CHAMPS: Safe and Civil Schools, CHAMPS, is classified as Positive Behavior and Intervention Support (PBIS) and describes a set of strategies and procedures designed to improve behavioral success by employing non-punitive, proactive, systematic techniques. Tierra Linda has been designated a CHAMPS Demonstration School by the Ventura County Office of Education.
Tierra Linda Speech Program: All students in grades K-5 participate in classroom speech tournaments in the areas of poetry, storytelling, expository, or dual categories. Our Speech Team, made up of 4-6 students from every grade level, is selected to perform at the speech assembly. Students in 3rd Grade attend the Pleasant Valley Education Foundation Speech Tournament.
Junior Optimist Club: Sponsored by the Camarillo Noontime Optimist Club, our student leadership organization invites all students in 4th and 5th grade to work to better our school and community. There are 104 students in the club and four subgroups including Executive Officers, Community Outreach, Recycling, and Campus Beautification.
Life Lab Gardens: Each classroom on campus has the opportunity to participate in the Life Lab Gardens. Planter boxes are prepared by students with an emphasis on local crops, hands-on experiential learning, and environmental stewardship. The Life Lab Gardens are maintained by teachers, students, and parent volunteers.
Fitness Lab @ Recess: The Fitness Lab @ Recess program has been developed to integrate more physical activity, movement, and positive social skills during unstructured playtime. With financial support from our PTA, we have included more games, clear expectations, and a plan for sustainability.
Art Docents: The Art Docent Program is a parent run art program consisting of eight lessons per grade. It introduces students to a variety of art forms including watercolor, ceramics, oil pastel, still life and mosaic. These lessons allow students to explore their creativity while enjoying a guest teacher for the hour – Mom or Dad!
Amanda's Corner: Amanda's Corner, sponsored by the Amanda McPherson Foundation, is an after-school social group facilitated by Mrs. Taylor. Students have the opportunity to play games while making new friends and learning appropriate strategies for playing cooperatively with their peers.
