Oct. 8th Maple Valley Rotary Virtual Silent and Live Auction: Stress and challenges have inundated us over the last 18 months, and as our kids move back to the classroom it’s crucial we not ignore the pandemic’s impact on their mental health. That’s why Maple Valley Rotary is dedicating its 2021 auction fund-a-need to help fund a Mental Health First Aid program for our youth.

Start with the heart
This school year is like no other. All of us have endured so much more than anyone could have anticipated. Yet, here we are! We are strong, Tahoma! In order to start this year right, we are beginning with a “Start with the Heart” mindset from our superintendent, Mike Hanson. Start with the Heart is filtering throughout all staff, students, and families in Tahoma. Our goal this fall is to ensure that each student knows how much they are worth, they are cared for through relationships, and how to receive support if needed. As always, we are dedicated to excellent academics. However, the wellness of our students is critical, so they are in a place to receive the learning that our teachers are working so hard to provide. We can do this! Tahoma Together, we can do virtually anything.
