The YMCA is coming to help you and your family with after school care. Starting with the 2013-2014 school year the YMCA will offer an after school program here at TES. We are excited to have them here. Preregistration is now open. This period is very important to determine if there is enough interest to get this wonderful service off the ground. The sooner the YMCA receives commitments the sooner we'll know if it can happen. If you'd like to have your child be a part of the YMCA after school program please let them know as soon as possible. The hours will be from school dismissal until 6:00 p.m. which means that even on a half day your child will be cared for by the YMCA until 6:00. If you'd like more information please contact the Peninsula YMCA staff at 804-333-4117 or via e-mail: Click Here.

Parents, guardians and students here is our testing schedule for the SOLs. We want you to get a good nights sleep and make sure you have a balanced breakfast. GOOD LUCK!
Internet Safety Program Evaluation
It's that time of year when we have to have our annual evaluation of the ECPS Acceptable Use Policy and the Internet Safety Program. There is a survey for students and one for parents. We would really appreciate your input.
Welcome to Tappahannock Elementary School
Tappahannock Elementary School is the only public elementary school in Essex County, Virginia. We are located right in the town of Tappahannock with the beautiful Rappahannock River a stone-throw away. We serve grades Pre-Kindergarten to 4th grade.
We believe all children can learn in a nurturing environment. The TES staff believes education is a shared responsibility between students, teachers, parents and the community. We especially push literacy as that affects all subjects. Please use our website to learn more about our school and community. We look forward to seeing you and your children in our school!
Believing that each child has the ability to learn and succeed, the faculty and staff of Tappahannock Elementary School is responsible for meeting the individual instructional needs. Basic skills, high academic standards, and a stimulating disciplined learning environment are required. We must provide a safe, caring, and inviting school climate which fosters healthy relationships among all. Through the cooperative efforts of staff, parents, and community, we are committed to providing a quality education which assists our students in becoming productive, self-sufficient citizens.
