Study Trips: UC Santa Cruz, UCLA, UC Berkeley, and Lake Tahoe

On behalf of Tahoma's students, we extend a hearty thanks to the families who made our study trips possible.  You completed a TB assessment and security clearance, you drove, you stayed in hotel rooms, you made donations, and you inspired our students to think of the world around them and their futures.  These trips, which are so important to our college readiness mission, could not have happened without you.  We'll need to gather parent drivers again for our camping trip August 17-18.  This is an especially enjoyable trip for parents.  We hope you'll join us!  If you need to get processed as a parent driver, please email Ms. Lupe.

This Friday we celebrate "National College Signing Day".  Our seniors will announce the colleges they intend to attend, and our 9th-11th graders will gather to applaud their accomplishments.  We're so proud of them!

Next Monday students begin AP exams (Advanced Placement) with AP Environmental Science.   These exams provide our students with college level academic rigor and the opportunity to earn college credit while in high school.  We require all 11th and 12th graders to take AP exams.  Our 11th grade students will also take California's state tests in English and math (CAASPP/SBAC).  The SBAC is an important marker of student progress and our school's success, and passing the SBAC allows students to test out of remedial courses their first year in college.  We encourage families to ensure students sleep well the night before their tests and eat a healthy breakfast.   Our testing schedule is on our Google calendar.
