About the Provider

Description: Truckee Elementary School serves about 600 students in Transitional K-5th grades. Our staff, community and students work together to encourage responsibility, integrity and an enthusiasm for learning. Our primary mission is to provide a quality educational program to all students in a safe, caring and supportive environment.
Truckee Elementary became the district’s first “green” school starting in 2012 with the help of our PTO, the district, and the Shane McConkey Foundation as well as many community partners, including Sierra Watershed Education Partnerships.
Along with being the first TTUSD school site for composting, using reusable trays in the cafeterias, and testing energy-saving light bulbs and hand dryers, our Green Team students are continually brainstorming ways that we can reduce energy consumption and waste. Students actively participate in recycling, reusing, and composting. They see real results while learning about science, the environment, and becoming models of environmental stewardship for our schools, their families, and the community.
Our students also participate in many outside of school learning experiences, including fine art and music events, thanks to support from Measure A. Our active and strong PTO works hard to provide even more hands-on learning opportunities. Truckee Elementary students recently participated in the Tahoe Food Hub’s Grow Dome Harvest. Currently, Truckee’s PTO is fundraising with the goal of purchasing a Grow Dome near the school where students can plant, care for, and harvest their own food using their own compost from the school, further incorporating science and nutrition into their daily studies.
Parents play a very important role at Truckee Elementary through their active participation in the Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO), the School Site Council, English Learner Advisory Council (ELAC), and in our important parent volunteer program. Nearly 60% of our parents volunteer in the classroom, as tutors, sources of transportation for field study trips and extra hands helping students work on special projects and activities supporting our academic curriculum.
