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,

The role of a principal has changed across the state and across the nation. New aspects of the job place principals in the classroom and not in the office. We are monitoring instructional frameworks as teaching unfolds in real time and working directly with teachers to improve academic success for students. This has resulted in me gaining a consistent immersion and familiarity with what’s going on in the classrooms at TES.

One of my discoveries has been about how kids behave and learn in the classroom setting. The other take-away is a renewed awareness of how hard and long teachers work. Modern teachers have the world’s largest to-do list. To treat the “whole child,” teachers must be current on the best practices in all areas and deal with a myriad of student needs. The teacher’s daily ability to differentiate instruction is awesome and effective. Our scores are on the rise! All of this comes together like a symphony each day in the classroom. The professionals here at TES have a phenomenal work ethic. I see teacher cars here long into the evenings and on weekends. I am pleased that this effort, dedication, and commitment are in place. However, I must remind myself not to be too busy to take a moment to say thanks to all staff for their personal contributions on behalf of our students. As we enter Teacher Appreciation Week during the first week of May, join me in saying thanks for a job well done.

Sincerely,

David Ford
