Hello Silver Lake Families,
I'm your proud principal, Kelly Sutton. I'm a proud graduate from Renton High School, after living in Gary, Indiana until I was 16 years old. After high school, I majored in Elementary and Special Education at Western Washington University. I taught middle school English, 3rd-8th grade SPED, and last taught 2nd grade at Lakeland Elementary. I graduated from Central Washington University with my Master's degree in Administration.
Outside of schooling, I LOVE my family. My partner and I have two children over the course of 16 years being together. My son and daughter attend Silver Lake as well because I believe in and love being a part of the Silver Lake family. I am a Federal Way resident, and love that I live a hop, skip, and jump away from our building.
I am so excited to be YOUR principal. I am always willing to hear a scholar, family member, and staff member out so that our team can be responsive to everyone’s needs to the best of our ability and capacity.
We have great things in-store this year, grounding ourselves the theme, "I'm going to PUSH through!" We are ready to accelerate learning and support us all with high expectations.
Thank you for trusting us with your scholar(s) and your partnership as we have the two main goals this year of “Sense of Belonging” and Rigorous Instruction. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions.
