Rebecca Jelen Kent Librarian

Thank you to everyone who donated to our Project Night Night Drive!

It was a great success... here are the numbers:

  • 52 blankets
  • 44 stuffed animals
  • 90 books
  • $95!

Thank you so much for giving the gift of reading and comfort to a child in a Bay Area homeless shelter.

The winter break is a great time to listen to an audiobook with your family!

You can use the free Libby app if you have a Marin library card. Many of our students already have accounts after a visit from the librarians from Corte Madera. You can also gift someone a subscription to Audible for a monthly listening credit. Shared family listening makes car rides feel shorter!

Some of my favorite audiobooks of late include:

  • The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate Dicamillo (great for ages 7 and up)
  • Sadie by Courtney Summers (young adult for 8th grade and up)
  • Tight by Torrey Maldanado (ages 11 and up)
  • The Wild Robot and The Wild Robot Escapes by Peter Brown (ages 6 and up)

I hope your break is filled with books and relaxing holiday times with friends and family!

8th Grade Families

2020-2021 High School Registration Begins Soon

Most families choose to attend their school of residence. Please refer to your high school website for registration/enrollment information.

If you would like to enroll at Tamalpais, Redwood, or Drake High School and this is not your school of residence, please read the information posted on the District website for “Open Enrollment.”

As a first step in the registration process, incoming freshmen may apply now for an Open Enrollment transfer. Please see the application on the district website. The initial deadline for transfer requests is on January 17. After January 17, students will be contacted individually to confirm their school of choice. Once approved, students will be able to register directly with your school of choice.

“Open Enrollment” applies only to students who are TUHSD residents who wish to attend a district high school other than their school of residence. The January transfer request deadline allows entering ninth grade students to register at the group registration days at your school of choice. Although you may register at any time at your school of residence, the final deadline to request an Open Enrollment transfer is June 30 (or until the maximum of 50 spots per site are filled).

If you have read the information posted on the website and have a question, please email

Thank you,
Mary O’Leary
Executive Assistant to the Superintendent
Tamalpais Union High School District
