Anyone who has ever visited Tahoma National Cemetery over the Memorial Day weekend doesn’t soon forget the experience. Its beauty and serenity complement the proper honor and respect that is shown for the men and women who have served – and died – in defense of freedom.
This Thursday Tahoma freshmen will be at Tahoma National Cemetery assisting in its preparation for the weekend ceremonies. Tahoma students will be placing flags on close to 30,000 graves. This is the 10th year that TJH has been involved in supporting our veterans and their families in this way. We are commemorating and celebrating a decade of service to the community with our flag project. I invite you to check out the next edition of the “VOICE of the Valley” for their story on our students.
Across the United States over the upcoming Memorial Day weekend, citizens will be paying homage to Americans and members of our military who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Some will place flowers or flags on the final resting places of loved ones and heroes. Others will view a parade or gather with family and friends. We are privileged here in our community to be the caretakers of the sacred grounds of Tahoma National Cemetery. I encourage you to take the time over the weekend to drive through our state’s only national cemetery – it will be worth the visit.
Special thanks to teachers Cary Collins and Todd Baker who have provided the leadership for our activities at Tahoma National Cemetery. They are teaching our students the most valuable lesson of all – that Freedom Is Not Free.
All of the flags are purchased through donations. We are in need of your support for our Veterans and their families. Please consider a donation. Please make checks payable to Tahoma Junior High – Flag Fund.

Tahoma’s third annual Get Real Day is next Thursday, May 23rd. It is a Green Day, so students will not attend their traditional schedule. Rather, Sophomores and Juniors will attend three informative seminars relating to life after high school and post-secondary information. Students have pre-registered for the seminars they will be attending. Get Real Day is a half day. Sophomores and Juniors will be dismissed at 11:45am. Senior Oral Boards will begin at 1:00.
Be sure to check out the annual tradeshow May 28th 6-8pm! There will be over 170 booths giving away LOADS of free stuff. Your friends will be representing companies like Nike and promoting awesome products like the new 2013 Camaro, and some professional hydroplanes! Don’t miss this great chance to get free stuff and look at some cool companies!
Here are some pictures from last year’s tradeshow!

David Reichert’s 8th Congressional District – High School Art Show
Each spring, a nation-wide high school arts competition is sponsored by the Members of the U.S. House of Representatives. The Artistic Discovery Contest is an opportunity to recognize and encourage the artistic talent in the nation, as well as in our congressional district.
The picture seen here is the winning entry for 2013 entitled “Dive In” a photography piece by Mia Hell, a senior at Tahoma High School.
Tahoma has had the wonderful opportunity to win this prestigious award for 7 years straight.
