Preparing for Memorial Day . . .

Today, ninth grade students from Tahoma Junior High placed about 30,000 flags on graves at Tahoma National Cemetery   This is the tenth year in a row that our students have shown their respect this way for those that have served our country.  You can learn more about the project in this interview of Principal Rob Morrow by KVI's John Carlson.

We need to thank the staff at the Junior High for supporting this annual event and especially teachers Cary Collins and Todd Baker for their leadership and commitment to the program and to Principal Morrow for his understanding of its importance and behind the scenes support.  The flags are purchased through donations. If you would like to support this program you can make out your check to Tahoma Junior High - Flag Fund.

What a great service project that our students provide to honor our heroes. My wife, daughter, and I were overwhelmed by the emotion that comes over you when you drive through. Thank you to Cary, Todd, and Rob for their efforts to provide this wonderful learning experience for students.
