• Welcome Naches Trail Families,
    I have the honor of being your new Principal. A little about me...I grew up in Edmonds, WA, went to school in Pullman (WSU) and finished my Masters degree close by at PLU in Parkland. I have raised my own 3 children in Puyallup and I am now an empty nester and a first time Grandparent as of this summer!  I love to garden, soak up warm sunshine on a sandy beach, and garden in my yard. I also love my coffee each morning! And of course I love working with children and teachers!
     
    My school experience includes 32 years as an educator in the Sumner Bonney Lake School District. I have been an Elementary School Principal for over 20 years and I love this job!  I am very excited to meet your children and I have to say I am so very impressed already. They are smart, polite and kind. I look forward to enhancing the good work that your teachers do here every day. Truly a talented staff at Naches Trail!
     
    I believe that we need to work in partnership. I have high expectations for all of my students and I want them to excel in academics and social skills that are crucial to a good life as a citizen in our community. Please be involved and support your children and your child's teacher. It makes a world of difference! Let us know how we can help and support you as parents also. It is not always an easy job! As we move through the year, I hope that my Trail Blazer spirit and pride will shine through and that your students look forward to school each day. I look forward to a great year and I hope to meet you soon.
     
    Best, 
    Kay Gallo
