PTC Club and Event Happenings:

A special thanks to:

  • Kristine Baker for serving as the PTC Secretary for the past 6 months.  She has volunteered in many different roles at Terra Linda and we are grateful for her time.  She is passing the baton on to Emily Struthers who is our new PTC Secretary.
  • Mrs. Piper for sharing her love and understanding of Common Core with Terra Linda Parents at last night’s PTC meeting.  She is full of ideas on how to support your child from home!  We will be posting some of these ideas on social media in the days to come.  Stay tuned!

Girls on the Run

We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. We envision a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.

Does this sound like a program you’d like to bring to Terra Linda?  We are looking for Committee Chair to head up this initiative. If you are interested in learning more about Girls on the Run or would like to head this up, please contact:
