Welcome to the Tuckahoe Elementary School PTA Website!

Welcome to the Tuckahoe Elementary School PTA website. This site has been created with our families and teachers in mind as a place to keep information about PTA activities, school activities, and let you know about resources around the broader APS community. 

Welcome to in-person school for the 2021-2022 school year!

This week 10/18-10/22 is Bully Prevention & Spirit Week! Check out the details.

 

Please consider joining the Tuckahoe PTA!  Our goal is 100% participation.  Being an active member ensures that you are involved in volunteer and fundraising activities and that you are "in the know" on what's happening at our school!  To join, click here!


Read our recent PTA newsletter issued Sunday, October 24th to stay up-to-date!

  

Mark this fall’s PTA meetings on your calendar! They are scheduled for November 15th and December 14th on your calendar! All meetings start at 7:00pm.  We are still determining whether to hold PTA meetings in-person or virtually.  Let us know your preference here.

 

The 2020-2021 school year will challenge students, teachers, and parents in unprecedented ways. The PTA Executive Board looks forward to working with Tuckahoe families and school staff to support and sustain the Tuckahoe community in the coming year. Read the PTA Welcome Letter for the 2020-2021 school year.

As always, please check out our various 
information sources for Tuckahoe and Arlington Public Schools (APS) news, as well as ways we can help our fellow community members across Arlington. 


New to Tuckahoe

If you are new to the Tuckahoe community, please consult our New Family Guide
 or reach out to us for support.

Accessing Class Lists

If you are looking for a class list and contact information for other students in your students' class, you can consult our online directory. To see the online directory, please renew or become a member of the PTA. In 2018, Virginia passed a law prohibiting the ability of schools to share any information about students unless they express opt-in to share yearly. You can opt-in via APS ParentVue, but the quickest way to bring the online directory up-to-date is by updating your information on the PTA website and/or renewing/joining the PTA. See instructions or contact the PTA Co-Secretaries for assistance.

We hope all of our school staff, families and community members are staying safe and healthy throughout this unprecedented time.


 



The gardens have been abuzz with helping hands! A big thank you to all of these volunteers for their time and enthusiasm! See the latest!



The APS Draft Calendars for the 2022-23 School Year are now available, along with a survey seeking community input, which will be open through Fri, Oct. 29. The current plan is to have the final calendar proposal go to the School Board as an information item in early November, and for approval at the December 16 meeting. Take the survey and view details here.





Tuckahoe PTA is excited to announce that Odyssey of the Mind is back for 2021-2022! Read more about OM.

In order for us to fully support that program, we are in need of team coaches as well as a list of interested students. At this time, we have a coach for one team of 3rd-5th graders.

You can complete the interest indicator to have your student on a team and/or to coach.

Since this is the first time in a while Tuckahoe is participating in Odyssey of the Mind, we ask for your patience as the coordinators and coaches learn the program right along side the students. Email the PTA President with any questions. president@tuckahoepta.us
