New North Beach Junior/Senior High School Principal Announced

Dear North Beach Community,

Please join me in welcoming our new JH/HS Principal Ms. Cynthia Valdez!

Cynthia will take the helm at our secondary school immediately and join our leadership team of Wendy McCoy and Vernon Bruni and our outstanding teaching and classified colleagues.

Cynthia's B.A. and M. ED are both from Eastern Washington University as is her continuing principal's certificate. She has 26 years' experience in education and brings a wealth of teaching and leadership successes!

Cynthia is bilingual and bicultural and serves on the Dual Language Task Force supporting our Washington State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Chris Reykdal.

Cynthia has been recognized at the state and national level for her transformative leadership as a migrant educator and was honored as the National OCDE GLAD Trainer of the Year.

As your superintendent, I'm excited to welcome Cynthia and her 15-year old daughter, Natalie Valdez, to our district leadership team and know that she will support the transformation and success of both our JH/HS and the entire school district!

Please extend a warm North Beach welcome to Ms. Cynthia Valdez! Cynthia can be reached at or via cellular at 509-630-6150.

Andy Kelly
