Newcastle Elementary Principal Marla Newton announced May 30 that she has taken a position in the Federal Way School District.

“Marla truly has a heart for students and while she will be missed in Issaquah we wish her the very best in this next phase of her career,” said Issaquah School District superintendent Ron Thiele.

The search for Newton’s replacement will begin in earnest, but first, Thiele wants to know what traits the community would like to see in their new principal. Families can offer feedback in an online survey at until 4 p.m. June 9.

“Along with our selection committee, I will work to ensure your next principal will inspire and lead Newcastle to new levels of achievement and hope to have this person hired by late June,” Thiele said.
