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 Tenino Middle School Community, 

As new principal at Tenino Middle School, it is with great excitement that I welcome you to the 2016-17 school year! The custodial and maintenance staff has been extremely busy this summer working on projects to improve the look and safety of our building. In fact, they are still working to make sure the office is ready to open for business on August 23.  

If you need to connect with us stop on by, if you don’t mind the dust, or call my personal line at 264-3611. You can also reach me via e-mail.

A few key dates to keep in mind:
Fall Sports Meeting – August 15 – 6:00 p.m. – High School Commons
Office Opens – August 23
Class Schedules Available (Skyward) – August 31
TMS Open House – August 31 – 5:30-7:00 p.m.
All Fall Sports Practices Begin – August 29

I am extremely excited and honored to be a part of the TMS Family. As you may know, I have served as high school assistant principal for the past two school years. I have seen first hand the pride and commitment of the citizens of Tenino routinely show for our schools. I look forward to working with you, to ensure that TMS is a school we can all be proud of!

Proudly a Knight!
