December 12, 2021

We're excited to jump into our last week of school before winter break. Students and staff have worked hard since August and we know this time away from school with a focus on rest and family connection is well deserved. Please make every effort to support your student(s) in arriving to school on time all week. As a reminder, students should be in mentor rooms before 8:20am, teachers are prepared to support your student(s) and being on time matters. Your Partners, Red Team

Middle School Expansion

We are so excited to announce our planned expansion for middle school for fall 2022. We see this as a unique opportunity to further our reach in Tacoma and provide excellent education to our community. Through our continued research we understand that there is a growing need for choice in middle school options and that middle school success is foundational to success in life. We'll launch with 6th grades and grow to 6th-8th by fall 2024.

Do you know a family who will have a 6th or 9th grader in fall 2022? Please invite them to Virtual Open House on Tuesday, January 11th and share this link so they can sign up:

ACTION: As we plan our middle school expansion, we are actively collecting signatures to show community support.
