Principal's Message

Dear Renton Park Families ~

On behalf of the Renton Park Learning Community I am excited to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year!

As the incoming Principal, I am humbled by the opportunity to serve the Renton Park community. With nearly 20 years of experience in education, working in various capacities including classroom teacher, instructional coach, Dean of Students and Assistant Principal, I am excited to be a partner with you and the Renton Park team to ensure that every child feels welcome, celebrated, and nudged towards their next level of growth in order to reach their fullest potential.

Our theme this year is DIG, SEED, GROW. Here at Renton Park we are champions for ALL students, meeting them where they are and supporting their growth in all areas. To do this we will:

DIG into the important work of cultivating intentional relationships with students as well as explore culturally responsive teaching strategies to support our efforts in meeting the needs of ALL students in ALL areas.

SEED academic and social/emotional learning experiences that support ALL learners.

GROW caring and critical thinkers ready to make thoughtful contributions to our world.

We recognize that in order to be successful in school, support is needed from both home and school. Our partnership will be instrumental to the growth of your children. As partners we share in the responsibility for your child’s success and will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. As one of their biggest advocates, your support in ensuring they attend school daily, arrive on time and are ready for the day’s learning is greatly appreciated!

It is a privilege to be a part of the Renton Park community. Thank you for your support as we strive to ensure EVERY child, EVERY day, in EVERY classroom and environment is engaged in high quality learning experiences.

Growing together,

Pamela Washington

Principal: Renton Park Elementary
