Incoming Maple View Principal Bill Weis

A familiar leader will step into the principal’s office at Maple View Middle School next school year, as current Principal Andy McGrath leaves for retirement. On Tuesday, the Tahoma School Board approved hiring Bill Weis to lead Maple View.

Weis is a former science and math teacher who taught at the old Tahoma High School for 16 years, before the building became Maple View Middle School in 2017. Weis, who also served as an assistant football coach, school district instructional science coach, and dean of students at Summit Trail Middle School for one year, is completing his second year as an assistant principal at Issaquah School District’s Maywood Middle School. Among his responsibilities at Maywood is extensive work with cultural competency and inclusion, which also is a Tahoma priority.
Returning to Tahoma and his former school building is a dream come true, Weis said. “I have deep roots out here, raised my family here,” he said. “This is home to me.”
Weis said he is eager to begin working at Maple View and is appreciative of the strong learning culture that McGrath and the staff have built. The challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic add a layer of uncertainty for all schools, but Weis said he is confident that the staff, students, and parents associated with Maple View will find ways to work together and move forward.

“I know Andy is leaving a strong staff culture, with strong teacher leaders,” he said. “We will continue to carry that mantle, lock arms, lean on teacher leaders and parent leaders to navigate these uncertain times together.”
