Tumwater School District


Tumwater School District provides a safe, caring, and supportive learning environment for students.  Our academic focus is based on four questions:  What do we want each student to learn?  How will we know if each student is learning it?  How will we respond when a student is experiencing difficulty?  How will we respond if the student already knows it?

    We have teamed up again this year with the Thurston County Chamber and other local districts to offer this spring break activity for students and their families. Students visit local businesses with their parents, learn about how the business uses math and answer grade appropriate math questions. Instructions were sent home with all students grades K-8. They are also linked here. Remember to turn your form in to your teacher by April 21 to qualify for prizes. Have fun!
