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,

On behalf of all staff and students at TES, and the hardworking PTA parents who invested extensive time and effort, we thank you for your attendance and outpouring of generosity at the art show and auction. We appreciated your attendance at this fabulous fundraiser to support our kid’s programs.

We are continuing to work on increasing student academic success and will be implementing a program called, “Stop! Drop! and Read!” The goal of the program is to emphasize the need for students to read daily and develop the habit of reading regularly.

Spring conferences will be here before we know it. Parents of students who have exceeded their learning targets and are currently at, or above, grade level can choose to forgo meeting with teachers for spring conferences. However, parents are welcome to contact teachers to discuss their child’s progress. Some parents elect to arrange for a ten-minute phone call. The conference is optional for parents of this group of students.

Teachers will contact parents of students who are working to meet their targets, but who are not quite there. We want to form a partnership with parents to provide reading and math support. We are committed to moving all students to a point above grade level. We believe that together we can make a difference!

The always successful and much anticipated Usborne Book Fair is operating in the library Tuesday through Thursday during the week of conferences. The more students read the more they will meet with success.

Finally, congratulations to the TES students who were successful in their presentation to the Tenino City Council. This presentation resulted in the formation of a sister-city relationship between Tenino and our sister-school at Tongor-Attokrokpo, in Ghana, Africa. Watch for the road sign this spring! 

Sincerely,

David Ford
