We LOVE our volunteers! Adults who volunteer in the classroom, chaperone field trips, help during field day, or work directly with students in any way (including PTSA after school events), are required to complete Tahoma’s background check and be cleared to volunteer. The background check process is done entirely on line (there is no longer a paper packet to fill out). If you have NOT completed an ELECTRONIC background check, please click here and complete it ASAP. Thank you!   

Calling all young scientists! It's time for the PTSA SCIENCE FAIR! All students are encouraged to participate by working on a science project at home, and displaying it proudly at the fair for the world to see the evening of May 17th, during the Celebration of Learning.

All scientists wishing to display a project at the fair must register in advance by completing the science fair ENTRY FORM and submitting it to the office.

Final registration deadline is April 27th - NO EXCEPTIONS!

WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) is a K-12 program that makes it easy for fathers (or father figures) to spend meaningful time with their children in a school setting. 

Volunteers are asked to spend at least one day (or 2 half-days) at Lake Wilderness Elementary supporting students and being a positive male role model through: Monitoring school property, helping with bus duty and greeting students as they arrive, working one-on-one or in small groups, reading, assisting with assignments, lunch, refereeing games, listening ears, and other student related needs. WATCH DOGS can volunteer any day they are available during the school year.

If you're interested in being a Watch DOG or getting more information, email Robert  to get connected or sign up for a shift HERE

All WATCH DOGS must be cleared by the Tahoma School District. Fill out your volunteer application here!
