Principal Haines

  • Welcome Bulldog Families

    It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the Principal of Mill Creek Middle School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead this school with such a rich tradition of diversity and educational opportunities!

    I have been dedicated to the field of education for more than twenty-four years now, and I have worked with a variety of students ranging from grades 4-12. My most recent administrative experience was at Kent-Meridian High School (with which we feed) as an assistant principal for three years, and three years as assistant principal at Sacajawea Middle School in Federal Way. I am excited and eager to bring my experiences and educational diversity to Mill Creek Middle School and work with you as a partner in education to ensure your child's success.

    Along with the teachers and staff, we promise to work hard to continue the legacy of whole-child success established by building strong relationships with parents, students, and community partners. We will focus on character, equity, social and emotional learning, and healthy brain development. Additionally, we will use data to drive instruction, and to provide consistent implementation of the curriculum in a rigorous and engaging manner so that we can continue to increase student achievement for each student. All of us at Mill Creek Middle School are ready and excited to begin what promises to be the best year ever!

    This year is going to be amazing as we continue to provide academic experiences for our students that are rigorous, relevant, and help them build relationships while making real-world connections. As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors-teachers, students, parents, and community members are excited to be here as a Bulldog! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment.

    My door is always open and I welcome your input. Please feel free to call or email me to discuss any concerns you might have throughout the school year. I look forward to working with you as a team to help each student at Mill Creek meet their goals and have a successful school year!
