Continuous Student Learning in a Caring, Engaging Environment

Continuous Student Learning in a Caring, Engaging Environment

Welcome

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?

  • Budget Survey - Please Participate

    In an effort to engage school district stakeholders in the 2017-18 budget planning process, we are again using a survey tool to gather input from parents, staff and the community. Respondents will choose between two important investments and a natural ranking emerges across 36 questions. An open-ended narrative question is also available. Respondents may also provide feedback via the narrative option at the end of the survey. This tool will provide information that will be taken into consideration in the budget planning process which may include budget enhancements or reductions depending on available resources. CLICK HERE to access information about the survey and link to the survey. We will be taking input through April. Thank you for your time!

  • THS Dance Team Wins Trifecta at State Championship!

    Congratulations to the Tumwater High School Dance Team and Coach Kim Hill for your recent successes! March was a busy month for this group of dedicated team members. In early March, they traveled to Orlando to compete in the Contest of Champions Nationals competition against top high school dance and cheer programs from across the nation. They saw great success there - placing in the top four in four divisions. Upon returning to Tumwater, they were then faced with the State Dance/Drill Championships held in Yakima on March 25th. They took top honors in dance, hip hop and pom! Not only that, but they scored 298.7 in dance, 298.6 in pom and 288 in hip hop out of a possible 300.
