Kyle Fletcher Named Sunrise Elementary Principal



After a rigorous interview process that included a thorough application process, oral and written interviews in front of a large interview team, staff and community meetings and a final interview with Superintendent Mike Nelson and Director of Human Relations Stevi Berryhill, Kyle Fletcher, current Assistant Principal at Chehalis Middle School has been named Sunrise Elementary Principal. His official start date will be July 1, 2014.

Kyle comes to Sunrise Elementary after a successful teaching experience in which he was known for his engaging and innovative teaching strategies. Five years ago, he moved into his current role of Assistant Principal of Chehalis Middle School. In the last three years, Kyle has had extensive training and implementation of the Five Dimensions of Teaching and Learning Framework and Professional Learning Communities, which are both a perfect match for the continuation of good work at Sunrise Elementary.

During reference calls, one common remark was, “You can’t have him! I know he will be an amazing principal, but we want him to remain in Chehalis.” Individuals shared that Kyle is well respected as a teacher, administrator and human being in Chehalis and that the Enumclaw School District would be fortunate to have him as a new administrator.

Kyle and his wife Tara and their children plan to move to the Enumclaw/Black Diamond area to become an active part of our community.
