Good Evening Cheetah Families,
This is Mandy Bedard, principal of Tierra Bonita, with your weekly announcements.

Mark your calendars for our next Family Dine Out Night which will be Thursday, February 16th at the Chili’s on Scripps Poway Parkway.  Chili’s will donate 15% of the event day sales back to Tierra Bonita.  Let’s fill Chili’s up with TBES families just like we did during the Islands dine out night!
All are welcome to our next PTA Association and Board meeting this coming Wednesday, February 8th beginning at 6:30pm in the staff lounge.  Come find out more about our upcoming spring events and ways that you can get involved.  
Parents of children with a fifth birthday between June 1st and September 1st, 2017 who wish to enroll their child into a TK class, MUST place their name on a District Interest Wait List.  The wait list opens on March 1st
Follow this link to the District website to access the wait list: http://powayusd.com/en-US/Departments/Learning-Support/Enrollment/Transitional-Kindergarten

Please note, parents of children with a fifth birthday between September 2, 2017 and December 2, 2017 do not need to place their child’s name on the wait list.  Your child should be enrolled in TK and the wait list is not necessary.  You will need to enroll your child at Tierra Bonita on Tuesday, May 2nd.
This coming school year, Tierra Bonita Elementary School will open a NEW half-day Preschool Class.  The class hours will be 8 – 11 AM with 4 year old students attending on M/W/F and 3 year old students on T/Th.  Parents can choose to participate/volunteer in the class 2-3 days per month for a reduced tuition as noted on the website.  “Registration Request” forms for 2017-2018 will be accepted February 1 – March 1, 2017. The form is available and can be completed online: http://powayusd.com/preschool
All completed forms are automatically sent directly to the PUSD Preschool Administration Office.  A lottery process may be required if the requests for a class exceeds openings in the class. Parents will be notified starting the week of March 13th about class placements or wait list status. Registration Request forms received after March 1st will be processed in the order received. Children must be 3 before September 1, 2017 to enroll in preschool.
