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?

Last year over 400 children were assisted! Beginning Nov. 20th, tags with a child's gift request are located at Tumwater City Hall. Black Friday or Costco shopping? We can also use donations of any brand new toy (no need to grab a tag), gift wrap and tape. With over 1200 different toys requested, we are sure we can find any new toy the perfect home.
