Our Mission and Motto:

At Tiogue School, we believe that students can achieve their personal best and become responsible and productive citizens by embracing all learning opportunities each day.

"Everybody is somebody at Tiogue"

I am happy to report that we had another successful attendance month in November. We again reached the 65% mark for students that did not miss a day of school. We all know how difficult it is to not miss a day, especially during this time of the year when everyone around us is sick.

We are partnering with Alex Smith from Horace Mann, to offer qualifying students a chance to win our Trimester Raffle for perfect attendance. As you probably remember, when a child has a month of perfect attendance, they will automatically be entered into our Trimester raffle to win a Kindle Fire 7 w/Alexa.

Our first drawing will take place on Friday, January 4th, the week that we return from the winter break. Good luck to all of our Sept., Oct., Nov., and Dec. perfect attendance students!

Tiogue Elementary School


  • I encourage all parents to check heads weekly for lice. Lice are very common at the Elementary level. Please reach out to me if you treat our child for lice so I can check their heads, and send notices to classrooms if needed. A Presentation on Lice will be given at the December PTA Mtg.
  • I will be available this Monday 12/17/18 from 3 to 3:30pm before the PTA meeting to answer questions, and discuss current lice treatment protocols.
