To Our Community Members,
In the past few weeks we have had the
opportunity to honor a number of very important groups in our district.
This week we recognize our Administrative Professionals and our
Volunteers, and in the very near future our Certificated Instructional
On behalf of the Board of Directors, and
on a very personal note, I would like to take this opportunity to
express how much the work of all of our staff members is appreciated.
This past weekend at the Honoring Cultures Diversity Celebration and the
STEM Showcase at the Spring Fair, we received dozens of positive
comments about the work of the staff and the district on behalf of
children. On each occasion it was such a pleasure to point out to
members of our community that our staff does a superior job of serving
our students and community in every way.
As the saying goes, "it takes a
village..." In Puyallup we are exceptionally fortunate to have a team
of people, in every role imaginable, who deeply value the opportunity to
serve children and prepare them for their future.
Thank you to all staff members for your
service. Thank you to part-time and substitute staff who make such
valuable contributions every day. Thank you, as well, to the thousands
of volunteers who support the learning and growth of all students in the
Puyallup School District.
Puyallup is a great place to be! Thanks to everyone who works so diligently to make a difference each day for "each child."
Have a great week!
Dr. Timothy S. Yeomans
