Puyallup Press: September 9, 2021

How exciting to have students back in our school buildings! Thank you for doing your part to make this happen in Puyallup Schools.


Puyallup’s tradition of excellence is centered on belonging. We all need to know we are seen and a valued part of the school community. This year as we reimagine excellence, we will focus on establishing relationships, creating a positive school culture, and making sure everyone learns in environments where they can ask questions and share experiences. Because at the end of the day, a student’s ability to learn and feel comfortable in a classroom setting directly correlates to how safe they feel. As we move out of the pandemic, supporting this academic mindset is a key component in our recovery to accelerate learning.



We’re glad you’re here. Welcome back!


In service and support,


Dr. John Polm
