Proud Home of the Knights

Welcome to Tenino Middle School, home of the Knights. We are a 6th-8th grade school located in Tenino, Washington, a 102-year-old historic town. Our school has great community support. Parent volunteers have helped this school tremendously. We firmly believe that students excel when they know we care about them. Be assured that our teachers and staff care deeply about giving your child the best possible education. 

We’re glad you came to visit Tenino Middle School’s online home. We hope you’ll continue to stay familiar with our school. You’ll find that we update calendar dates and news items regularly for your convenience. We have also made the Student Handbook available for you to download. We welcome all calls for additional questions you may have!

Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians, and Students,

On Tuesday, November 24, we will be deploying the first round of district Chromebooks for home and school use. For those of you who were unable to attend previous parent orientation meetings, the district is hosting an additional orientation on Thursday, December 3 at 6-6:30 p.m. in the Tenino High School Commons. 

As we approach the coming holiday season, we have much to be thankful for! Personally, I want to thank the many parents who support our music and athletic programs through their attendance at these events. I would also like to thank those who voted for the levy that enabled our latest school building improvements and technology upgrades. Tenino children are fortunate to live in a caring community and to have access to state of the art technology for learning. Thank you parents and community members!

TMS is always looking for ways that volunteers may assist at our school. If interested, please complete a volunteer form (available on the district website) and return it to the school office. A new form must be completed each year.

We invite you to read this month's Principal Message in full. Please check our website or contact the office if you have any questions.
