  • Parent Survey Results
    As we reflect on first semester of the school year, we wanted to share with you our results from our 2016-17 Fall Parent Survey. Thank you to the 50% of parents who offered their feedback by completing our parent survey. We hope everyone will participate in our next survey in the spring, because the feedback we receive from our families as well as students and faculty help guide our plans and improvements for our school and community. 

    A few highlights from the survey include:
         -Providing our students and families a positive community and culture is a top priority for us , so we are excited that 93% of parents think that our culture is positive and supportive, 95% feel welcomed, and 92% trust our school.
         -We believe that parents are critical partners in supporting our students, so we are excited that 96% feel the same, and at least 92% of parents know and reinforce our academic and behavioral expectations.
         -Improving parent communication and support have been key goals of ours based on feedback from families, so we are excited that 90% of parents feel adequately communicated with and 88% are satisfied with the level of support from our school & faculty to help you support your student.
         -Among all aspects of our school, you identified our mentoring program, focus on Habits of Success, and small student body as the top three aspects of our school that continue to keep you with our school.

    While we are excited that 80% of families know how to interact with the PLP, we know we can better support parent usage of the PLP. There’s also a desire for us to create more ways for parents to connect with each other. We will be working on improving these areas next semester. 

    You can view the full results of Tahoma's parent survey here. As always, if you have any additional feedback, please do not hesitate to reach out.

    Mientras reflexionamos sobre el primer semestre de nuestro año escolar, queremos compartir con ustedes los resultados de nuestra Encuesta para padres de otoño 2016-2017. Agradecemos al 50% de los padres que ofrecieron sus comentarios al completar nuestra encuesta. Esperamos que todos participen en nuestra próxima encuesta en la primavera, ya que los comentarios que nos proporcionan las familias, los estudiantes y los maestros nos ayudan a guiar nuestros planes y mejoras para nuestra escuela y comunidad.

    Algunos aspectos destacados de nuestra encuesta incluyen:
         -Proporcionar a nuestros estudiantes y familias una comunidad y cultura positiva es nuestra prioridad, por lo que nos emociona que el 93 % de los padres piensan que nuestra cultura es positive y de apoyo, el 95 % se siente bienvenido y el 92 % confía en nuestra escuela.
         -Nosotros creemos que los padres son piezas fundamentales en el apoyo de nuestros estudiantes, por lo que estamos emocionados que el 96 % se sienta igual, y que al menos el 92 % de los padres conocen y refuerzan nuestras expectativas académicas y de comportamiento.
         -El mejoramiento de la comunicación y apoyo hacia los padres han sido nuestros objetivos clave con base en los comentarios de las familias, por lo que nos contenta que el 90 % de los padres se sientan comunicados adecuadamente y el 88 % esté satisfecho con el nivel de apoyo de nuestra escuela y facultad para ayudarles a apoyar a los estudiantes.
         -Entre todos los aspectos de nuestra escuela, ustedes identificaron nuestro programa de mentores, enfoque en los Hábitos del éxito y nuestro pequeño cuerpo estudiantil como los tres aspectos más importantes de nuestra escuela que los hacen seguir a nuestro lado.
         -Reconocemos que tenemos una oportunidad para mejorar el apoyo hacia los padres en el uso del PLP. El 20 % de nuestras familias no conocen cómo usarlo. En nosotros existe el deseo de crear más vías para que los padres se conecten entre sí. Estaremos trabajando para mejorar esta área el próximo semestre.
     
    Ustedes pueden ver todos los resultados de la encuesta para padres de Tahoma aquí. Como siempre, si ustedes tienen algún comentario adicional, no duden en contactarnos.

  • Happy Holidays!

    Award Winners: 9th Grade teachers congratulate student award winners for each course

    Dear Families,


    Today we celebrated the growth, accomplishments, and leadership of our students at our awards assembly.  We recognized outstanding work in each course along with students who exemplify our core characteristics.  We're proud of all of our students accomplishments this semester!

    While vacation is a time for fun, family, and rest, it's also an important time for students to continue making progress with their Personalized Learning Plan - completing projects, revising projects for which teachers have given feedback, or working through playlists in order to take content assessments when school resumes January 4.

    In the spirit of the holidays, we wish you light, peace, and joy!
