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,

Spring has sprung! The flowers are blooming, the grass is growing, and spring sports are underway for many of our TES students. Spring also signals the beginning of our state-mandated assessment window. This year, our students will participate in the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBAC). This online test consists of two parts: a computer adapted piece and a performance task. This test will assess math and English Language Arts, while the Measures of Student Progress (MSP) will capture the growth of our fifth grade students in reaching their science learning standards.

I see the students of TES make tremendous growth in learning over the last seven months of school. These assessments are an opportunity to "show their know." Your child will be most successful in doing this when they have a good night's rest, a nutritious breakfast and lunch, and a positive attitude. Attendance is also critical. Please ensure your child is present for school during their scheduled testing session.

We welcome families into our school for spring conferences from March 31 until April 3. Your child's teacher will contact you if a conference is necessary. As always, you may contact the teacher if your would like a conference to discuss your child's academic progress.

Mark your calendars for several exciting upcoming events. TES is hosting an Usborne Book Fair during conference week. These are amazing books that will tantalize your child's reading interest. Also, on Friday, April 3, TES will showcase our students' talents in our annual talent show at 8:45 in the multi-purpose room. Finally, check out our amazing fifth grade science fair on Friday, April 24 from 1:00 to 2:40 p.m. and from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the multi-purpose room.

Sincerely,

David Ford
