Principal LeAnn Tuupo

Meet Principal LeAnn Tuupo

Hello, Sockeye families! One of the best parts about being a principal is greeting the students, families and staff each morning with an air high-five or another quick connection. It helps set a positive tone for all of us! A few fun facts about me: Two of my favorite children’s authors are Mo Willems and Kazu Kibiushi. I have never lived outside of a 15-mile radius from my childhood home. And, if I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, it would be taco salad!
