Tahoma Choir Students place in State Solo/Ensemble

May 3, 2017 Leave a comment

The state solo & ensemble contest was held in Ellensburg this weekend.  In a contest that began with thousands of entries at regional events across the state, we had three vocal entries that won the regional event and competed at the state contest.  All 3 received superior ratings at the state contest.  Allie Orozco & Sophia Heinz came in 1st in state with their duet, and Sophia Heinz won 3rd place in the Soprano category!  This is quite a feat.  This is such a highly competitive event that in my 21 years at THS we have only had state contest winners 4 or 5 times, and not more than a dozen or so place in the top 3.  Please congratulate these girls if you see them.

April 21, 2017 Leave a comment


Tahoma’s Robotics Team, Bear Metal, won the PNW Championship last week at EWU. The three-day event was full of challenging matches from the best in the PNW. Bear Metal captained the winning alliance and ended up setting the PNW high score for the year in their initial Finals match.

The team is at the Championship event in Houston later this week, hoping to make a great showing!

Tahoma High School State Testing

April 20, 2017 Leave a comment

Tahoma students are required to participate in Washington State’s Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) in both English Language Arts (ELA) and Math.


ELA testing took place in students’ 10th grade English 10 classes during the week of March 27-30. Makeup testing is taking place this week.


Math testing will take place on the morning of April 27th (8:15-11:45)

  • Sophomores: All will be taking a Smarter Balanced Assessment
  • Juniors who have not previously passed the SBA are required to take the SBA
  • Juniors who have previously passed the SBA will not be testing; they will have the opportunity to choose from a menu of meaningful Future Ready/Career and College lessons.
  • Seniors who have not previously passed the SBA are required to take the SBA
  • Seniors who have previously passed state math assessment will have late arrival (beginning at 12:15). This late arrival allows seniors the opportunity to prepare for their oral boards or meet with their AGGI teachers.

Attendance for Sophomores and Juniors is required both in the morning and afternoon. An abbreviated class schedule will begin at 12:15pm.
Attendance for Seniors is not required in the morning, but is required in the afternoon. An abbreviated class schedule will begin at 12:15pm.

Running Start & SBA Math
All Tahoma High School students are required to participate in Washington State’s Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA); this includes our Running Start students.
We recognize the challenge that Running Start students face in trying to balance their Running Start classes with Tahoma High School’s testing schedule. Therefore, we have selected a separate testing day specifically for our Running Start students. On April 21, GRCC has no scheduled classes, and this makes the 21st and ideal day for our Running Start students to participate in State Testing. Those students will receive further notification if it necessary for them to test on this day.

If you have questions, please contact Martin Barber (mbarber@tahomasd.us)
