Chris Thomas

Welcome to Rock Creek Elementary! 

In building the school community of our dreams, the staff at Rock Creek is committed to three areas of focus that will guide our work; relationship, collaboration and student centered decisions. It is our hope that everyone in our community will see and hear this commitment on a daily basis and throughout our future together.

I am proud to share that I attended Tahoma schools K-12, graduating from Tahoma High School in 1988. After working 9 years as an administrator in the Bellevue School District, I returned to Tahoma as the Principal of Glacier Park Elementary in 2010, and transferred to Rock Creek with the district wide transition in 2017. In August, my wife and I celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary. Our daughter is a college freshman and our son a high school sophomore. Outside of school, our family can most often be found playing and enjoying sporting events together.

I’m happy to know many of you already and look forward to getting to know the rest of you. I want to hear from you, so please feel free to contact me anytime.

It's great to be an Eagle!


Chris Thomas
