A Message from our Principal

Hello Tenino Families,

Mr. Harrington

It's May and things are really hopping here at Tenino Elementary. As you are aware, we will begin state assessments soon. You will be receiving a testing schedule from your child's teacher. Please help our testing process by encouraging your student to do their best, get plenty of rest, and have a good breakfast on the day of their test. Please do your best to avoid scheduling doctor appointments or otherwise missing any of the testing days. Our teachers have worked diligently throughout the year designing engaging lessons and encouraging students to reach their full potential. Thank you in advance for your support as we help our wonderful students show what they know!

Please continue your support as we enter into the last few weeks of the school year by doing the following.

        Checking your child's black pack for notices, homework, or announcements.
        Checking our website for upcoming events.
        Staying in contact with your child's teacher by calling or e-mailing as needed.
        Joining our PTA.
        Encouraging your child to read for 20 minutes each day.
        Encouraging your child to practice math facts at home or while running errands.

    We are the Tenino Tigers! We are safe, responsible, and respectful in everything we do! I am proud to be your principal. Thank you for your support! Go, Tigers! 

    Mr. Harrington
