Yearbooks with Treering

TIERRA LINDA MIDDLE SCHOOL is using Treering to build the yearbook. That means your yearbooks have a personal touch: your book includes two free pages for you to personalize with your photos and your memories. Get started by creating your free account! 


You can personalize and order your book for $35.97 until April 15, 2023. (The personal pages are totally optional, so if you just want the more traditional yearbook, that's okay, too.)

Here is the link to get started!


If your child is in need of a scholarship for the yearbook, please contact Kristen Ugrin, [email protected].  


Parent volunteers 

One of our electives, Off The Grid, is looking to bring in experts from our community in the fields of: agriculture (including hydroponics), water purification, and solar energy.  If you or someone you know is in one of these fields and would like to come talk to the class, please contact Christina Morrison at [email protected].
