your plans for next year and to provide input about class placements for the fall.
Kindergarten registration is open online for the 2020-2021 school year. Please help spread the word to any families and neighbors who have children ready for Kindergarten for the 2020-2021 school year. Students must be at least five years of age on or before September 1, 2020 per state statute, and live within the attendance boundary of our school. We invite you to register early as this assists us in confirming enrollment for staffing purposes.
