Through the eyes of the principal....
Principal: Mr. David Turrill
Welcome to the Tonda Elementary School Web Site. We make every effort to maintain the site with the most current information available.
Tonda Elementary School is committed to the education of the whole child. We are dedicated to planning and guiding experiences that consider individual differences and lead to intended learning outcomes. I would like to take this opportunity to share a little bit of information about the terrific students, staff, and community members that make up our building. Tonda Elementary serves approximately 545 students in kindergarten through the fifth grade. We currently have four sessions of kindergarten, 3 first grade classrooms, 4 second grade classrooms, 3 third grade classrooms, 3 fourth grade classrooms, and 4 fifth grade classrooms. Our average class size is 25 students to one teacher.
In addition to the 22 certified classroom teachers that offer instruction in language arts, math, science, social studies, 17 professional support staff members provided special programs in the areas of special education, English Learners, media, music, art, and physical education. Our students are exposed to many enrichment opportunities that are aligned with the curriculum being taught in the classroom. Our staff creates lessons that address high level thinking skills but varies the complexity of the assignments based on the learner’s level of understanding.
Tonda students are fortunate to learn from an experienced staff that is open to new ideas and always looking for better ways to teach the district curriculum. The staff at Tonda creates a positive learning environment that will help to provide foundational skills for the development of responsible citizens and lifelong learning for all students.
We are very proud of the Tonda Elementary School Community. It is one that is child-centered and nurturing. We care deeply about our students, recognizing the many wonderful gifts they bring to us each day. Please feel free to contact us to learn more about the strengths of our school. We welcome your interest and conversations as we continue on our learning journey.
