"Start with the heart" during opening week

Start With The Heart
Posted on 09/02/2020

For the first time, all Tahoma schools are beginning the school year in remote learning. The many challenges associated with starting school this way prompted conversation among school planners that attention must be paid to the social-emotional well-being of students, along with support for academics. One way of accomplishing that during the opening week of school is what we're calling "Start With The Heart." Here is an explanation, as posted on the district's counseling web page:

This school year is like no other. All of us have endured so much more than anyone could have anticipated. Yet, here we are! We are strong, Tahoma! In order to start this year right, we are beginning with a “Start with the Heart” mindset from our superintendent, Mike Hanson. 

Start with the Heart is filtering throughout all staff, students, and families in Tahoma. Our goal this fall is to ensure that each student knows how much they are worth, that they are cared for through relationships, and that they know how to receive support if needed. 

As always, we are dedicated to excellent academics. However, the wellness of our students is critical, so that they are in a place to receive the learning that our teachers are working so hard to provide. 

We can do this! Tahoma Together, we can do virtually anything.
