  • Healthy Youth Survey

    Our district is participating in the WA State 2016 Healthy Youth Survey during the weeks of October 10th - 21st. The Healthy Youth survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, access to school-based services, and sexual behaviors, abuse and orientation. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks. The Healthy Youth Survey is given to students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 across Washington State. Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students' answers are anonymous. All 8th grade students at Bush Middle School will be participating in the Healthy Youth Survey on Oct 18th.

  • 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.
