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!
Dear Parents, Students, and Community Members,
The 2012-13 school year is off to a positive start. We are appreciative of our strong parent and community support. TMS students are blessed to have you involved in their lives. We thank you for your continuing help. We appreciate all of the support our parents and community members have given us in the past, and we are looking forward to working with you this school year.
We have added a few super staff members to the TMS teaching team. Jackie Hall comes to us from Idaho with super recommendations from community members and administration. She will be teaching our seventh and eighth grade sciences classes. She has several years of experience teaching science at both middle school and high school levels. Melinda Dozois is from the Gig Harbor School District and will be teaching PE and body conditioning. She has more energy than the pink energizer bunny! Nick Cook is our very talented “tech person” and will be teaching technology and computers at the Middle School. Bryan Hoddle comes to our school from the high school and brings several years of teaching and coaching experience. Mr. Hoddle joins our sixth grade teachers. Amy Battle will be leading our Special Education program. She is a first time teacher with ten years of experience in the medical field, coordinating doctors, nurses, and patients. She has great people skills and patience. Teaching seventh and eighth grade language arts will be Danielle Marshik, this is her first teaching position. Danielle has an infectious up-beat personality, and will bring even more life to TMS.
I have an open door policy. Please feel free to contact me at 264-3600 with any questions, comments, or concerns.
Gary Martin, Principal
