TPS Families,

Welcome to Tatum Primary where your child's educational journey begins.  These are important formative years where students establish the love of learning andbecome life-long readers while obtaining critical problem solving skills crucial for success in the 21st century. TPS students will utilize technology integrated into the curriculum on a daily basis. Students will learn to think critically and collaborate with their peers. Parental involvement is also important. We will have numerous activities through out the school year involving our TPS families. Our staff is committed to providing a safe, nurturing learning environment. Learning begins as soon as your child enters the building. In addition to classroom instruction in reading, math, writing, science and social studies,

TPS students will be able to attend the following classes on a weekly rotation basis:

  • Art

  • Music

  • Career/College Readiness

  • Character Education/Bullying

  • Library

  • CHAMPS Discipline

Thank you for sharing your child with us each day.
