Spotlight Feature #1: Our Back-To-School Campus Tour…

$36 Million+ worth of construction and renovation projects on the TLHS campus are nearing completion as the Summer of 2019 rolls along.

Many, many things have changed on our beloved Terra Linda High School campus over the past 50+ years. Here’s a rundown of the most recent renovation and construction projects that we’ll be able to check-out on our ‘Back-To-School Campus Tour’ – Friday, October 11th, 2019.

Over the past few years several large building projects have been initiated on the TLHS campus at an expected cost of $ 36 Million+. These include the construction of a NEW 2-story Student Commons Building, which will house a Cafeteria, Kitchen, Music Classroom, Drama Classroom, Black Box Theater, Library, Computer Classroom, Accessory Classrooms and Staff Lounge.

  • If you would like to learn more about these specific TLHS projects you can review a .pdf file, which contains the SRCS June 2019 Summary Update, by ‘clicking’ the ‘Download’ button below. Or, if you really want to dive deep into these issues you can visit the San Rafael City Schools Bond Program Website for even more details.

Construction site-work begun earlier this year included the renovation/removal of our famously, or infamously, ‘Bunny Covered Amphitheater’.

THEN – The ‘Bunny Covered Amphitheater’ – June 12, 1969

NOW – The ‘Completely Gone Amphitheater’ – July 2019
(Do they really know what they’re going to be missing?)

We’ve made arrangements with the Leadership Class at TLHS to provide us with several Student Docents for our ‘Back-to-School Campus Tour’ on Friday afternoon, October 11th, 2019 from 3:00 pm until 4:30 pm. We’ll meet in front of the Gymnasium (next to the football field) and proceed ahead into the campus environs from there.

Inside this Gymnasium we ate food, sang songs, played sports, danced our first dances, kissed our first loves and played ‘EarthBall’ on our butts during PE Classes. Talk about memories to remember!

The swimming pool is still the same – the football field is definitely not…

The Tartan track surface, AstroTurf playing field and brand new all-weather bleachers were installed within the last 10-15 years. They are a far cry from the dirt, grass, sand and woodchip-filled broad jump pits of the mid- 1960’s that we sweated upon.

Once a Trojan – Always a Trojan! After 50+ years these words still ring true. The Blue-n-Gold colors are as vibrant and strong as ever – they’ve defined generations of students’ beliefs and fashion choices – up to and including ourselves here in 2019.

There’s only one Terra Linda High School (no matter how much it’s changed in 50+ years). We hope you will join us on Friday afternoon, October 11th, 2019 beginning at 3:00 pm for our ‘Back-to-School Campus Tour’. We’ll be cruising down memory lane and gliding back into the present-day reality of what Terra Linda High School has become here in 2019 – all in 90 minutes, or less!

While this sign is more modern than what we had on campus in 1969 – the values learned, the intentions aspired to, and the activities that take place on the TLHS campus everyday – are still pretty much the same as what we enjoyed/experienced over 50-years ago.

Progress and change are good – keeping up with things is essential to understanding how we got to where we are today.

C U back on-campus in October!
