Message from Principal Jensen
Thank you for taking the time to visit our school! I am proud to serve as the Principal for Ptarmigan Ridge Elementary. This school and community is such an amazing place to be a small part of. I feel truly blessed for the little part that I get to play in our student’s lives.
I have been in education for fourteen years, most of those at the elementary level. I am from a small town in Western Washington, so Orting is the perfect place for me, and the small town culture is one that I understand well. I appreciate the experiences that I have been given in some bigger districts, and I am thrilled to get to bring those with me here.
When I am not at school with our school family, I am probably home with my family. My husband and I have three young boys. Being a mom is a lens that I often use when making a decision, “would I want this for my son?” As every parent knows we can’t always make things as easy for our kids as we would like to, and we know that they will make mistakes. My goal with my boys, as well as your student, is that I am able to help them learn from that mistake now so that it doesn’t get repeated.
My door is always open, so please stop by and say hello.
Principal Alicia Jensen
