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 we return from Thanksgiving break and approach winter break I would like to thank the students, families, and staff that has made out first trimester one to remember! Over the past few months many of our students have been engaged in many exciting new programs like robotics, art, and DECA for the first time at TMS. We are looking forward to trimester #2 and all of the new memories we can make.

Also, be sure to come and check out TMS athletics. Currently our Knights are competing in girls basketball and boys and girls wrestling. Be sure to come to a game soon. Their season ends in mid December. Our LEGO robotics team will make their debut on December 4 at Washington Middle School in Olympia, if you have a chance, drop in.

Important dates to remember:

  • December 2 - Trimester 1 ends and early release
  • December 16 - Winter break begins 
  • January 2 - Back to school

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact the TMS office.

Proudly a Knight!

John Neal
