Pathways to Excellence
Welcome Back Students and Staff!

Dear Students, Parents and Community Members: It is with great excitement that the faculty and staff of Tappahannock Elementary School anticipate the upcoming school year. Even though this will only be my second year as principal of TES, I can tell you that our building is full of the hardest working and most dedicated team members around. I am proud to be their leader. At Tappahannock Elementary School, we understand that knowledge is power. We strive to provide all of our students with the educational foundation to lead a successful life. Our work is further strengthened by support from families and the greater community. I would like to take the time to thank all of the local organizations, churches and individual families who have provided donations, services and time. Please contact the school if you would like to establish a partnership with TES. We have missed our students over the summer. We hope their summer was filled with valuable experiences and plenty of time for reading. As school begins, life can get busy. Remember to ask you child about their school day. Send them the message that education is important and that you are proud of their accomplishments, no matter how large or small they may be. Students listen to their parents and value their opinions, therefore you have the ability to support your child simply by sending the message that you care about their school experiences. Open House for Tappahannock Elementary School will be held on September 2, 2015 from 4:30 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. Open House provides students and their families the chance to meet with teachers and drop off school supplies. We can’t wait to see all of our returning students and new students on Open House Night.

Mrs. Branscomb's 1st Grade Students

1st Grade students in Mrs. Branscomb's class are studying Map Skills in Social Studies - Standards of Learning 1.5.  They made a map of Virginia out of Play Dough and Kayla is showing you what an excellent job she did! Check out the VA Maps in the 1st Grade section at TES.

Lifecycle of a Butterfly

2nd Grade students have been learning about butterflies in their classes. Science Standards of Learning 2.4 states that students will investigate and understand that animals undergo a series of orderly changes in their life cycles. The butterfly undergoes distinct stages and TES 2nd graders were able to observe all of these stages. Pictures above show them releasing their butterflies and it was a very joyous day for all of them!
