We are deeply saddened by the death of one of our long-time staff members, Sheila Stuhlsatz, who passed away on Thursday after a long battle with cancer. Affectionately known as “Maestra” by her students and fellow staff members, Sheila was a beloved middle school/high school Spanish teacher who served our schools for two decades, including one year as principal of Kalma Elementary School. “No one among us would characterize Sheila as anything less than a beacon of positivity,” wrote Eric Nerison, Kalama School District Superintendent, in a Friday morning letter to school staff. “Her contagious smile, heartfelt laugh, and inner strength are a few of the characteristics that stand out in my heart… Whether serving as a Spanish teacher, assistant principal, or principal, Maestra was a champion for all students.” Please join our school community as we mourn the loss of Maestra, and support one another during this trying time.
