    Dear Trailblazers and Families,

    Wow.  There are hardly words for the year we’ve had with these founding students of THE.  This first school year has gone by in a flash, and yet it feels like we accomplished 3 years worth of community building, school culture creating, and incredible learning.  We set out to create something special with this space, and our mission was accomplished.  This school has so much heart and soul, it’s bursting at the seams.  This is all because of these amazing kids and their equally amazing families.  We could not have done any of this without your support. 

    A few details as we wrap up the year:

    A New Tradition:

    Last Day School - Dismissal Parade

    At dismissal on Tuesday, the staff would love to send the kids off into summer as we cheer and clap for them. If you have a car or bike when you pick up your student(s), feel free to decorate them and join in the festivities!  

    For parents that pick up behind the school: Please make sure to loop through the front entrance of the school for a victory lap!  We’d love to cheer for your students.

    The Golden Acorn Award:

    The Golden Acorn Award is presented to a Tehaleh Heights Elementary School volunteer in recognition of their dedication and service to our school, students and community. A Golden Acorn Award is very special and is given for continued and dedicated service. Since the beginning of this program, more than 50,000 Golden Acorn Awards have been presented to volunteers throughout Washington State. For each award given, they will receive a pin and a special certificate from the Washington State PTA. Their name will also be added to the Golden Acorn plaque on display at Tehaleh Heights Elementary.

    Our Golden Acorn Award Winner for the 2018-2019 school year, is Carrie Tullock.  This selfless woman is the embodiment of truly humble, servant leadership.  Her heart can be felt in every corner of this school.  What an honor it has been for the THE staff, THE PTA, and the volunteer community to work side by side with this incredible leader and visionary.  Carrie, you are one in a million!  Thank you for everything you've done to help us all build the school of our dreams.


    On June 18th, we were able to bring Broadway to THE with our first ever stage performance of Cinderella The Musical, thanks to a generous grant from our PTA!  With a cast of over 60 students and a troop of set engineers, we had so many opportunities for kids to shine.  We’ll never forget the closing scene with each of them singing their hearts out to a standing room only crowd.  Thank you to all the families that made these rehearsals work into their busy schedules. Thank you to the volunteers who devoted so much of their heart and skill into the sets and costumes.  Thank you to Mrs. Frederick, Mrs. Nelson, Ms. Matthews, Mrs. Ottele, and Mrs. Andros for making this dream come to life for the kids!

    Lost and Found:

    Missing a sweatshirt??  We can almost guarantee that it’s in our Lost and Found area!  Our rack is runneth over with items just waiting to go back home.  Make sure to stop by and check for your belongings in the Launch Pad.

    Summer Lunch Program:

    If you or your family needs a little help over the summer, we have a lunch program that will provide food at no cost.  

    We wish all our Trailblazers a safe and carefree summer!  We can’t wait to see you next year!  And to our graduating 5th graders, don’t forget to stop in and see us.  We’re so proud to send you out into the world to SOAR with your very capable wings.  Once a Trailblazer, always a Trailblazer!
