Welcome to the Tohatchi Elementary webpage. I hope you find the information here useful.  As we make improvements to the site continuously throughout the coming weeks I know it will become a valuable resource.

I am enjoying my work here at Tohatchi Elementary working to make this one the most outstanding schools in the nation.  This is my 12th year in education and my 10th year in Gallup McKinley County Schools.  Every year has brought new challenges and the staff and I are working hard to make TOE better day by day, week by week, year by year. 

"We will relentlessly chase perfection, knowing full well that we will not catch it, but in the process we will catch excellence.  I am not remotely interested in being good." - Vince Lombardi

Educationally Yours,

Dan Fruchey
TOE Principal
