Principal Chris Thomas
Over the last several months, our staff has been preparing for our journey together as "the new" Rock Creek Learning Community. During that time, I've had the privilege of getting to know our new group of staff members as well as PTO Presidents, Carmen Lucero and Jami Gallegos. What an amazing group of caring and dedicated adults!
In building the school community of our dreams, the staff at Rock Creek has been committed to three areas of focus that will guide our work; relationship, collaboration and student centered decisions. It is our hope that everyone in our community will see and hear this commitment on a daily basis and throughout our future together.
I am proud to share that I attended Tahoma schools K-12, graduating from Tahoma High School in 1988. After working 9 years as an administrator in the Bellevue School District, I returned to Tahoma as the Principal of Glacier Park Elementary in 2010. In August, my wife and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. We have two kids, a daughter who is a junior in high school and a son in 8th grade. Outside of school our family can most often be found playing and enjoying sporting events together.
I’m happy to know many of you already and look forward to getting to know the rest of you. I want to hear from you, so please feel free to contact me anytime.
It's great to be an Eagle!
