Dr. Patti Folino, Principal

Welcome to Tuttle Elementary, home of the Tuttle Turtles. As the principal of Tuttle Elementary, I am privileged to work with our talented teachers and dedicated staff to deliver a quality education for all Tuttle students while instilling in them a love for learning. Our school’s mission is to offer a safe learning environment that enables children to grow in their education and become responsible, well-prepared citizens of the future.

Family and community involvement are key to a successful school. We welcome our family and community members to support our school through avenues such as business partnership, volunteerism, or serving on our School Advisory Committee.

There will be many events planned for the upcoming school year. We encourage our families and community to become involved.

As you peruse our website, please notice the focus on learning and the family-like atmosphere we are known for. It’s great to be a Tuttle Turtle!
