Roosevelt has a new Principal
Superintendent Jones announced yesterday that HkwauaQuejol Hollins will be our next principal. Mr. Hollins -- who goes by Q -- was born and raised in Seattle. After college he spent eight years working in Virginia and the District of Columbia as a teacher and administrator. He returned to the Pacific Northwest in 2013, working in the Bellingham, Renton, and Tukwila School Districts.

The hiring team, made up of a diverse group of staff, students, and parents, recommended Mr. Hollins due to his student-centered and equity-focused approach to leadership. They also appreciated his focus on building relationships with students, families, and staff.

We welcome Principal Hollins to the RHS community.
