Our 3rd Annual Jog-A-Thon was a success!

Thank you to the many volunteers, parents, grandparents, community members, and Sunset High School students who came out to cheer on the students. We had a blast!


Please help us finish this fundraising campaign strong, just like the kids did on the track this week. Every donation, no matter the size, helps our Terra Linda community.

All donation envelopes, with all money included, need to be turned into teachers by Friday, Oct. 27.

Please make sure your student’s name and teacher is written on the envelope. The final day to collect pledges through PledgeStar is also Oct. 27.

If your employer matches donations, please use the tax receipts that come home with students this week to apply for matching funds. Additional 2017 Jogathon Tax Receipts can also be printed. If you are a Nike employee, please make your donation directly through the Nike giving website to get the match.

We are partnering with the Cornell Pizzicato for our next Dining for Dollars event on Tuesday, Nov. 14.

They will be donating 20% of their entire day’s sales to Terra Linda (including gift cards)!

The restaurant has very limited seating, so it’s recommended that you call in advance for take out orders, or have it delivered to you!  If you are unable to participate that day, you are able to order gift cards by emailing Becky Seppala at

Also, students may submit this Budding Chef form to Becky Seppala or bring it to the school office if they would like their own pizza recipe to be entered into a contest to be the featured pizza special for the day of our event!
