Principal’s Message

Principal Thoughts  – June 2017
Where has the school year gone ?  Just 10 short months ago kindergarteners were walking in the building for their first year of public school.  At this same time, many of our 8th graders were entering their 9th year at Tumalo and just starting to think about high school.  8th graders are now about to start a new and exciting chapter in their lives at high school, and kindergarteners will be ready for 1st grade in the fall.

This was a year that will stick in my memory banks as we dug and dug out of the snow to get ready for school only to be followed with concerns about the snow load on our roof!  I want to personally thank all of you for your patience and understanding as we worked to keep all of our students and staff safe.  Through all the interruptions, our teachers and staff were ready and prepared to provide high quality instruction to our students.  I firmly believe all of our students will be ready to take on their next grade level when summers rolls back into fall.

It is my goal to promote and provide a wide range of educational opportunities to our students that fall outside of the four walls of the classroom.  Tumalo will continue that tradition with our upcoming year.

Have a great summer !!
