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.
Please come and meet the Kindergarten teacher, Ms. Schoff, learn about what to expect and have an opportunity to ask questions. If you haven’t yet enrolled in Tahoe’s full day Kindergarten, we still have space so hurry over to the Enrollment Center at the Serna Center, 5735 47th Avenue.
You’ll get an opportunity to speak with current parents, PTA members, meet the principal, visit a classroom and tour the grounds. We hope to see you! Please call the school directly at (916) 277-6360 for more information.
Editor’s note: Great schools begin with great people, and Sacramento City Unified has no shortage of talented educators leading our campuses. The eConnection will be profiling principals new to their campuses this year to help our community get to know our administrative team. Today we chat with Aprille Shafto and Eracleo Guevara.

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.
Tahoe Elementary hosted its first Lunch on the Lawn event at lunchtime on October 27. Parents, students, teachers and staff soaked up some sun while enjoying picnic-style sack lunches from prepared by cafeteria staff. Students sat with teachers, friends and family on blankets stretched across the grass. After lunch, families were encouraged to play games with their children on the playground. The event was a success with more than 100 family members in attendance. The fun in the sun will continue with a second event in spring.
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.
