• A Note From The Principal


    Welcome Tennie Russell Primary Families,


    Thank you for choosing our pre-kindergarten program for your child’s first school experience.  We believe this year is the most important for your child’s school success; thank you for giving your child the right start to school.  We're proud to be part of the Bentonville School District and work daily to create a high quality program, “Where Excellence Begins.”


    Our staff strives to grow and develop your child’s cognitive ability, social-emotional wellness and creativity.  Your child will be engaged in rigorous learning opportunities through purposeful play and exploration.


    As partners of our school you can support your child and his or her learning from home by reading with your student, playing games, talking to him or her about their school day and reminding them of our Tennie Russell PAWS Pledge:


    We will:

    Practice Kindness

    Ask for Help

    Work Hard

    Stay Safe


    I'm honored to serve our students, families, community partners and staff this school year.  Together we will make this an unbelievably successful first year of school for our students.


    Kindest regards,

    Lori Passmore, Principal
