Principal Appreciation Month
October is Principal Appreciation Month
Posted on 10/05/2021

October is School Principal Appreciation Month and a time of year we honor and recognize all the hard work school leaders do to support staff, students, and families.  This administrative team comprised of 34 principals and 31 assistant principals give unwavering support with patience, compassion, and dedication.  Principals continually drive student achievement while maintaining a positive environment, managing school safety, creating family engagement, addressing a wide range of student needs, addressing transportation challenges, and more.

As we move out of the pandemic, their leadership is critical now more than ever before as we focus on recovery and learning is accelerated. 

Puyallup School District is grateful for the dedication and commitment of this team.  Thank your favorite principal today!
