Assistant Principal - Mr. Donald Rothemich

Assistant Principal's Message

I am excited to join the Silver Lake team! I have had such a warm welcome from teachers and staff from SLRMS and from across the region. This will be my 20th year in education. I had the privilege of teaching middle school social studies for fifteen years before becoming a middle school assistant principal. I love connecting with students and building positive relationships. While middle school can be a challenging time for children to navigate, it is also an incredibly dynamic time where children develop independence and determine the people they want to be. I enjoy helping students build positive relationships with teachers, staff members, friends, and peers.

Alongside Ms. Couet and the rest of our fantastic team at SLRMS, I look forward to building deeper connections within our school community and contributing to a positive school culture that helps everyone feel welcome, cared for, and prepared for the challenges of high school and beyond. Welcome to Silver Lake; please do not hesitate to contact me if I can help you with anything.
