New Glasses

This past week, 24 of our students received glasses courtesy of Vision to Learn.  The van showed up on our campus, gave thorough optometry evaluations to students who qualified, and let students choose glasses.  This amazing opportunity was due in part to our school nurse, Kelly Shepherd.  Her persistence with the district officials and organization of the entire event made this opportunity a reality.  Many phone calls had to be made to families and forms had to be completed.  Thank you, Kelly, for helping our students and families!

Music Volunteers

Music for Minors (MFM) is a nonprofit organization that has brought music education to local school children for more than 30 years.  MFM enables many children to have their first- and sometimes only- music education.
We need many more volunteers to meet the needs of our elementary students at Terrell.  Please help us to get the word out and generate interest in this rewarding volunteer opportunity.

MFM volunteers are parents, grandparents and other community members who share a love of music and children.  Volunteers are required to complete a comprehensive training course offered every fall.  Once training is completed, volunteers provide one 30 minute music lesson each week in assigned classrooms.  These lessons feature singing, movement and dance, rhythm activities, music theory, and songs from many cultures.  Volunteers are provided a variety of ongoing supports including regular educational workshops and an extensive collection of specialized resources for use with their students.
For information about volunteering: or call Lori Lievore, Programs Manager at 650-396-2049
