Administrative Staff
A Message From Mrs. Thenell

Dear Lion Families,

Welcome to the 2022-23 school year! At TJHS, we believe that there is nothing more important than giving your child the best education possible. School is a place for growing and learning, and our staff works hard to provide a meaningful learning environment for all students. We also believe in balance; school should be an enjoyable place for our staff and students. We celebrate achievements, value kind-spirited humor and competition, focus on effort, and recognize one another’s positive contributions to our school community.

Our goal this year is for our students to experience the joy of school through strong staff/student relationships, rigorous and relevant coursework, and access to activities that go beyond classroom walls. Each of our students is assigned to a Discovery classroom with a teacher they will connect with daily throughout the year. This adult will become your child's go-to for help navigating jr. high life. In addition to adult connections, we are preparing our students for a world beyond the classroom and beyond Tillamook. Our classes will challenge your child and give them the skills necessary to enter adulthood confidently.

We welcome family and community feedback and recognize that your support is vital to our success. If you are looking for ways to be an active part of the Lion family, please call the office for more information. We can be reached at (503) 842-7531.

All the best,

Mrs. Karen Thenell, Principal
