Good Evening Cheetah Families,
This is Mandy Bedard, principal of Tierra Bonita, with your weekly announcements. 
We love our volunteers and it is our turn to spoil you!  All volunteers are invited to join us for a Volunteer Breakfast in your honor on Tuesday, June 5th at 8:00 AM in our multi-purpose room.  We look forward to seeing you there!
Please join us in dining out at El Ranchito anytime 6am through 9pm on Thursday! Grab breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner and 20% comes back to our school. Just present the attached flyer at the POWAY ROAD LOCATION. 
When you stop in on Thursday, please extend a special thank you to El Ranchito Taco Shop for their ongoing generosity throughout the year. They donated all the chips and salsa when our school hosted taco night at the Ronald McDonald House at Rady Children's Hospital in February and they have catered several meals throughout the year for special events for students and staff. Tierra Bonita loves our extended Cheetah Family in the community! Thank you, El Ranchito!
We hope that you will all be able to join us for our 10th Annual Art Walk and Family Picnic on Tuesday, June 12th.  The Art Walk and Family Picnic will begin at 11:15 AM and will end at 12:15 PM.  Don’t forget your chairs, blankets, shade, and favorite lunch treats.  The schedule for the event is as follows:

*Parents of students receiving an award will be notified via a Connect Ed message.
While we understand that many families attend the picnic and want to leave campus with their child directly from the blacktop, we request your support in following the program listed above.  This will allow us to ensure student safety and account for all students throughout the event.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
Please see the information below from our Food and Nutrition department:
Nutrition Account Funds will Carry Over to Next School Year
All funds in your child’s nutrition account will be carried over to the next school year as long as your student remains enrolled in the District.
Nutrition Account Transfers or Refunds.
Parents/guardians may also have remaining funds transferred to a sibling’s account or request a refund by completing a refund request form that can be found on our webpage at www.powayusdnutrition.com under frequently used forms.  Parents should also disable any automatic payments set-up through MySchoolBucks at https://www.MySchoolBucks.com  to ensure your student’s account will not be reloaded.
Although many parents are interested in becoming more involved in their children’s education, not all of us have the time to be classroom volunteers or Foundation or PTA committee members.  If you are a parent that would like to know more about school programs that promote student learning, School Site Council may be right for you.  School Site Council meets 3-4 times per year and they help to develop the school plan and budget that guides us towards our goal of continuous improvement.  The Council is made up of parents and staff who serve for two years.  There are multiple positions open for the 2018 – 2019 school year.  If you are interested in being a member of School Site Council, please fill out and return the attached nomination form to Cheri Kellhofer by Thursday, May 31st.  The election to elect new members will take place at Back to School Night for the 2018 - 2019 school year.
If you love kids and enjoy being outdoors becoming a Character Coach may be the job for you!  If you are interested in becoming a character coach, please email Cheri Kellhofer at ckellhofer@powayusd.com.
Thank you and have a wonderful evening!
