Mascot: Tullar Tigers School Colors: Navy Blue and White
Location & History: Tullar Elementary has been the same site for more than 130 years. The most recent building was built in the 1950s with an addition in 1969. Once the Town of Neenah School, the school is named after the farmer who donated the land for the school. Tullar now sits within the city of Neenah, but not long ago it was surrounded by cow pastures. The staff at Tullar Elementary is a healthy blend of veteran staff and new hires.

Distinctive Academic Programs: Tullar Kids Care is a school-wide citizenship and life skills program. It stresses the need for children to be a positive part of the larger community. In addition to academic success, our students are informed about their community and understand the impact they have upon our society as a whole. Monthly projects have included collecting cans for the Salvation Army, Boxtops for Education, and fundraising to adopt needy families over the holidays.
Parental Involvement: The Tullar parent organization is organized as a PTO (Parent Teacher Organization). The group meets monthly and lends its support to cultural arts events, enriching family activities and funding for field trips. The PTO has supported an artist-in-residence program for several years that has introduced publishing, mask making, watercolor painting and song writing to the students. During 2008-09, Tullar focused on the abilities of everyone (and including those with disabilities). Various organizations spoke to our students, and Tullar students and faculty gained a new respect for our different abilities and talents. The PTO at Tullar is a dynamic group that is committed to the success of our school program, and supports our curriculum with enrichment programs. They also are strong supporters of education and our staff.
