Join The 2022-2023 TMS PTA BOARD!

Want to get more involved with what's going on in your student's education? Consider joining the Tillicum PTA Board for the 2023-2024 school year! Rumor has it, consolidating schools might be coming to the middle school level in the near future so let's be proactive and make sure that doesn't happen at TMS. Parent/Guardian involvement is what keeps our community going!

We have many parents moving up to HS next year and need to fill many positions. Unsure about committing to a board position? Don't worry, our current president, Paul Tsai, will still be involved as VP of Fundraising, our current treasurer, Alicia Wong, will just be focusing on the role of VP of Grants, our VP of Volunteers, Amy Thompson, will be continuing into next year and our current VP of Communications, Kaili Baker, will be co-chairing VP of Fundraising. Also, maybe consider co-chairing with a friend (not advised for the Treasurer position).

Any questions, email president@tillicumpta.org. Please spread the word... Thanks!

Reimagining Middle School

We have a very important invitation for next week. On Tuesday, March 14, 2023, our PTA will host the *RMS (Reimagining Middle Schools) Committee (The general meeting will begin at 6:00pm; the RMS session will begin at 6:30pm). The RMS Committee will host a listening campaign for parents/guardians to gather feedback and help refine prototypes for middle schools next school year. The RMS Committee will make recommendations to the BSD Executive Team in June.  If you can make it, we would love to have your input at this important meeting. I look forward to seeing you. Refreshments will be provided.

What is a prototype?

  • Prototypes are visual representations of ideas; they are props that help tell a story.‚Äč
  • A prototype is a way of making ideas tangible and testing them out. This allows us to gather feedback and improve them.
  • Our RMS prototypes are "scrappy" at this stage! This is intentional so that we can gather feedback that will be used to inform revisions. This is a dynamic, ongoing process.

*Please visit the Reimagining Middle School Steering Committee webpage for more information on the RMS Committee membership, project, timeline and process. Please contact RMS@bsd405.org for questions, comments, or suggestions.
