This year, Tangent Elementary has had many new faces in the building. One in particular is Mr. Jim Haggart from our district office. We have had the privilege of his amazing support everywhere in our building from the front office, to the cafeteria, and throughout the classrooms. Today, he was recognized during our morning assembly by the staff and students with a Tangent Stars t-shirt and tie, as a special thank you for his ongoing support of our school. It gives us great pleasure to recognize him as part of our Tangent family and we truly appreciate his presence!
Tangent students sought pledges and swam laps at the Albany Community Pool to raise money for a grant to support educators and programs. The iSwim event is one of three main fundraisers for the Albany Public Schools Foundation. These students were recognized today during morning assembly. Half of the funds they raised will go back to our school, and half will support the annual classroom grant program. Hooray to our Tangent Stars for helping our school to shine!
Incoming kindergarten students are invited to visit their schools on May 2 during orientation day.
Each of the 12 elementary schools will hold “Get acquainted” sessions to share information about kindergarten for new students and their families.
Check the schedule for the orientation time at each school.

Updates are posted by grade. This photo is from the fourth-grade page:
“The fourth grade has been studying Native Americans since January. We discovered that after the Native Americans have worked hard, they celebrate! This celebration is usually done with some sort of mask. We are celebrating the culmination of this unit by making Native American masks!”
Enrollment in the District is projected to increase by about 500 students in the next five years. Ballot Measure 22-165 would fund new or renovated classrooms at all grade levels.
A new elementary school is proposed near Timber Ridge, and new classrooms and a major renovation is proposed for Oak Grove Elementary School.
