Taking advantage of the beautiful landscape and rich cultural history of the Tahoe-Truckee area, the entire high school spent a day diving into historical concepts related to our local region.

Every Friday afternoon, no matter rain, sleet, or snow, you will find our CommuniTEA gathered together outside.

Please join TAP in appreciating all of our amazing parents at TEA. And we would like to express our most sincere gratitude for all fo the work TAP does to keep out “CommuniTEA” thriving.
