Welcome

Welcome to Tenino Elementary School, the proud home of Tenino the Tiger! 

We are a community of third, fourth, and fifth grade students learning, growing, and mastering a host of skills in preparation for careers, continuing education, and success in life. Our staff and volunteers take pride in the excitement, rigor, and passion that we infuse into the learning process.

We continue to improve student success on the Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) and classroom-based assessments. Last spring we piloted the Smarter Balanced Assessment and we will be engaging that assessment this coming spring. There is a sustained effort to continue to explore academic interventions to address gaps in student learning. Vicki Agnew is our intervention specialist who will be leading this academic focus.

Organization of the school day supports an uninterrupted morning with specialists in the afternoon providing physical education and general music.

Please feel free to visit our Staff page to contact your child’s teacher or specialists or use the Contact Us page for our address or phone number. We look forward to hearing from you.


A Message from our Principal

Dear Parents, Families, and Community,

It is very important for our parents, guardians, families, and community members to familiarize themselves with the facts and information connected to our Capital Projects Levy. We appreciate that we have so many informed voters within the Tenino School District.

The area of emphasis on this levy includes improving student safety, addressing technology needs for our students, and improving the learning environment. All schools will receive a number of important modifications that will allow the schools to remain operational well into the future. As Superintendent Belmonte says, “The bones of the school structures are sound; we just need to invest in them.” Buildings will also receive renovations specific to each school’s needs. The superintendent will establish a local vendors list to support local businesses.

Levy information is available at each building and on the Tenino School District website. Citizens for Tenino Schools is leading this initiative to improve the schools for our community.

Student safety, health, and security are a constant concern for me, and will continue to be as we move into the future. Essential technology and appropriate learning environments are integral foundational components of how students are educated as they prepare for college careers.

The previous bond was for $38 million; this request is under $8 million.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at (360) 264-3720, Citizens for Tenino Schools, or the district office at (360) 246-3700 for answers.

Sincerely,

David Ford
