Message from the Superintendent
Welcome to the La Center School District and our webpage.
My name is Peter Rosenkranz and I am excited to be the Superintendent of the La Center School District. I have been in education since 1992, working in Kelso, Puyallup, Hockinson, and lastly, La Center. With a breadth of experience in a variety of settings around Western Washington, I am confident that we can continue the development of our team to serve students within this amazing community.
I believe in the mission of the La Center School District; create a supportive learning environment that empowers students to reach their fullest potential. We will do this in partnership with families, the community, staff, and students to develop confident and self-reliant life-long learners who can thrive in a rapidly changing, more technologically advanced, and diverse society. Specifically, two areas of focus are the “partnerships with families, community, staff, and students” and “develop confident and self-reliant life-long learners who can thrive.” This work is too complex to operate as an independent contractor, and we rely heavily on the work families do every day to love, raise, and teach their children. We are partners in the growth of our students. Additionally, confidence and self-reliance are two important traits for students to develop so they can thrive and participate in and out of our community.
Having moved my family to La Center this year, we are excited to be a part of the La Center community. I have been married for 28 years and Casaundra and I have raised three amazing children. My youngest Emily, will attend La Center High School as a senior in the fall.
Once again, I am very excited about the coming school year. If you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns please let me know.
Peter Rosenkranz, Superintendent
La Center School District
