Principal's Message

  • Principal Plenkovich  Dear Twin Lakes Families,


    It is with great excitement that I welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year. After 5 years in the Middle East, I am excited to return to the Federal Way School District where I previously worked at Wildwood Elementary and Saghalie Middle School. I am grateful to be surrounded by educators and district and school leaders who are equally passionate and committed to the mission of providing each scholar “a voice, a dream, and a bright future”.


    My highest priority as a school leader is working to create a school community where each child feels safe, empowered, and successful, staff are fully supported in their roles, and every person walking into our building feels valued.


    Since starting in July, I have been engaged with our custodial staff and district maintenance team to make some needed updates and safety improvements and freshen up spaces. I have enjoyed learning from and collaborating with staff and my wonderful Assistant Principal, Pam Pogson, to ensure we continue building on those things that make our school a great place for scholars, and develop a clear focus that will allow us to continue growing and improving as a learning community.


    Everything we do this year will be directly aligned to the Federal Way District Plan – specifically Goal 2 (Whole Child) and Goal 4 (Content Area Competence – Mastery of All Subjects). Our School Improvement Plan will reflect our top three priorities: Collaboration, Connection, and Culture of Learning – our “High C’s”. We are the Mariners – ready to sail into a great year!

    My commitment to you is to give my best every day and work to provide the educational experiences for your children that I want for my own. I look forward to listening, learning about your hopes, and uniting with you in our shared mission.

    Thank you for your trust and partnership. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like to stop by and chat. I look forward to meeting you soon.

    Warm regards,

    Anne Plenkovich
