Principal's Message

Photo of Principal Alicia Jensen

Hello Shaw Road Families,

We are putting the finishing touches on the building to be ready to welcome back all our Trailblazers for the 2022-2023 school year. I wanted to take a moment to let you know a bit about me, and some things we are getting ready for this school year.

I am thrilled to join the Shaw Road Elementary Team. This will be my 7th year as a building principal, but my first year in the Puyallup School District. I have been in education for 19 years, and I have had the pleasure of serving as a classroom teacher, special education teacher, coordinator, and principal. I have a passion for ensuring that we truly know all our students, and that we celebrate their natural talents and gifts while also ensuring that all students achieve at high levels.

I have lived in Puyallup for the last few years. I am a mom to three wonderful boys who all attend schools here in the Puyallup School District. My oldest will be an 8th grader, my middle son a 5th grader, and my youngest will be starting Kindergarten in the fall. They keep me busy, but grounded, and centered in ensuring that our school is doing the best it can for every student.

First day of school for our 1st-6th graders will be on Wednesday, September 7th, and our Kindergarteners will join us on Monday, September 12th. Be sure to activate your Parentsquare account as that will be how most communication will be coming out.

Enjoy the remaining days of summer!

Sincerely,

Alicia Jensen
