Tahoma was honored to welcome the Secretary of Education last Thursday!  The visit is a tribute to the success of Summit Tahoma and the hard work of its students and faculty, and of the support from families.  After his visit he tweeted"Exciting work on personalized & project-based learning."  He also told us that the student culture at Tahoma is special - a place where students reach for their full potential.

In other great news, the Class of 2017 is on its way to college!  Ten seniors have already been accepted!  In January Tahoma will send midyear grade reports to colleges requesting them for our seniors.  This requires seniors to work hard over the next two weeks up to the end of our term on Friday, December 16.  Seniors want to make sure they are passing all classes, with no incomplete grades.

At the end of this week we will also mail home midyear grade reports for 9th-11th graders.  This should encourage our 9th and 11th graders to also work their hardest leading up to the last day of school on December 16 before winter vacation.  We encourage parents to log in and review your student's coursework for the year.  Click here for a guide to the PLP.

Our students have learned a lot this fall term - it's time to finish strong!
