Do you know a 10th grader?  They will be taking the Biology End-of-Course exam from May 31 – June 3 during their science class.  The Biology EOC is a graduation requirement.

If that 10th grader is anxious or just wants extra opportunities for help, they can go to http://swift.tahoma.wednet.edu/ths/eclub for some online resources, or see Mrs. Nance in Room 211 after school all this week!

Mia Corbin, Tahoma softball. Corbin smacked a three-run walk-off home run in the ninth inning to lift the Bears over Federal Way 8-5 in the West Central District tournament. A leadoff hitter who is normally known for her speed, Corbin went 4-for-5 at the plate to help Tahoma earn a state tournament berth.
