  • 6th Grade Transition to Middle School

    In 2011, the Tumwater School District assembled an advisory group to research and discuss the idea of moving 6th grade to the middle school level. After carefully reviewing a lot of information and research, and receiving input from parents and staff, the advisory group recommended a 6th-8th grade model for our middle schools. The Tumwater School Board approved the recommendation in 2012 and included the remodel of the middle schools on the 2014 bond request to the voters. In 2015, the design and planning of the new middle school additions began. Construction is currently on schedule and 6th grade will be served at Bush Middle School and Tumwater Middle School starting in September of 2017.

    On November 15, 2016, we held our first of three parent information nights. The next meetings will be held in February and March 2017 (details to be determined).

  • Update about our Planned Move of 6th Grades to the Middle Schools

    Tumwater School District plans for future facility needs based on the best available information. As these plans cover many years, sometimes circumstances change, causing us to revisit previous decisions. That is what is happening right now, with the move of our sixth grades to our middle school sites. Originally, we had planned construction of new wings at our middle schools for 2017-18, with 6th grade students starting in the fall, 2018. With State funding for all day kindergarten programs arriving sooner than expected, four of our six elementary schools are now at capacity. This has led us to explore moving the timeline up one full year. We have thoroughly explored this option and have found that it allows for the time needed for planning and construction. The School Board has reviewed and approved this new timeline. As part of the planning process, ongoing communication with students, staff and the community will be a priority.
