At the September 22, 2016 School Board meeting, Robert (Bob) Barclift, Tumwater School District's Board Vice President, the third longest-serving School Director in the history of Tumwater, announced that he will be resigning his position from Position 4, Tumwater School Board of Directors, to be effective October 1, 2016. Bob was first elected to the Board in 1993 and has been re-elected to continuously serve the District for the past 23 years. His commitment to Tumwater started long before his service on the School Board. Raised on a small farm in Tumwater, he left for college and military service. He returned to Tumwater and served as a classroom teacher, principal and then Board member. Superintendent John Bash added "The amazing history of service Bob leaves behind is something he can be very proud of and has been a generous gift to the Tumwater community. He will be missed."

The District has been notified that a group that is opposing Proposition #1, which will appear on the November ballot, plans to leaflet and/or picket the public on Friday night during our home varsity football games beginning September 16th. Proposition #1 would ban the sale and discharge of fireworks within city limits. The group has been informed that they may not come onto school property. They plan to have a presence on the public sidewalks in the vicinity of Tumwater High School. This is a political action group that is not affiliated with Tumwater School District.
