Principal's Message

Mr. Steve Kuykendall (Mr. K) - Principal 
Welcome to Thomas Olaeta Elementary School! It is my privilege to serve you as the T.O. Principal.  Thomas Olaeta Elementary has been serving the Atwater community for over 50 years, educating tomorrows leaders today.
Providing a quality education to your child is our top priority, and to accomplish this, we need to work together in partnership.  There are several simple things that you can do to help support us, educate your T.O. Tiger:
  • Ensure they get a good nights sleep.
  • Have them at school on time every day, all day - PLEASE make every effort to schedule appointments for your child outside the school day.
  • READ, READ, READ! Read to your child daily and when they are readers ensure that they read every night, this love of reading will serve them for a lifetime.
If you have concerns, questions, suggestions or praises, please do not hesitate to call, email, or come in to talk with me.  We are in this together, and we need to work cooperatively, so that we do our best to serve your children, our students.
We are excited that you are part of the T.O. family, once a Tiger, always a Tiger.
