Superintendent School Bell

When I was visiting Warrens Elementary School, after one of the first snowfalls of the year, I saw a young student grab a handful of snow and begin munching on it. As an older student approached the little guy and told him not to eat snow, my first thought was of how much I enjoyed eating snow as a child. I also recalled my mother’s admonition not to eat yellow snow- white snow was fine. I don’t know if there is concern today of toxins in the snow from pollution or other environmental dangers, but I do know the first snowfall of the season continues to be special and I still have an urge to grab a handful of snow and enjoy (although I tend to resist this urge now as an adult). With the snowfall comes the building of snow forts, snowmen, and snow sculptures on many of our school playgrounds. This provides a great opportunity for our children to be active outdoors, burn off energy, and use their creativity. Of course, the snowfall also creates potential problems. We make lots of announcements to our students reminding them of the dangers in throwing snowballs and to be careful walking on icy/snowy sidewalks. Perhaps of greatest concern is our transportation of students to and from school during this time of year when roads can become treacherous and dangerous. The Tomah School District takes very seriously the responsibility to ensure students are safe at school and, of course, on the way to and from school. This is the time of year when we continually keep an eye on the weather and utilize a number of resources to assist us in making decisions about whether we start school late, cancel school, or dismiss classes early. Let me tell you a bit about this process. Click the "Read the Full Story" link to read more.

Tomah Area School District Report Cards 2013-14

The creation of school report cards and a district report card have provided the Tomah Area School District with the ability to shine a light on areas in which we are seeing improved student growth, as well as areas in which we see the need for focusing efforts to promote higher levels of student achievement. We are very happy to report that all of our schools are meeting expectations and four of our elementary schools are actually exceeding expectations.

Bullying Information and Resources

Dear Parents/Guardians: The issue of school safety is never far from the minds of teachers, support staff members, and administrators. We all understand how very important it is to create a school climate where all students feel welcome, valued, and safe. Perhaps the most prevalent problem impacting a positive school climate found in every school across the country is bullying. It is critical that students know where to turn and how to receive help if they are a victim of this inappropriate and hurtful behavior. The Tomah Area School District recognizes its responsibility to address bullying behavior in our schools, on the bus, and at school-sponsored events. As adults, we understand the importance of serving as positive role models for our students in demonstrating civility and courtesy. The most promising practice for responding to bullying is to focus on teaching all our students to be kind and considerate of one another. Being a person of character - an individual who strives to show compassion for others, who thinks about how his/her comments may affect another person, who is respectful, and caring- is emphasized day in and day out in our schools. Character education activities and anti-bullying messages are prevalent throughout all the Tomah Area School District schools. It is our hope that the resources found on this webpage will provide you with additional information or help. Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or building principal if you have concerns about bullying behavior. Working together, we can make a difference!
