Principal Message

  • Greetings Prairie Families, 

    I extend a warm welcome to our new and returning families for the 2023-2024 school year. I am honored to serve as the principal of Yelm Prairie Elementary. 

    As I enter my 13th year of leadership, I understand the importance and embrace all opportunities to work together with educators, students, and families. Working together, we can collectively ensure that every student is successful and receives the best education we can offer. We believe that every student can achieve, and we commit to working toward that goal with a clear focus.  

    Prairie Elementary is such a special place to learn and grow. We are proud of our beautiful school and highly skilled staff that have high expectations of every student. Our students are kind, compassionate,  and eager to learn. Together, we strive to make connections to ensure everyone feels valued, accepted,  and safe while providing high-quality instruction in every classroom. Our overarching goal is to encourage active student engagement and to foster a lifelong passion for learning, lighting the path for every child K-12, college, and career. 

    In partnership, 

    Tami Beach
