Respect in our classrooms: 10th and 12th grade students working together in Spanish and  AP Environmental Science

Dear Families,

We've featured the core characteristics of responsibility and courage in past newsletters.  Today we highlight respect.  At Tahoma, we think beyond the conventional definition that respectfulness means being polite.  In an academic environment, we respect the ideas and contributions of others, and value a range of voices in our discussions and learning.  These values are what make our learning community so vibrant.   

If you haven’t already, please take 5-10 minutes to complete our short parent survey today. All participants will be entered into a raffle, where you'll have a chance of winning a $50 Amazon Gift Card!  Both parent and student feedback have been critical to improving our schools and building the amazing school community that we have today.  From creating Summit Solves and our new Habits, Culture, and Community course to improving parent communications and developing school events & activities, your feedback has been essential.
