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,

We experienced two new successes that came about due to the collaboration,
guidance, and participation of TES parents.

The Veterans Day Assembly brought new inspiring messages to our children from
local veterans and active duty personnel within our community, for which we are all grateful. It was a powerful assembly!

The PTA created our first annual Pie Judging Contest and TES community get
together. The evening was filled with Bingo, cup stacking, a crafts table, wall pictionary and family pictures. The pies were terrific and it was VERY difficult to determine a winner! The evening ended with a great cleanup effort. Thanks for a super evening!

I am committed to supporting the academic growth and well being of all of the
students at TES. As a function of this, I will be spending two and a half days every week in classrooms in order to help improve the teaching and learning that happens on a daily basis.

Therefore, I may not always be available to speak with you when you drop in or
telephone me. However, I really do value communicating with you. So, when you
want to speak with me, please contact Mrs. Penfield at the front desk, and she will schedule a time for us to talk.

Thank you for your ongoing support of our school and your patience and
understanding as I implement these practices.

Sincerely,

David Ford

David Ford, Principal
