Elementary principal announces retirement
March 4, 2014
Sunset Elementary School Principal Wayne Hamasaki will retire from his position at the end of the school year.
Hamasaki has been Sunset’s principal for 11 years, and has worked in public education for the past 28 years.
Before coming to Sunset, he served as principal at two other schools: Apollo Elementary in the Issaquah district, and Cascade View Elementary in the Tukwila district.
“Today, I am filled with admiration for what we have established and accomplished: a school filled with joyful children actively creating knowledge and meaning while preparing to meet the challenges of life,” Hamasaki wrote in a Feb. 27 email to Sunset families.
