  • WEATHER MAKE-UP DAYS UPDATE

    Our waiver application is prepared and requires School Board approval which will be considered at the March 14th Board meeting. After evaluating the hours needed to make up the lost instructional time, we found that we can recoup the time solely from ACT Fridays. In anticipation of the waiver being approved, we are cancelling ACT early release for Friday March 15th and March 22nd while we wait for a decision from OSPI. If the waiver is approved, we will then cancel the remaining ACT days that are scheduled for the 2018-19 school year. As it stands, if the waiver is approved (and no more days are cancelled due to weather, power outages, etc.), the last day of school will be June 24th and will be a half-day early release for students. The district is working with our employee groups to identify appropriate ways to make up lost staff time. We will keep you updated when we receive the waiver decision.

  • LETTER TO GUARDIANS OF HEALTH / FITNESS STUDENTS

    Dear Parents & Guardians of Health/Fitness Students, We will be having a parent/guardian information night about our Sexual Health Education curriculum during conference week. In recognition of the significant threat that the HIV/AIDS virus presents to the health of the people of our nation, the Washington state legislature passed the Omnibus AIDS Bill in 1988. This law directs local school districts to provide yearly instruction to students in grades 5-12 about the pathology and prevention of the HIV/AIDS virus. A drop in session will be held between 6:30-7:30 P.M. on Thursday, March 28th in the Library at Bush Middle School to give parents & guardians an opportunity to preview the KNOW curriculum. Teacher and student instructional materials will be available for your review. The Fitness/Health department will also be present to answer any questions you may have. Parents/guardians who wish to have a student excused from participation in the KNOW curriculum may sign a “Request Form to Excuse Student” at least 7 days prior to the planned instruction. State law provides that a parent or guardian must attend such a meeting before they can have their child excused from participation in the HIV/AIDS prevention program. Excused students shall be provided with appropriate alternative educational opportunities. It is not necessary for parents/guardians to attend a public review session if they do not intend to exempt their children from KNOW instruction. The Washington State Omnibus AIDS law requires a parent/guardian to attend a public viewing session and review the materials before such an exemption may be requested or granted. For exact dates on when this instruction will take place between May and June please reach out to your students Fitness/Health Teacher as this will happen during classroom based learning in the Health classroom.

  • Who WAS George Washington Bush?

    George Washington Bush was one of the first settlers in the Washington Territory. He was well known for his generosity and helpfulness to others who struggled to make themselves a home and a life in the rugged Pacific Northwest. He was born in the late 1700's. During his young adult years, he served in the military. In 1844, he joined his friends to make the trek to settle near Puget Sound in the New Market area (present-day Tumwater). After petitioning the government, his family was granted 640 acres on which to settle. The Bush family farm became one of the most productive and valuable in early Washington. The Bushes gained a reputation for their hospitality and charity. Bush, along with Michael Simmons and others, built the first gristmill and sawmill on Puget Sound at Tumwater Falls. Because of his unique significance in the history of the Tumwater area, the Tumwater School District decided to recognize George Washington Bush's accomplishments by gracing this school with his name.
