TBES Cheetah Weekly News 9-25-20

Dear Tierra Bonita Families, 

WHOA!!! Can you believe it WE ARE OPENING ON OCTOBER 12TH!!! I’m so pumped and excited that our on-campus students will be starting school on site. Our teachers and staff are so happy too. It is a strange time and things will look different, but the BEST part of it is that WE will be together. So get your kiddos ready with a mask and just in case they forget pack an extra in a plastic bag to keep in your child’s backpack and LET’S DO THIS!


Please look out for an email early next week for am/pm student placements.:)
