                  8th Grade Parent Nights/                      Noche de Padres para 8vo Grado


    Dear Eighth Grade Parents and Friends:

    Terra Linda High School is pleased to announce that our annual fall Eighth Grade Parent Night has been scheduled for Monday, November 2nd 6:00 p.m. via Zoom. The faculty, staff, and parents are extremely proud of our programs and the many accomplishments of our students. The evening will provide an opportunity for our prospective parents to engage in a brief sample of the Terra Linda High School experience.

    This event will showcase our varied academic, extracurricular, and athletic offerings. The presentation will begin with images of our updated campus, followed by a brief overview of our curricular and co-curricular offerings by the Terra Linda High School Administration and our Counseling and Guidance Department. 

    Principal, Katy Dunlap will follow with a Q&A session about our campus and the experience students have at Terra Linda High. This is an opportunity for you, prospective TLHS families, to learn about our many amazing programs; including, but not limited to our 9th grade transition program, a nationally established college preparation program called AVID, the GAME Design ICT Pathway, and an integrated, project-based curricular program at our school known as the Marin School of Environmental Leadership (MSEL). 

    As students and their families move through their eighth grade year with their eye toward high school, we believe the evening of November 2nd will begin to provide clear direction and focus for the many choices students and their families will soon be making.  Looking ahead into spring, Registration Packets and Enrollment Materials will be accessible in early February through San Rafael City Schools Enrollment Office and online. We look forward to seeing you on the evening of Monday, November 2nd and promise a great night! Zoom links will be posted on the TL Website

    Administration Team

    Davidson Administration TeamThe Davidson Administrative Team consists of Assistant Principals Susan Akram and Mari Kernan, Dean of Students Tom Kordick, and Principal Bob Marcucci. Together, they have over 80 years of experience in education - as teachers, instructional coaches, and administrators.

    Bob Marcucci has been the proud principal at Davidson Middle School since 2014. He has been in the San Rafael City Schools District for 23 years as both a teacher and administrator. He began his career as a teacher at Coleman in 1997, then became the principal at Laurel Dell, Glenwood, and now DMS. Mr. Marcucci grew up in San Rafael and is a product of Sun Valley, Davidson and San Rafael High School. He graduated from Saint Mary’s College in 1995 and got his bilingual teaching credential there as well. He received his Master’s in Education Administration from San Francisco State University in 2005. Mr. Marcucci’s passion lies in creating a positive school climate and serving the needs of students and families.


    Over 300 people  came to our End of the School Year Celebration Potluck, where 45 ELD students received their Reclassification Certificates of Accomplishment. The food was divine. There was live marimba music from Guatemala. A laptop was raffled among the reclassified students and there was a piñata for the little ones.  The staff members, Jenette Erven and Maria de Luna, were recognized, as well as,  the members of the PTO and ELAC and, most of all,  the parents, teachers, students and collaborating organizations for their hard work every day. In short it was a night of gratitude!

    The criteria for the Honor Roll is:

    • NO D’s or F’s (quarter grades) and NO N’s or U’s in citizenship.
    • Principal’s Honor Roll = GPA of 4.0
    • Academic Honor Roll = GPA of 3.5-3.89


    Grade Point Average (GPA) is calculated by adding up the total value of the letter grades and dividing by the number of graded classes.

     The value of each letter grade is as follows:

    A = 4   B = 3   C = 2   D = 1   F = 0

    As an example, a student has a report card of

    A, A, B, C, B, C, D.

    The total would be 4+4+3+2+3+2+1 = 19.

    19 divided by 6 classes = 3.16 GPA.
