Student Accomplishments

Last weekend, several students at TL and CMS performed in Disney's Descendents The Musical with San Carlos Children's Theater. Many of our students acted, sang, and danced the weekend away. They really did bring down the house. Congratulations to all our participants.


At TL, we have a Math Club and students recently participated in the American Math Competition. We had three school winners, Qicheng, Dennis Yang, first place, Lumi Yaida, second place, and Ethan Law, third place. Usually the average score is 9.74 out of 25. TL students scored 18, 16, 14 out of 25. Congratulations!


This year our 7th grade basketball team went undefeated. They won the finals on Thursday beating Ralston 36-14. Congratulations!


We have 31 students participating in Technovation for girls on Tuesdays and Fridays at TL in the Learning Commons.


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]
