Each Semester, all students in Tumtum thru Tahoma are welcome to participate in PIZZA FRIDAY! Take a break from packing lunches each Friday and your child will eat pizza delivered to school. (Gluten-free options available).

The dates for the first half of the school year are as follows: Sept. 1,8,15,22,29, Oct. 6,13,20,27, Nov. 3,17, Dec. 1,8,15, Jan. 5,12,19,26

Please send a check for $70.00 per student per semester to the school office or drop one off with Melinda when school begins.  Please make checks payable to The Gardner School.



Each year, families are asked to contribute to the Gardner School community through volunteer hours. A Tumtum / Mazama family is asked to volunteer for at least 20 hours per school year, and a Kalama through Tahoma family is asked to volunteer at least 30 hours per school year.

Please fill out a Volunteer Opportunity form here to begin volunteering!

If you are new to volunteering at The Gardner School, please fill out a Consent for Background Check. (If you already had a background check last year at The Gardner School, you do not need to complete a form again this year.)
