Tahoe Elementary, in partnership with our families and community, will provide an environment where students and staff become lifelong learners and moral, ethical, compassionate people reaching their full potential. At Tahoe, we understand that there are four components that are paramount to building a school where students reach their full potential.
The SHINE mission encapsulates those four areas and was created by staff as we worked to develop goals for our “ideal” school. Our mission brings together the major areas that we address in order to build an effective school and provide the lens for our vision: a Safe and caring environment; Home/school connections; Instruction that meets student needs and results in academic achievement; and Neighborhood/community involvement where Everyone wins. At Tahoe, we SHINE!
Full Day Kindergarten Orientation will be on Thursday, August 27, from 4 – 5 p.m.

SCUSD is expanding its successful Early Kinder program to Tahoe and John Sloat elementary schools this fall.
Early Kinder is for students who will turn 5 years of age between September 2 and December 2. The program is designed to give these children an extra year of learning before they start traditional kindergarten.
“We consider Early Kinder a gift of time,” says John Conway, coordinator of the Early Kinder programs. “Kindergarten can be challenging for students who are not truly prepared for the rigors and routines.”
The Summer Food Service Program is free to all children 18 years of age or under, and persons over 18 who participate in a public or nonprofit private school program established for the mentally or physically handicapped.
The program runs from June 27th - July 28th.
Please check flyer for specific days and times that breakfast and lunch are served for each site.
Meal times are subject to change. Please call (916) 433-5325 to confirm any of these sites.

Editor’s note: Great schools begin with great people, and Sacramento City Unified has no shortage of talented educators leading our campuses.

The Tahoe Colonial Collaborative Community Center at Tahoe Elementary School held a Spring Bike Rodeo on April 21. Kids toured a mini “Safety City” on bikes and scooters and were taught how to stay safe while riding. Kids who brought their helmets were treated to a free helmet fitting and received a free bike bell. Helmets were also distributed to kids in need. In all, the center gave out 62 bike bells and fitted 27 children and adults with new helmets.
Early Kinder (also called Transitional Kindergarten) is the first year of a two-year kindergarten experience for children whose 5th birthday is on September 2nd through and including December 2nd. (Refer to registration page for more information.)
Elementary, middle, and high school students are assigned to a designated neighborhood school based on where the student lives, as long as the school offers the services the student needs. Each neighborhood school has a defined geographic boundary and is intended to serve the students who live within that geographic boundary.
Go to our Attendance Area page for more information about school boundaries, attendance maps and our neighborhood school locator.
