Principal's Letter

June 12, 2018

We are pleased to announce our new Associate Principal, Ms. Cynthia Burt!! 

 Dear Tesla STEM Community,

I am honored to have the opportunity to serve as your Associate Principal. Working as a teacher at Tesla STEM for the past six years has been hugely fulfilling and brought me much joy. Three years ago, I began pursuing my Masters in Education Leadership and my principal certificate, which I completed this last month. I am excited to serve Tesla STEM in this capacity for many years.

My husband and I live in Kirkland and have four children who attended Lake Washington schools. When I’m not working at school, I can often be found reading books, hiking, or taking photographs. I believe that all students should be empowered and transformed by education. I believe in the importance of parents as partners in education. I look forward to working for you and with you to ensure that every student is prepared to pursue their dreams.

Good afternoon Tesla STEM Families, 

 As you know, the Tesla STEM High School Graduation Ceremony for our Class of 2018 is scheduled for this coming Wednesday, June 13, 2018.  All staff members will be leaving Tesla STEM by no later than 1:00 to get to the grad venue and rehearse with our senior scholars, etc.  To this end, all students must be off campus by 12:45.  We will be closing/locking the building as we get ready to celebrate our great senior class and their well-earned graduation. Buses/shuttles will run at their regular times.  For all non-bus riders, please make certain you have a transportation plan that includes your pick up by 12:45 on Wednesday, June 13, 2018.

 Thank you for your attention to this.  We appreciate it!!
