The Small Steps of Success- The most significant celebration the end of every school year is graduation. This joyful, culminating event that jump starts a Tomah graduate's future is only possible due to small successes that happen every day, in every classroom, every school year. On our last teacher work day this year, we took time to acknowledge those small successes that happened throughout the 2013-14 school year. Each teacher was asked to share a story which demonstrated a student success in their classroom and I'd like to share a few of these with you... Click the "Read the Full Story" link for more.

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!
